Of the 11 blocks foreseen in the new hospital project, two are already in operation. According to UFJF, the unit is expected to incorporate 78 new spaces dedicated to academic training, increasing the number of residents annually by 361.
The president will be accompanied by Mayor Margarida Salomão (PT), some members of the Workers’ Party of Minas Gerais and the Minister of Education, Camilo Santana.
The University Hospital had been closed since 2015 and was used as a parking lot for university employees. The work began in 2012 and is part of the largest investment package in the history of UFJF. The main obstacle to proceeding was in court, brought by employees who worked on the construction.
Now, the project foresees the installation of ten psychiatric ward beds and 12 beds for burn treatment. In addition, there will be a total supply of 78 clinical beds and 78 surgical beds.
13 obstetric beds, 25 pediatric beds and 10 pediatric ICU beds will be made available. The hemodynamics area will also be opened, enabling essential exams to be carried out.
40 ICU beds will also be created for adults, divided into 10 clinical beds, 10 surgical beds, 10 coronary beds and 10 neurological beds.
