Medelit’s Philosophy

medelit philosophy

We agree with the concept of health as defined by the WHO: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

We base our daily approach to patients on this definition. Our goal is therefore that of delivering a thorough medical assistance, with a special attention to recognising and correcting all factors that can negatively affect a person’s health.

This is the reason for which we pay special attention to foreigners staying in Milan or Rome.

We believe each and every person, even when far away from home and in a foreign country, should have the possibility of receiving prompt, first-rate medical attention. We also believe that this should be delivered in a comprehensible, comfortable and timely way.

Medelit’s healthcare team is formed by highly-selected, extremely qualified and experienced professionals.
We are committed to providing excellence in home healthcare:

  • Accessibility and Contact: Our services can be easily booked by phone or email, payment can be done directly whilst booking, with a credit card. Our professionals are easily traceable and contactable.
  • Dedicated time and privacy: Dedicated time is based on your needs. Your privacy is respected and guaranteed.
  • Expertise, kindness and sensitiveness: Our professionals are selected for their high levels of ability and compassion.

Every person who will turn to Medelit will have the right to receive:

  • A dignified and respectful treatment.
  • A reserved, trustworthy and careful treatment.
  • A corteous, reliable and timely service.
