Empowering communities, transforming lives.
Alentejo in Portugal has the oldest population in the country. Heart disease is the leading health risk. To improve cardiovascular care, we helped Évora Hospital to double their capacity and build a world-class cardiovascular center. Today, it treats patients both far and near – including Francisco Antonio Rosa who now receives the care he needs.
Because every patient matters, we create new possibilities in a world of limited resources.
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.
