Considered as a reference in treating leprosy in Latin America, São Julião Hospital in Campo Grande – MS is arranged in a modern space, with well-equipped rooms which offers the best and most updated treatment, prevention and restitution of leprosy and others dermatological manifestations.   

 

 

 

 

 

São Julião also contributes to big clinical demands, pointing out its famous work in ophthalmology. It has the acknowledgement of the Ministry of Health for the support to SUS patients, being awarded as a hospital in the Mid-West region with a high quality standard.

 

 

São Julião Hospital also presents a good quality standard in helping everyone who goes there searching for a treatment due to its solidarity and respect for life, thanks to a countless workers and dedication of its staff and medical professionals.

 

 

 

 

 

 

São Julião Hospital started its project based on a Federal Government Program, which in 1941 built 36 asylum-colonies to isolate patients suffering from leprosy. At that time, fear and prejudice were predominant. The disease, extremely stigmatized, made them away from their relatives’ intimacy.

 

 

 

In its first years, São Julião was left aside. The patients’ care was pitiful and the building conditions were regrettable, as a storehouse of sick people, presenting a desolated picture.

 

 

From 1969, Italian volunteers from Mato Grosso Expedition, started to work together and took part into social and physical projects all over the hospital. It was created then an association of benefactors to run and keep the activities in the hospital.
