Total Budget: $37,795

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Humanitarian Project - Area of Focus: Disease Prevention and Treatment.

Supported Goals: Improve the health infrastructure of local communities; strengthening health systems.

One of the objectives of the project is the structuring of 04 hospital beds (2 bedrooms) - which are currently very precarious - acquiring equipment for the modernization of the hospital's technology park, offering beds with a modern structure, more efficient and more comfortable for patients and their families. The project also includes the purchase of a human breast pump to serve the Milk Bank - currently has only one equipment and when breaking or needing maintenance, the extraction of milk has to be manual. The project also contemplates the Surgical Center with the acquisition of a modern Electric Scalpel - currently the hospital does not have this equipment. This modernization will offer a better quality of life through prevention and relief of suffering patients.

A SANTA CASA DE MISERICÓRDIA DE RIO CLARO is a philanthropic institution that serves over 134 years, fulfilling its mission of serving all with dignity and charity.

It is a unique hospital in the city and region for the care of the Unified Health System - SUS (totally free care).

The structuring of these 04 beds will be of great importance for the care, offering beds with modern structure and more comfort for the patient and his family.

In the Santa Casa Milk Bank Sector, which is a reference for Rio Claro and the region, it meets the need for premature babies admitted to the hospital and also supplies milk to other hospitals in the region due to the importance of breastfeeding and human milk for growth. and development of newborns. The Milk Bank has the entire structure for donor milk collection, performing the processing, pasteurization and proper storage. Last year, 2018, 352 liters of human milk were collected and distributed.

The equipment of this project will contribute to the optimization of the process of human milk extraction of patients and donors, thus benefiting the premature babies hospitalized and also to serve the hospitals in the region.

The Santa Casa de Rio Claro Surgical Center has 05 operating rooms and 05 anesthetic recovery beds. High and medium complexity surgeries are performed in various specialties, such as neurosurgery, vascular, pediatric, gynecology, orthopedics as well as oncologic surgeries of various specialties.
