The history of the SVPH starts in 1930, when the Daughters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul founded the Teaching Hospital, a health area focused in providing medical assistance to the Religious Sisters and training the novices in nursing area. In 1968, after the main big building was renovated, the Teaching Hospital was renamed The Saint Vincent de Paul Hospital and was opened to attend the residents of that neighbourhood. Some years later, the demand for services grew and the Sisters decided to build a new, larger and more modern building. This space was opened in 1980.

In 2008 the SVPH won for the first time the international accreditation, granted by International Joint Commission, the world’s largest quality assurance agency in healthcare. The Hospital was reaccredited three other times: in 2012, 2015, and most recently in 2018.
Health Pastoral Care
Besides taking care of the Health, the Hospital also cares for the spiritual well-being of the patients. To welcome and comfort the patients and their families, the Health Pastoral Care staff carries permanent visits to the beds, in order to interact with everyone by talking, listening and praying.
