The IRCCS Santa Lucia has played an important role in the development of an important area of medicine, rehabilitation. The aim is partial or total recovery of impaired functions in people experiencing disability, by making use of experience acquired in the yearly hospitalization of almost two thousand patients and the treatment of about 500 outpatients and Day Hospital patients. The work of the Fondazione Santa Lucia dates back to 1960 when, under another name, the facility was devoted to the care of disabled veterans of World War Two. On 7 August 1992, the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of the University and Scientific and Technological Research, granted the Fondazione Santa Lucia the status of Scientific Institute for Hospitalisation and Treatment of National Importance and High-level Specialisation in Neuromotor Rehabilitation, in recognition of its constant commitment to clinical, research and teaching activities.


As a Scientific Institute for Hospitalisation and Treatment, the Santa Lucia Foundation carries out intensive research work in the fields of neuromotor rehabilitation and, more generally of neuroscience, including research aimed at preventing and limiting the invalidating effects of CNS pathologies. Particular attention has been devoted to aging and to aging related disease such as Alzheimer's Disease and Parkinson's Disease but also diseases which are more frequent in aged subjects, such as stroke. Research on aging related diseases amounts to about 20% of all the activities performed by both clinical and preclinical research laboratories of Santa Lucia Foundation involving the Departments of Clinical and Behavioral Neurology, Neuromotor Physiology, Experimental Neuroscience, Neuropsychology, Neurophysiology, Functional Neuroimaging and Clinical Translational Research.
