According to a statement from the UAN, to which VerAngola had access, the future hospital will have two floors and will be built in an area of 16,000 square meters.
The unit will provide various types of services, such as operating rooms, inpatient and outpatient services, the note indicates, adding that "with well-equipped equipment, the hospital will guarantee a quality service, contributing to the most modern standards focused on education, teaching and research".
Estimated at more than 90 million dollars, the work will be delivered over a four-year period and will be carried out by Switzerland's Promed International.
On the occasion, the minister said that this launch "represents an old dream of the university", especially for the Faculty of Medicine, which has "long been clamoring for a hospital that has a specific vocation for teaching, with a very strong focus on scientific research".
Speaking to Rádio Nacional de Angola (RNA), Maria do Rosário Bragança said that "with this hospital, which will also integrate the national health system", the university will pass, "similarly to what happens with other universities around the world", to "have a hospital with characteristics that are different from others because it has this particularity of respecting principles both for basic medical education and for advanced, postgraduate and scientific research training, always with the purpose of better serving the community ".
