History Logs

Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Brazil

Location: Guarapuava

Total Budget: $30,000

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health

HOSPITAL SANTA TEREZA (HST) has been serving the community of Guarapuava for over 50 years, as well as surrounding municipalities, totaling 22 (twenty-two) municipalities in the Midwest region of Paraná, a population of over half a million of inhabitants, the largest geographical extension in the State of Paraná, and one of the poorest regions.

Regional reference hospital for high-risk pregnancy, traumatology and orthopedics. It is the main pediatric ICU hospital in the region, especially for a population that depends on free care. Currently, 93% of care is provided to clients/patients of the Unified Health System (SUS).

In 1990, the hospital inaugurated its NEO-ICU, even though it is a reference in pediatrics, over the years there has been scrapping and obsolescence of the infrastructure, which has lost its ability to maintain the necessary quality of the pediatric sector and for the work of professionals in health.

This project will generate relevant improvements for the region, impacting positively in several aspects:

(a) 60% (sixty) percent increase in the number of hospitalizations - benefiting the population; (b) reducing the risk of contamination, improving accommodation and facilities; (c) Improving the quality of patient care; (d) Improvement of quality and working conditions for health professionals.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
