The Hospital do Coração (HCor) "heart hospital", in the Brazilian city of São Paulo, has reopened following a R$25m (US$13.5m) two-year refurbishment programme. The 214-bed hospital includes 10 "high-complexity surgery" operating rooms, laboratories and haemodynamic units. As well as cardiology, the hospital specialises in orthopaedic surgery and gastroenterology, among other areas. Citing the health ministry, HCor claims to be one of a network of five "hospitals of excellence" in the city, and provides care on behalf of both private and state providers. Further expansion of the HCor hospital complex, featuring the addition of another 13,000 square-metre building, is due to be completed in 2011.
