Regional University Hospital of Maringá

Developed to give support mainly to the Medicine and Nursing courses, the Regional University Hospital of Maringá consists of a teaching-oriented and assistance-oriented Hospital Unit that integrates a healthcare network, and is a reference in providing health care through the Unified Health System (Sistema Único de Saúde – SUS) in a region that comprehends more than 130 municipalities.

The hospital manages 123 beds, including adult, pediatric, neonatal, and intermediate care ICUs. It also carries out 12 thousand hospitalizations on average, about 33 thousand specialty ambulatory appointments and almost 450 thousand exams per year. Additionally, approximately 60 thousand people go through its emergency service.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital has played a strategic role in assisting patients infected with this virus, through the opening of 50 new hospital beds exclusively dedicated to the disease. The new hospital beds were set up in a recently opened ward with a total capacity of 108 hospital beds, which may be put into operation when this critical situation, induced by the virus, diminishes.

Its physical area, which currently comprises about 15 thousand square meters, is being extended. There are approximately eight thousand square meters under construction and four thousand square meters to be started.

As for the constructions in progress, we point out the building of the support services ward, the new operating room, the new rehab center, and the solid waste center.

Along with being important in the support area, the University Hospital is also decisive in the education of future professionals. It was the first state hospital to receive an accreditation from the Ministry of Health and Education as a Teaching Hospital. At present, it serves as a place for internship and research to the multiple courses of UEM in the health field, and to other Higher Education Institutions of Maringá.
