With official launch scheduled for next Monday, October 18, the new HDOC – Hospital Dr. Oswaldo Cruz, managed by Coaph Saúde, presents itself as equipment to expand the base of hospital care in Fortaleza. The hospital has 46 beds, divided between the infirmary and apartments, 10 beds in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU), two surgical centers, clinical analysis laboratories, tomography, mammography, x-ray, urgent and emergency consultations and more .

“The Hospital will be a new health equipment for our population, helping mainly in carrying out procedures that have stagnated because of the pandemic, with medium-sized surgeries, as well as exams and procedures”, explains Pedro Coelho, general surgeon and director HDOC technician.

Dr. Pedro emphasizes that the operating room is suitable for general surgeries, in addition to specialties in urology, proctology, otolaryngology, oncology, thoracic and vascular surgery, among others. Coaph Saúde’s investment in the revitalization of the equipment was R$ 10 million, with around 600 direct jobs created. Currently, health professionals who are members of Coaph are being called for vacancies. If necessary, vacancies will be opened for the external public.

HDOC services are available to patients with health insurance, various health plans, in addition to private care. One of the facilities is the installment in up to 6 installments of surgical procedures that cost from R$1,000, such as cholecystectomy, surgery to remove kidney stones (kidney stones), tonsil removal and others.
