Pilot Detail

Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria Santa Maria della Misericordia

Santa Maria della Misericordia Hospital is a 700 year old institution. The oldest document attesting its existence dates back to 1282.

At that time in Udine arose the brotherhood Santa Maria della Misericordia dei Battuti  which undertook  the care of sick people.

In the fourteenth century, the Santa Maria della Misericordia dei Battuti Hospital represented an important institution with its own organization and administration, as well as a church and a chapel.
In the second half of 1500 Santa Maria della Misericordia dei Battuti Hospital joined with  two other institutions, the SS. Trinity of the Germans, managed by the Teutonic brotherhood of Udine and the one dedicated to S. Maddalena degli Esposti, assuming the new name of Ospedale Maggiore Santa Maria della Misericordia dei Battuti.

The Faculty of Medicine of Udine was established in November 1982, as a Regional Administration measure related to the reconstruction of Friuli-Venezia Giulia region hit by the 1976 earthquake.
In 1995 the Hospital assumed the name of “Azienda Ospedaliera Santa Maria della Misericordia”.
