"We have an imaging service with almost all aspects," she said, adding that they have CAT, MRI, as well as a mammogram to help with breast cancer screening and colon cancer screening.

"We have a pathological anatomy laboratory to rule out cancerous diseases. We have a hematology laboratory, which does all kinds of blood analyses," she added.

About the beds, the doctor explained that of the total of 200, 100 beds are for pediatrics and 100 are for obstetrics and gynecology.

In addition, the hospital also has some projects in its portfolio, such as performing surgeries for obstetric fistulas and the medically assisted fertilization service, which should be implemented this year.

"We are going to operate on fistulas here, but more than operating, we are going to create a training school here for obstetric surgeons for Portuguese-speaking countries," said the doctor, quoted by RNA.

"We have the project to carry out the medically assisted fertilization service here in this unit, it is a project that we already have the law approved and that we have to carry out and we will try to materialize this aspect that is also a great anxiety for a significant part of women , therefore, in terms of projects, these are in the portfolio that we plan to implement throughout this year", she added.
