SAN RAFFAELE HOSPITAL (MILAN): INTERPARKING AND GKSD CREATE A JOINT VENTURE FOR PARKING MANAGEMENT
Interparking Italia and GKSD are pleased to announce the beginning of a strong collaboration between the two companies with regards to the parking management of the San Raffaele Hospital (Milan).
Since 6 December, the Venetian Parking Company, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Belgian Holding Interparking S.A./N.V. became a 50% partner of the management Company "Interparking San Raffaele Srl" while the other 50% will be owned by GKSD Parking, part of the San Donato Group.
The newly-formed company will manage all the parking areas inside the complex of the renowned Milanese hospital, as well as two "satellite" areas that will now be integrated to improve the logistics and access to the facilities for both patients and employees. With 1,958 parking spaces spread over three underground floors, this multi-storey car park is the main parking infrastructure within the scope of the new alliance, which are also part of the "Dimer" Area with 146 spaces and the "Amsa" area with close to 40.
"With this important partnership, the development of our hospital division, which already serves two important structures as Papa Giovanni XXIII of Bergamo and Policlinico Gemelli of Rome, reached an important milestone. We’re sure that we can provide Ospedale San Raffaele an exceptional service, while keeping the same high-quality standards that the structure already offers to its patients,” says Davide Fornasiero, CEO of Interparking Italia."
Among the primary new developments for users, access automations have already been modernised for a more fluid and comfortable visitor experience.
This collaboration will be the first stage in a series of projects that will support the two entities, not only in terms of parking management, but also in a broader vision, integrating renewable energy production and logistics management in an innovative way.
"GKSD has always invested in concrete and innovative projects to promote social development and make real changes through strategic management solutions, as well as in the original vision of its president Kamel Ghribi,” explains Francesco Sorrentino, CEO of GKSD Parking. “We believe that this partnership will also create added value, offering an innovative service to hospital users”.
For Roland Cracco, CEO of Interparking Group : “This strategic partnership to facilitate mobility for patients, staff and visitors of the San Raffaele Hospital is part of our extensive European development plan. After the recent construction of the official car park of Bordet Hospital in Brussels, these three sites join the 41 other hospital car parks managed by the Interparking Group, representing a total of over 35,000 parking spaces in Europe”.
