The Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein‏ (English: Albert Einstein Israelite Hospital) is a Brazilian hospital, located in the Morumbi district, on the south side of São Paulo.

History[edit]

A group jewish community members in São Paulo founded the Sociedade Beneficente Israelita Brasileira Albert Einstein (SBIBAE) in 1955.[1] The SBIBAE began construction of the Albert Einstein Hospital three years later on 14 September 1958 on land donated by Ema Gordon Klabin.[2] The hospital was inaugurated on 28 July 1971.[1]

In 1999, it was the first health institution outside the United States to be certified by the Joint Commission International.[citation needed]

Ophthalmologist Dr. Cláudio Lottenberg began as president of Albert Einstein in December 2001.[3]

Care and Programs[edit]

It is one of the most well-known health units in Brazil due to the quality of care, medical equipment and expertise at its disposal to address the main types of pathologies. It has a social assistance program in the Paraisópolis favela, near the hospital.

The Hospital also hosts a nursing school and will in the future have also a medical school.
