Foz do Iguaçu, the Brazilian city on the border of the Iguaçu Falls, has plans to develop a health public private partnership (PPP) project.
The project would involve the operation of the Germano Lauck municipal hospital, the emergency department (UPA in Brazilian) of Morumbi, the UPA João Samek, the emergency medical service (SAMU in Brazilian) and the construction and operation for the UPA Porte I of Porto Meira.
Several companies registered their interest in executing the feasibility studies published by the municipality and several days ago there was a public audience to present the project to interested parties.
Foz do Iguaçu is the 7th largest city in the state of Paraná. The city's population is approximately 265,000 inhabitants. It is located about 650 km west of the capital of the state, Curitiba.
In mid 2015 the Municipality of Contagem, located in Minas Gerais, began works to carry out feasibility studies for two possible PPP projects in the areas of education and health. The health PPP project would involve the management, modernization, operation and maintenance of Contagem's health system.
