RibeirãoShopping inaugurated its 9th expansion on Wednesday, August 9th: a modern Medical Center with more than 30 clinics, a day hospital, an imaging center, a clinical analysis laboratory, an auditorium, a coffee shop and a study center, introducing an innovative health services concept. The complex brings together a number of medical specialties, cutting-edge technology, comfort and ease for patients. The total investment in the expansion is estimated at R$ 100 million, of which R$ 36 million in this stage from Multiplan, the owner of the shopping center; the remainder comes from the clinics themselves in construction enhancements and equipment purchases.

Launched in two commercial stages, in June and November of last year, all of the Medical Center's space in its first stage was leased, totaling 4,200 square meters of GLA (Gross Leasable Area). Most of the space in the second phase, some 2,000 square meters of GLA, has already been leased or is currently under negotiation.

"We are inaugurating a successful, daring, diversified health complex that will surely surprise our entire region, not only by the mix of specialties and level of the professionals who will work there, but also due to the standard of care, the technological resources made available and the convenience and safety offered by being located in a multipurpose center," says Felix Diez, superintendent of RibeirãoShopping.

The Medical Center offers clinics in neurology, vascular surgery, an imaging center, pediatric first aid and general practice, orthopedics, gastro and proctology, urology, dentistry, spinal and pain clinic, dermatology, plastic surgery, human reproduction, gynecology, ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology and hearing aids, as well as clinical analysis laboratory services, anesthesiology and a day hospital, enabling the patient to resolve everything in one place, comfortably and with great practicality.

The expansion occupies an area facing Avenida Presidente Vargas. It has a coffee shop and a modular auditorium with capacity for up to 150 people. It is fully integrated with the RibeirãoShopping mall through two escalator systems, elevators and glassed-in structures. In addition, there is valet parking, almost 4,000 parking spaces, security and facilitated patient scheduling. The general structure of the Medical Center will be open Monday to Saturday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., and within this timeframe each clinic or operation will establish its own opening hours.

The Medical Center project was one of the winners of the XIII Corporate Architecture Award, one of the most important in Latin America, in the "Health - Health Buildings" category. About 500 professionals, including 130 physicians, will work in the Center when it operates at full capacity.

Study Center

The RibeirãoShopping Medical Center will have a novel installation focused on knowledge and information exchanges: the Advanced Diagnostic Research and Studies Center (CAPED). The project is still under development and aims to establish exchanges with other health reference centers in Brazil and abroad. Through imaging and connectivity resources, CAPED should become a tool to support physicians in finding and exchanging information and analyzing diagnoses and treatments, also featuring other activities such as courses, lectures, transmission of surgeries and events in the auditorium.
