Transfusion service of Italian Switzerland

Run directly by the Swiss Red Cross, the transfusion Service of Italian-speaking Switzerland is located in the same building as Cardiocentro Ticino, thus providing unquestionable guarantees in terms of safety.

A truly optimum situation that came into being when, thanks to the efforts of Prof. Moccetti, Cardiocentro Ticino was able to take advantage of a financial opportunity – a donation thanks to which the Transfusion Service was established in the same building as Cardiocentro which, at that time, had reached an advanced stage in its design.

The advantage for Cardiocentro patients is simply a fact: immediate availability of blood to cater for any need and emergency in operating theatres.
