COT Messina

Multi-Specialty Medical Center COT S.p.A.

COTCOT SpA (COT is the acronym for CURE ORTOPEDICHE TRAUMATOLOGICHE, i.e. ORTHOPEDIC TRAUMA CARE) is a Multi-Specialty Medical Center that has been active in Messina since August 1973. An independent healthcare provider of NHS-funded services, and a member of AIOP (the Italian Association of Private Hospitals), COT is a Medical Center providing care in the areas of Orthopedic Trauma, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Vascular Surgery, Ophthalmology, and Rehabilitation. Located at via Ducezio n° 1, within walking distance of the historical city center, COT is very easy to reach also thanks to its close proximity to the motorway junctions of Messina-Centro and Messina-Boccetta. 

From quality to excellence.

The “Right to Live” has always motivated COT to follow down the path of ongoing keenness for research, and has always pointed the way forward to service excellence. Constant technology upgrading, and continuing education for medical and paramedical staff are thus attained in the wake of quality, moulded by natural and continuing needs for improvement. COT was certified by DNV (Det Norske Veritas) under ISO 9001 certification requirements already back in 1999, the very first private healthcare organization in central and southern Italy to attain ISO certification, as we have always believed it essential to be evaluated by a third party. Years later, a system encompassing generalist requirements appeared to be no longer enough to shift from quality to excellence in health care. Based on these grounds, the Executive Board undertook a specific journey – the result of financial efforts and investments in human and technical resources – that led COT to be awarded with Joint Commission International accreditation on February 10, 2014. 

Sharing is mutual enhancement of knowledge. 

[…] Hospitality evokes the ancient meanings why the venue for curing the sick was given the name of “hospital”, i.e. a place where the suffering are hosted and made welcome in their uniqueness and irreplicability. Hospitality is not only hosting but also answering the needs of guests. A profound need to personalize the approach, to move from curing to taking care is thus perceived. Under this perspective, hospitality can be identified as the anthropological dimension that summarizes and relates the various forms of prevention, cure, and rehabilitation.[…]

L’Istituto Polispecialistico Cot di Messina punta anche sulla chirurgia oculistica di eccellenza. Chirurgia della retina, casi complessi di cataratta, intervento di cataratta in età pediatrica: sono questi gli ambiti in cui gli oculisti di COT operano ormai da tempo.

Per condividere con il territorio le potenzialità interventistiche dell’Istituto e le tecniche utilizzate, sono stati organizzati una serie di eventi che divulgando best practices, puntando ad informare gli oculisti che lavorano in Sicilia e nella vicina Calabria. Gli oculisti invitati, oltre ad assistere alla parte teorico-introduttiva durante la quale saranno analizzati i casi da trattare, vengono autorizzati ad accedere in sala operatoria per assistere agli interventi presentati. A fine pomeriggio, il dottor Demetrio Romeo specialista del segmento anteriore e il dottor Antonio Randazzo specialista della retina e del vitreo modereranno un focus sui casi trattati.
Condivisione è il comune accrescimento della conoscenza.
