The Bambino Gesù Hospital is a children's hospital located in Rome. The Hospital, founded in 1869, actually is part of National Healthcare System in Rome. In recent years the hospital has reached high levels of specialization so that many parents bring their children not only from Rome or Italy, but also from European countries.
The Hospital, which was founded in 1869, is now part of the network of the National Healthcare System in the city of Rome on extraterritorial area administered by the Holy See. Since 1980, due to its prestige and to the strengthening of its relations with the Italian National Health System, it has become a significant point of reference for paediatrics at the national level. The trademark of the hospital in the last thirty years has been the high level of specialization in the treatment of children coming not only from Rome or Italy, but also from neighbouring European countries. In 1985 it was officially recognized as Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico IRCCS (Research Hospital), thus being included among the most important national comprehensive hospitals and becoming one of the three children’s research hospitals in Italy. On May 22, 1988, Michael Jackson visited children suffering from cancer in the hospital. He signed autographs and gave away sweets and records to the little patients. He promised a check of 100,000 pounds to the hospital. Within the framework of the National Healthcare System, the structure of the hospital has undergone significant revision, following the new organization processes of the Italian Public Administration and public healthcare in particular.
