Fundacion Favaloro Hospital Universitario

Fundacion Favaloro Hospital Universitario

The Favaloro Foundation was established in 1975 as a not-for-profit organization by René G. Favaloro on his return to Argentina from the United States , with three main goals: providing medical care, generating scientific knowledge, and educating health professionals. Favaloro was following the principles of the Cleveland Clinic, where he had worked for ten years. There he had developed the “bypass” or coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), the fundamental work of his career and a technique that changed radically the history of coronary disease.

The achievements in medical care, teaching and research and the quality of its services place the Favaloro Foundation among the most prestigious health institutions in Latin America . But above all the advances in medicine and technology, prevails the commitment to always act in the best interest of the patient, the only privileged one, as René Favaloro used to say.
