About HSC Blumenau

HSC Blumenau was born of a big dream. A dream that came true in collaboration with the people from Blumenau. Despite some adversities along the way, on June 27th, 1920, the Lutheran Community inaugurated the 50-bed hospital with one ward for men, and another one for women. German deaconesses were responsible for patient care.

Nowadays, HSC Blumenau is a 21,000m² hospital with 152 beds, including 20 Adult ICU beds, 10 Neonatal and Pediatric ICU beds, 18 Mental Health Clinic beds, 6 operating rooms, and 15 en-suite rooms, including a master en-suite.

Altogether we have around 1,000 employees (40% are nursing staff). HSC Blumenau also has 400 physicians who work in 46 specialties. On a monthly average, 3,500 Urgent Care consultations and 750 inpatient admissions are performed. In addition, around 600 surgeries are performed as well.

Social Responsability

Take care of people. This is our business. That is what moves us. We know that in order to evolve in a sustainable way, it is necessary, beyond internal bases, to join efforts, mobilizing governments, the private sector and civil society. And that is our commitment.

As we open ourselves to dialogue, we are looking beyond the walls of our company. We work not only on the material themes of our business, but also on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which means we are committed to the United Nations (UN) 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Over the past few years, we have continued to act on many fronts, and from a culture of dialogue and active listening, we have evolved in both what we do and how we do it. Sustainability and growth are goals that go together, and this is the path we are following.
