Opened in 1977 and with a capacity of 1,048 beds, the hospital admits 25,000 to 30,000 patients annually and performs between 350,000 and 400,000 consultations. 

More than 4,000 staff members, in 80 different professions, contribute daily to provide care aiming for ambition, excellence and the patients’ well-being.
