JHM International inks deal for cardiac surgery project in Italy

Johns Hopkins Medicine International has signed a three-year collaboration agreement with San Matteo Hospital in Pavia, Italy, to establish the first cardiac surgery project of its kind for JHMI in Europe.

Cardiac surgeons, perfusionists, nurses and anesthesiologists from Johns Hopkins will share their expertise and conduct up to 20 surgeries per year with their colleagues at San Matteo, and three observers from the Italian hospital will visit The Johns Hopkins Hospital to learn about its cutting-edge cardiac research and innovations.
