Governor Ibaneis Rocha (MDB) commented, this Thursday (22/9), about the collective effort of elective surgeries scheduled to take place in the Federal District. The Health Department (SES-DF) hired seven private hospitals to act in the emergency action, which should last four months and focus on cases of hernia, gallbladder and uterus removal.
“The big complaint [na Saúde] that we have today stems from the time of the pandemic, when more than 22 thousand surgeries were accumulated. Surgeries are starting today in partnership with the private network. There will be more than 5 thousand to help relieve this queue. We hope that, as soon as possible, we can catch up on the scope of surgeries in the DF”, highlighted Ibaneis.
The first private health units to act in the task force will be the São Mateus, Anchieta, Daher and São Francisco hospitals.
Hospitals Brasília Águas Claras, Home and Hospital das Clínicas also sent proposals, passed the technical evaluation and will close a contract with the local Executive in the coming days. The investment by the Federal District Government will be R$ 19.7 million.
SES-DF forecasts 3,233 operations initially. The measure will double the number of procedures normally performed within 120 days and should reduce the queue formed in the most critical period of the Covid-19 pandemic, when surgeries were suspended.
More than a thousand patients underwent the preoperative tests necessary for care in regional hospitals in the DF. Now, the Regulatory Complex of the Federal District will identify the list of priority cases, according to each procedure.
