Hospital receives generous donation

Hospital receives generous donation

By Stephanie Horsman - May 5, 2021

Philanthropist couple Angela and Jean Garavagno have presented the Princess Grace Hospital with a cheque of €2 million, allowing the facility to purchase state-of-the-art equipment and fund critical projects.

The generous donation was handed to the Princess Grace Hospital Centre (CHPG) on Tuesday 4th May by the well-loved local philanthropists.

During the handover ceremony, the couple expressed their thanks to the hospital and also unveiled a donor’s plaque engraved with their names to commemorate the event.

“Being in contact with the CHPG for many years, we have been able to fully appreciate the organisation and efficiency of the various departments as well as the perfect friendliness of the staff. This is the reason why we have decided to make this well-deserved donation,” said Mr and Mrs Garavagno.

According to Director of the CHPG Benoîte de Sevelinges, their donation will allow the hospital to acquire a neuro-navigation system in ENT, a robot for transcranial magnetic stimulation in psychiatry, and a system of hemodynamic monitoring for cardiology. It will also help fund projects for clinical research, palliative care and quality of life at work.

This is not the first act of generosity displayed by the Garavagnos. In April 2019 they donated two villas to be used for social purposes to the Italian town of Trinità near Cuneo. One was given to the Municipality, the other to an elder care facility. This kindness spurred the government to offer them honorary citizenship for “high social and welfare value” just three months later in July 2019.
