Order of Malta’s medical work highlighted

Catholic World News - November 16, 2012

As a conference sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers takes place in Rome, Vatican Radio has highlighted the medical work of the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Malta in Italy.

The order, according to Professor Domenico Arduini of Rome’s Tor Vergata University, operates 55 hospitals.

“The first thing (we do) is to help the poor and the elderly,” he explained. “In highly developed countries we work with handicapped people … so a family is surrounded not only by the doctors or by technicians or by nurses, but also by the volunteers.”
