Since 1990, we have worked tirelessly to advance the technological superiority of this special hospital for the care for the poor, the sick and suffering in Europe. Today, it one of the best equipped hospitals in all of Europe. Over the years we have helped with the acquisition of cancer treatment, diagnostic and rehabilitation modalities.

Recently, through the efforts of Pave the Way Foundation, the hospital, Casa Sollievo Della Sofferenza in San Giovanni Rotondo Italy, has acquireed a state of the art General Electric PET-CT Elite scanner. This enormous technological gift further advances the medical care for the poor of Europe, through the benevolent works of the hospital of St. Padre Pio.
