The Meirelles Health Center, in Fortaleza, will undergo a renovation and immediately operate the state’s Pediatric Specialties Center, beginning August 2 this year. According to the Ceará government, the software and services will be moved to other places in the capital to ensure the assistance provided to users. It is scheduled to open in April 2022.
The state’s pediatric specialty center will have a new patient profile, with intermediate and high-complexity care for children and adolescents. The equipment will be a reference unit of the Ministry of Health of Ceará (CISA).
There will be teams working in pediatric outpatient clinics in general and in specialized fields, such as neurology, gastroenterology, endocrinology, pulmonology, allergy, nephrology, gynecology, dermatology, otolaryngology, and others.
The devices will also perform laboratory and imaging tests, as well as services in non-medical professional fields, such as nursing, nutrition, social work, psychology, physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy. The space will have a capacity of over ten thousand monthly consultations and access to the assistance service will be scheduled by the state regulation center.
