The 4th Civil Court of Cáceres, 220 km from Cuiabá, determined that Hospital São Luiz should reserve a separate wing for the care of patients of a health plan that operates in the western region of the state. Currently, the unit is operated by the government of Mato Grosso, after an administrative request for the building and equipment.

Judge Henriqueta Fernanda Chaves Alencar Ferreira Lima determined that the state reserve a ward for the care of these patients for at least six months (180 days).
The decision also says that there must be a division of physical space for care separately from users of the Unified Health System (SUS).
The State Department of Health (SES) is studying the decision and has not yet issued a position.
The Justice determined that the cooperating, accredited or contracted doctors must continue to attend on site. According to her, more than 40,000 people who live in the western region depend on the health plan and on urgent and emergency care at the hospital unit.
The judge determined a period of 48 hours to comply with the decision.
In this 180-day period, the health plan must allow for a gradual change in the physical service network, without harming users.
The government of Mato Grosso announced, in an extra edition of the Official Gazette on March 28, the administrative request of Hospital São Luiz. The state even announced 100% service by the SUS.
Pró-Saúde, which manages the unit, informed through a note that it was surprised by the decree and that it will take appropriate measures to reverse the effects.
The unit, which until then was contracted by the SES, threatened to close its doors and was not complying with the established with the SUS.
