Message from the CEO

At José de Mello Saúde, we see ourselves as a reference company in the Portuguese healthcare industry, and as a partner for the country’s development.

Every day, more than seven thousand highly qualified employees work to provide healthcare that meets the highest medical and ethical criteria. Our Values - Respect for the Person's Dignity and Wellbeing, Human Development, and Competence and Innovation – constitute our best inheritance.

Our built from scratch facilities have the latest equipment and excellent comfort conditions. Here, we have outstanding professionals working to ensure demanding quality and patient’s safety standards.

José de Mello Saúde currently manages 7 hospitals (2 of them are public-private partnerships) and 6 clinics.

In collaboration with universities and scientific institutions we have developed teaching, training and research programmes, with a view to achieving the permanent upgrading and innovation of our professionals and of the scientific and medical community.

We promote environmental and social sustainability, and social responsibility policies, and we develop a management system that is based on efficiency, setting forth paradigms in the healthcare industry.

For high quality services provision, for our significant investments and for investing in the qualification of our human resources, we are an active partner in the country’s development.

The Portuguese have been relying on us for 70 years and maintaining this relationship of trust is our main challenge.
