Vatican launches recovery plan for Rome hospital
October 21, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican has announced a recovery effort to address an “economic and management crisis” at a historic hospital on Rome’s Tiber Island. The San Giovanni Calibita-Fatebenefratelli Hospital, founded in 1585 by the Hospitalers of St. John of God, has a history of service to the poor and, during World War II, of sheltering Jewish refugees—who were diagnosed with a fictitious communicable disease that deterred Nazi authorities from searching the premises.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
