The board of HESE and Patrício finally found the right partner in Siemens Healthineers. In 2018 they entered into a Value Partnership with the company for a period of eight years.

Siemens Healthineers is also supporting research activities and collaboration between the cardiovascular innovation center and the University of Évora to train future specialists, a collaboration which did not exist to this extent before. It is not only the patients who benefit from this: Hospital board also hopes to attract young talents to HESE through the advanced training and research projects.
