In 1921, a community of Syrian-Lebanese ladies decided to return the welcome reception they received in Brazil and mobilized to found the Syrian-Lebanese Hospital in São Paulo, a hospital that could meet medical excellence and warmth in caring for each patient.

Opening another chapter in its history, coinciding with its 90th anniversary, the new expansion project of the Syrian-Lebanese Hospital will double its capacity for patient care, creating new treatment units, surgical centers, sections, and increasing the number of beds from 300 into a total of 650.

The Envac system installed in this hospital will manage the daily collection of 8.5 tons of laundry and 8 tons of general waste from its more than 950 beds.

110 discharge points spread over 16 floors will collect waste and clothing that will flow through the near of 790 m pipeline until the underground terminal station.

The chutes are already in place (March 2015) and the terminal is about to start its assembly. The system should start its operation in the first quarter of 2016.
