The Agostino Gemelli Teaching Hospital (Italian: Policlinico Universitario Agostino Gemelli) is a large general hospital of 1,850 beds in Rome, Italy. It serves as the teaching hospital for the medical school of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore (the largest privately owned university in Italy, founded in 1921 in Milan), and owes its name to the university founder, the Franciscan friar, physician and psychologist Agostino Gemelli.Construction began in 1959 on the hill of Monte Mario in Rome, and the hospital opened its doors in July 1964. It provides free medical assistance as part of the Italian national health system as well as paid-for “private” assistance in hotel-style wards called “Solventi” (Italian for “Payers”), and includes facilities for basic and clinical research, on-site student residences, three canteens, three cafeterias, one restaurant, one bookshop, and two medical libraries.
