the news of Ulss 3 Serenissima

VENICE – The health of tomorrow, which is planned today, also in the Venetian area, will also pass through the new community hospitals and the new community houses, as they have been called. In the Veneto Region plan there are 24 structures distributed in the province, equally divided: 12 community hospitals and the same number of community houses. Of the former, some are already in operation and others will be activated in the next 12/18 months; some are private under the convention and others public, already budgeted for the coffers of the Ulss 3 Serenissima directed by Edgardo Contato. For the latter, all new, the goal is to have them implemented by the end of 2026, which is the deadline indicated for the use of the funds of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan (Pnrr) through which they will be financed, with 35 million of Euro. But let’s see, specifically, what it is. Massimo Zuin, director of the social and health services of Ulss 3 explains: “Community hospitals are places of intermediate hospitalization: the typical patient who is hospitalized is no longer an acute patient who must be treated in an” ordinary “hospital, but that he is not yet so well to be able to go home ». In the regional cards we read that it is a place where a protected discharge can take place for stabilization and recovery before returning home. Another thing are the Community Houses which, unlike the former, are an absolute novelty. «They can be thought of – says Zuin – as maxi-clinics containing several services, which will act as the first point of reference for the population. And since there is talk of a 24-hour opening, they could become the first, real alternative to the emergency rooms that are clogged everywhere “, especially with white codes. Currently there are already 124 active beds in the following community hospitals: 21 in the Civile di Venezia, 40 in Noale (20 on the third floor of the monobloc of the former hospital and the same number in the Relaxxi retirement home), 12 in the hospital in Chioggia , 30 at the Nazareth Center in Zelarino, 10 at the Fatebenefratelli in Venice and 11 at the San Camillo del Lido. They are soon to be activated: another 3 at the Civile di Venezia, another 24 on the fourth floor of the Noale monobloc (so far left unfinished); 12 in Mirano, 10 in Villa Salus; 24 in Dolo, another 5 at Fatebenefratelli for a total of other 78 beds. Total of the total: 124 + 78, 202. “The goal is to have them all ready by the end of 2023. Those of Dolo,” moved “to Noale, will be recovered, and in fact added, in the revision of the resolution” explains Zuin.
The Community Houses will instead be built in the following places: in the Civile di Venezia, on the Lido, in via Cappuccina in Mestre, in the districts of Favaro, Marghera and Mira (brand new), in Marcon and Martellago, in the hospitals of Dolo and Chioggia, in Noale on the ground floor in the former emergency room and in the health center of Cavarzere. «How they will be and how they will work is still an open discussion also because there are many different models and examples around Italy – underlines Zuin – They are divided into“ hub ”and“ spoke ”. The services that the hubs may contain are: primary care with group and integrated medicines, general practitioners with health and administrative personnel; free choice pediatricians; the medical guard; the collection centers; nursing services; home care; home specialist for high prevalence pathologies; the reservation center; integration with social services; basic radiology and diagnostics; screenings; the consultors; sports and rehabilitation medicine; mental health and addiction services ”. Something more than the current health districts that can remain open day and night. «The average age of the Venetian population is high and 40% of patients have chronic problems – observes Zuin – The idea is to have multifunctional structures, which also lead to an acceleration on the front of group medicines. The community houses, financed by the NRP, will become a reality within four to five years, integrating the existing network and making our health care make a qualitative leap. “
