HPA group inaugurates state-of-the-art Hospital Particular da Madeira
Today, Friday May 17, is another red-letter day for the HPA health group which runs private hospitals and clinics throughout the Algarve.
At 5pm, the new Hospital Particular da Madeira will be inaugurated in the presence of the regional president of the island, the Mayor of Funchal and other dignitaries.
This is a project that has cost over €40 million – with investment involving Madeiran shareholders.
The new facility will be “the most modern and differentiated Private Health Unit in the region of Madeira”.
With elegant, functional architecture – designed to respect global environmental sustainability – it covers an area of 20,000 sq metres, in which there will be a total of 100 beds, a round-the-clock A&E department, a ‘woman and child unit’ – including emergency pediatrics and maternity – an oncology and intensive care department, and operating theatres.
Says the press release preceding the launch, one of the operating theatres will be a ‘hybrid’ “equipped with state-of-the-art technology for surgical procedures in cardiology, vascular surgery, neurosurgery and numerous other medical and surgical specialities”.
As far as complementary diagnostic examinations are concerned, the new HPM as it will be known will offer “almost total coverage with a highlight on its modern clinical analyses laboratory as well as its modern imagiology unit, with the latest generation MRI, CT scan, mammography, ultrasound and digital x-ray.
HPA health group has been involved in private health and health tourism for over 20 years now.
The group has treated over two million patients during that time, and built up a staffbase of around 2000.
HPA has been awarded several Quality Certification Awards. Two of its hospitals are accredited in both clinical and patient safety by the “most prestigious international entity in this field, the joint commission international”.
