HistoryEdit

Throughout the 19th Century, the islands had no resident healthcare service. A temporary hospital was constructed in 1942. In 1971, the Camogli hospital was constructed, and was named after the hometown of Italian settlers Andrea Repetto & Gaetano Lavarello.[3]

On 7 June 2017 a new facility, named the Camogli Medical Centre, was constructed, meeting current NHS standards.

ServicesEdit

The hospital provides two hospital wards, each containing a bed, with the capability to hold two. The facility also features an Emergency room, X-Ray, ambulance service, and dental services.[4]
