Italian Hospital Demands EUR100,000 for Kubica Stay

Robert Kubica had told the media several times that he was grateful to the medical staff at the Santa Corona hospital (in Pietra Ligure) for the way they have taken care of his condition from the time he was brought in and until he was released. Warm feelings aside now, the Italian hospital is now filing an insurance claim to recover the hefty bill from his stay.

According to several reports in the Italian media – including the highly authoritative La Gazzetta dello Sport, La Stampa and the ANSA news agency – Kubica's 76-day stay in the Italian hospital will set him (well, actually, his insurance company) back some EUR100,000.

Kubica was brought to the Santa Corona hospital immediately after he had suffered a rally crash in early February. In the next month or so, the Pole underwent a total of 4 surgeries (all lengthly ones). After his medical condition had stabilized, the Renault driver demanded that he'd continue his rehabilitation in the Italian facility, as he was very pleased with how the doctors treated him.

According to the aforementioned sources, each day in the hospital, including the 4 medical interventions, cost Kubica some EUR1300 ($1,900).

The Polish driver has recently left the medical centre in Pietra Ligure to enjoy a few days of complete rest, until resuming rehabilitation at home. Although he was scheduled to attend Sunday's beatification of his late countryman John Paul II, his manager Daniele Morelli told the media that his client decided not to travel to Rome in order to make sure he's fully recharged for the recovery period ahead.
