The governor of Amazonas created a floating hospital to ensure outpatient and emergency Anamã the population, one of the Amazonian municipalities affected by flooding rivers. Since last week, the State Department of Health (Susam) transferred the hospital structure used in the Joint Unit Anamã for a ferry, which will be anchored in the port city by the receding waters, expected for the month of July. The Joint Unit, which was flooded, will be closed during this period.

According to the secretary of state for health, Rosemary Wilson, all services will be held at a floating hospital, without any detriment to the population. Assistance will be offered the same county hospital.

Rosemary pointed out that there was strengthening in the stock of medicines and that all necessary equipment are already in operation in the unit. The care teams are also the same and the work will not interrupt any guarantees.

In the floating hospital will perform the urgent and emergency care for low and medium complexity, such as minor surgery and obstetrics, in addition to medical appointments. The unit will serve both the population and the headquarters of the rural communities of the municipality.

The secretary explained that the installation of the hospital on a ferry is the most appropriate alternative and fast to ensure that local residents are not left without health care during the flood. The determination of the Governor Omar Aziz was that they were all taken steps to minimize the effects of the flood to the people affected in this period.

The floating hospital docked in the port city, in front of the Mixed Unit of the municipality, and will remain mounted for medical care for approximately two months. After this period, the situation of the hospital should be standardized.
