The Cardiovascular and Thoracic Centre of Monaco (CCM) is a hospital which specialises in cardiovascular and thoracic diseases.

History[edit]

Envisioned in 1978, the Cardiovascular and Thoracic Centre of Monaco opened its doors in April 1987. With support from Monegasque authorities, the CCM was designed to address the shortage of beds in cardiology in the PACA region, but also to offer patients from all around the Mediterranean cutting-edge equipment. This small hospital is managed by Professor V. Dor, Dr JJ Pastor and G. Nervo. Since 2010, Gilles Dreyfus is the medical director.

The CCM has been used for humanitarian purposes.[1] In 2010, CCM was nominated by Siemens to be the first Siemens European Reference Center Cardiovascular Medicine.[2]
