Following the name and caring for the permanent incorporation of scientific and technological advances that enhance the quality of medicine, in less than a decade of operation, the hospital emerged with a central priority in cardiac surgery. Over all, involving all specialties, the hospital attends to over a thousand hospitalizations every month, about 18,000 diagnostic tests and approximately 550 surgeries. All this through a medicine that is comparable in quality, modernity and results, to the most important medical centers and hospitals around the world.
. According to the Superintendent Corporate of HCOR, Dr. Antonio Carlos Kfouri, he is proud to be part of the history of the institution. "We are the only specialized hospital which is on track to become a general hospital, maintaining the standard in cardiology and having its own ICU to support all other areas," he says.
Aiming to continue to follow the requirements and needs of the delicate health sector, HCOR has expansion plans that include new specialties. With an investment of about US$ 200 million, they are developing two new buildings to meet three specific categories. "In one building, scheduled to open in August of this year, will be running two next-generation hybrid rooms for cardiology and neurosurgery sectors," says Kfouri.
From the humanistic concepts that have always inspired the institution of how to manage healthcare, to the consolidation of a university recognized worldwide in all specialties which it operates, HCOR is now considered one of the six hospitals of excellence by the Health Ministry working on projects to improve public health in Brazil and one of the most respected institutions in the country.
Counting on all the technological infrastructure to meet any kind of disease and problems related to heart, besides the latest equipment generation and special materials for detailed diagnosis, HCOR still has an important work focused on assistance to children with heart disease – they perform about 300 high complexity surgeries and 1,200 outpatient visits per year.
With a trained medical personnel and a multidisciplinary team responsible in its more than 44,000 square meters of built area - not to mention the new projects being developed - the hospital is also an expert in orthopedics, neurology, neurosurgery, pulmonology, among other specialties.
