Clinica Ars Medica
Infracore acquired this property, located in the eastern part of the municipality of Gravesano on Via Cantonale, in 2012. The neighbourhood is dominated by residential buildings, and an industrial estate lies to the east of the hospital. The site comprises an area of 10,356 sqm. Gravesano is an approximately 15-minute drive (around 5 km) from the Lugano city centre, and the nearest motorway junction is about 2 km away. It is also connected to the local public transport network, with the “Gravesano, Grumo di Gravesano” bus stop situated close to the property. Buses leave for Lugano station twice an hour, with a journey time of around 25 minutes.
The hospital was completed in 1989 and was extended between 2001 and 2003 (second floor and basement). All rooms can be used for a relatively wide range of purposes. The facility includes a pool used by the physiotherapy unit and provides indoor and outdoor parking spaces. The building is in very good condition, and there are well-managed maintenance programmes in place. An important extension programme was started in 2013. Once completed, the clinic will have more space for rooms and medical facilities. A modular building has already been built, offering an additional area of 678 sqm.
Clinica Ars Medica (8,075 sqm, 74 beds) is one of the two Lugano hospitals acquired by Swiss Medical Network in 2012. The hospital has become the undisputed leader and the cantonal reference centre for orthopaedic surgery and traumatology of the locomotor system.
