Incor, the heart institute of the University of Sao Paulo, which prides itself as the most modern hospital in Brazil, is planning to invest further in its facilities. The announcement at the Hospitalar trade fair, held in Sao Paulo on June 5-8, follows the opening in August 2000 of a US$52 million new wing. The new 45,000 square metre unit, which includes seven surgery units, was created in a bid to increase patient capacity by up to 60%. It also houses improved facilities for research in such areas as molecular and vascular biology, biomedical engineering, immunology, pneumology and polysomnography.
