Getting sick or having a medical emergency while on holiday is never a pleasant experience. If this happens though and you need urgent medical care, you should get to the one of the local hospitals in Liguria nearest to you. Be aware that Italian airports and many train stations also have medical teams and can provide first aid help.
In case you need to call an emergency hospital ambulance (EMERGENZA SANITARIA - Pronto Intervento), dial 118. And if you need to use other emergency phone numbers in Italy, you can find them here …
Here are a few useful travel health advice for Italy in general ...
If you suffer from serious illnesses or allergies, you should always carry a special note from your doctor certifying in detail the treatments in progress or that may be necessary.
If you reside in an EU country, you should make sure that you take your European Health Insurance Card (which replaced the old E-111 form), certifying coverage by your National Health Service.
For those of you coming from US and Canada though, be aware that Italy has no public medical program covering U.S. and Canadian citizens. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you take out an adequate insurance cover before travelling.
If you need to buy medicines, go to the local
(Farmacia) which generally follow shops' opening times -
8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and from 3:00 to 7:30 p.m., Monday to Saturday,
but in larger cities like Genoa many are open non-stop.
If you need to get to a pharmacy during night-time, check the outside of each pharmacy which will display its business hours and all-night pharmacies nearby. The addresses of all-night pharmacies are also published in local papers.
Below we list the address and phone numbers for the major hospitals in Liguria. And as finding directions in an unknown place can be quite frustrating especially when coupled with the added pressure of dealing with an emergency, we have also provided a Liguria map pin-pointing the locations for the major hospitals in Liguria provinces:
The arrows move you up, down, left and right (or grab the screen and pull in any direction)
