Why have we chosen the Caladrius as our emblem?

According to Roman mythology, Caladrius is a medium-sized white bird that lives in Royal residences. It has the power to diagnose diseases, to take them and fly towards the sun and burn them, the legend also says that the bird heals the most deadly wounds.

 

Later Caladrius takes on the appearance of a man and appears wherever medical support is needed.

 

We immediately thought that the fabulous story of this mythical bird perfectly describes the activity of our Case Managers. Our dynamic team is always available, loyal and clear to every patient that we support .

 

Away from the original white Caladrius of the legend, ours represents the diversity of healthcare around the world.
