St. Camillus de Lellis was born at Bocchianico and devoted himself to caring for the sick, sending members of his order to minister to wounded troops in Hungary and Croatia.
It was the first field medical unit, considered to be the first founding of the Red Cross Nurses we know today.
He was declared patron of the sick, with St. John of God, by Pope Leo XIII, and patron of nurses and nursing groups by Pope Pius XI. His feast day is July 18th.
