The preliminary license to build the Pequeno Príncipe North (Juril Carnasciali Pequeno Príncipe Education and Research Hospital Complex) was signed on the 5th of June, kicking off a new phase in the 99-year history of Brazil’s largest pediatric hospital.
Pequeno Príncipe North’s project plans to build two new hospitals – a day hospital and a high complexity unit –, Pequeno Príncipe College and Pelé Pequeno Príncipe Research Institute buildings and a Cultural Center. Pequeno Príncipe North will be an addition to the current Hospital and will represent an expansion of the healthcare currently offered to the population.
Many authorities were present during the preliminary license signing ceremony and among them was the mayor of Curitiba, Rafael Greca, that highlighted the importance of a hospital like Pequeno Príncipe in the northern region of the city. “I am very happy to authorize this new hospital’s activities. Pequeno Príncipe is a center of excellence,” he pointed out.

These premises were adopted in the creation of the project, by respecting the remaining forest and native lands, making the best of water use and moving earth without harming the environment, along with other initiatives. This was done by Dr. Raul Carneiro Hospital Association for Childhood Protection, maintaining organization of Pequeno Príncipe Complex, in partnership with Eunice Weaver Association of Paraná (AEW-PR). This groundbreaking project brings together healthcare, research, education, culture, social mobilization and the conservation of nature on behalf of life.
