Hospital Sao Luis of Caceres (MT) has started offering its services 100% through SUS, says government | Matthew Grosso

The government of Mato Grosso announced, in an additional edition of the Official Gazette on Monday (28), an administrative request from the Hospital of São Luiz, in Cáceres, 250 kilometers from Cuiaba. With this, the hospital will be managed by the State Department of Health (SES) and 100% serviced by SUS.

The unit, which until then had contracted with the State Department of Health (SES-MT), threatened to close its doors and did not comply with what was established by the Unified Health System (SUS).

The unit will act as an extension of Caceres Regional Hospital, with the services provided uninterrupted.

The measure is to avoid potential interruption of care for residents of the area, with regard to obstetrics and high-risk pregnant women, bearing in mind the news of the hospital’s imminent closure.

The state contracted Pró-Saúde, the company that operated the Hospital de São Luiz, to be a reference in outpatient care, general practice and hospitalization in general surgery, gynecology, clinical and surgical obstetrics, clinical pediatrics, pulmonology and intensive care (ICU) for adults and neonatology. .

The unit has 158 beds, 108 of which are SUS certified.

However, according to the decree, in 2021, the São Luiz Hospital carried out an average of 25% of what was agreed with the state, and was receiving the full value of the contract due to the current legislation.

The decree states that the unit received a difference of R$30 million between what was agreed and actually implemented by the hospital. However, the São Luiz Hospital administration threatened to close the doors and claimed that there were no transfers by the state.

It is important to note that the hospital operated as a charitable unit and also received funds from the State Fiscal Balance Fund (FEEF), in accordance with the November 2021 law.
