The hospital, which opened in June 2005, has 454 beds and is home to the 2nd level Emergency Department of the province of Modena, functionally integrated with the University Hospital and other hospitals in the province. The technological, structural and functional features of this new hospital are at the forefront of the healthcare sector.
Hospital Pneumatic Tube System manages the handling of small size goods such as laboratory samples, blood bags and drugs, while the transport of heavy materials is carried out in a fully automated way by the Automated Guided Vehicle. Therefore the vehicles do not need the aid of an operator in order to move, enabling automated transport for kitchen, pharmacy, laundry, waste and warehouse supplies.
