Vicaima solutions at the recently inaugurated Hospital Internacional dos Açores


The first private hospital in the Autonomous Region of the Azores focuses on the inclusion of specialised solutions by Vicaima

The Hospital Internacional dos Açores, officially opened on 8th March, in Lagoa, on the island of São Miguel, had the participation of Vicaima in its project, with the inclusion of several choices from the Hospital Range throughout the hospital. Portaro® solutions by Vicaima - one of the major European players in the design and production of doors, frames, wardrobes and panels - were fitted in the many corridors, as well as in the access to consulting rooms, wards, individual rooms and common areas, facilitating mobility and assuring security in the circulation between the spaces for professionals and users.

Within the entire specialised range available at Vicaima, the healthcare unit included the installation of a number of Portaro® options, namely, Interior, Double action, Fire Door 30 and 60 minutes and anti-radiation. These technical performance solutions meet the maximum security demands of a hospital, granting fire resistance and radiation protection in places with these demands. All the technical solutions implemented in the project are certified by international accredited entities, offering maximum security and reliability in their performance.

The choice of finishes focuses on the Dekordor® HD and SHD White options, intended to create a calm environment in all spaces, thereby enhancing the hospital's approach to providing tranquility and protection to all its users and team members. Known for their high level of physical and chemical resistance, these finishes are ideal for places subject to intensive use, offering great durability together with a sober and clean design, which intensifies the hospital's luminous and welcoming ambiance.

The technical specificity of this equipment, as well as its aesthetic primacy highlight Vicaima's commitment and expertise in the various service sectors, particularly in the medical sector, marking its presence in yet another major investment project in Portuguese healthcare. In addition to having a regular presence in reference housing and hotel projects, the services sector has also been one that has deserved greater guarantee by the company, based on its technical and design expertise, which makes its products applicable to any context.

It is worth noting that the Hospital Internacional dos Açores has a differentiated offer in over 40 specialties, 5 surgery rooms, 96 beds and state-of-the-art equipment, representing an investment of 40 million euros.
