The Pequeno Príncipe Complex is made up of three units – the Pequeno Príncipe Hospital, the Pequeno Príncipe College and the Pelé Pequeno Príncipe Research Institute – that work in an integrated and complementary manner to promote health, education, research, art, culture, and social mobilization.
A care unit of the Complex, the Pequeno Príncipe Hospital takes care of the health of boys and girls from all over Brazil. In addition to being the largest exclusively pediatric hospital in the country, it is a reference center where the most modern practices and research are carried out in the diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents.
It offers care in 35 specialties and is a reference in high and medium complexity procedures. The institution has 378 beds – 68 of them in ICUs – and performs at least 60% of care via the Public Health System (SUS, abbreviation in Portuguese).
Cradle of pediatrics in Paraná, the Hospital has been training specialists in different specialties for over four decades. More than 2,000 pediatricians, anesthesiologists, orthopedists and pediatric surgeons from different regions of the country, for example, have already completed their training and completed internships and residency at the institution.
The Institute has 17 main researchers, who are currently dedicated to about 100 projects divided into seven lines of research, 13 of which are exclusive to COVID-19. With a highly qualified team, the Complex’s research unit has faced the challenge of carrying out scientific studies in the current health scenario in Brazil and has made important contributions to providing better quality of life and well-being to its patients.
The Institute’s research activities collaborate decisively so that the institution always does more and better through high and medium complexity medicine. The studies also allow the institution to expand the scope of its work in Brazil and worldwide.
