Italian city poised to unveil vision for huge redevelopment programme focused on teaching and research hospital

Long-term plans for the development of a huge medical facility in the Italian city of Turin are due to be unveiled this week, along with details of opportunities to work on the project – expected to regenerate a swathe of the Piedmont regional capital.

The teaching and research hospital is earmarked for the Avio-Oval area of the city – formerly home to a Fiat factory – and is envisaged to include a 127,000sq m healthcare and clinical training centre and a 10,000sq m research centre. The facility will boast more than 1,000 patient beds.

Also included in the project masterplan will be a 31,000sq m teaching centre dedicated to offering degree courses related to medicine and health, and 8,000sq m of short-term accommodation for guests and employees – both part of the second phase.
