How a Hospital is Born – from Thought to Operation reflects the experience of Eng.ª Cecília Mendonça, who has worked in the hospital sector for almost 45 years and with whom S+A has had the privilege of collaborating on many of the hospital projects designed by the company.
The book is a photograph of all the moments that precede the construction of a healthcare complex, offering a perspective on the difficulty and complexity of thinking about a hospital. A challenge that requires a tremendous ability of anticipation to design a structure for the future that must keep pace with the accelerated changes and constant innovation.
It is also a testament to what is being done best in healthcare in our country, in an area close to S+A’s heart and where we have extensive experience with hospital projects. A legacy of Saraiva+Associados and Eng.ª Cecília Mendonça that fills a gap in the sector, hoping to awaken the curiosity of those who want to research, study and innovate to increase human capital in the field.
