New private hospital inaugurated

€40 million investment in private hospital

New private hospitalThe Private Hospital of Madeira will be presented to regional dignitaries at a public ceremony this Friday at 5:00 p.m. The presentation will be attended by the President of the Regional Government, the Mayor of Funchal and other entities. The new hospital can be found at the top of the dual carriageway that goes up from the “Fallen Angel” roundabout above Praia Formosa – below the impressive church of São Martinho, amid the rather characterless new apartment blocks on the Piornais hillside.

This work has cost more than €40 million and involves construction covering 20,000 square metres. Its main shareholders are the HPA Health Group and Madeiran investors. The facility will have 100 beds, 24-hour permanent care, a Women and Children Unit that will include Permanent Pediatric and Maternity Care, Oncology Unit, Intensive Care Unit,and an Operating Room with 4 rooms, one of which is a hybrid room with advanced technology for the specialties of cardiology, vascular surgery, neurosurgery and numerous medical and surgical specialties

The HPA Saúde Group was founded in 1996 with the opening of the first Hospital in Alvor, on the mainland. It is a private Hospital Group initially focusing on the provision of medical care in the Algarve, but more recently becoming very active in Madeira – most notably at the Madeira Medical Centre, where the driver from the recent awful bus crash in Canico was recently treated

  1. Private medical care will only be used by visitors and business etc.
    Wages are so low in Madeira that the majority will not be using this facility,shame really .Perhaps Ronaldo could put his hand in his pocket to build a facility for the population???

  2. Mike, whilst I can follow your logic that not many local residents will be able to use this facility, this will reduce the strain on the public ones. I know this is not perfect, as in equal treatment for all, but must be an improvement.
