Hospital Alemão Oswaldo Cruz Introduction


With over a century of existence, the Oswaldo Cruz German Hospital was founded in 1897 and holds a position as one of the most recognized healthcare institutions in Brazil.

A group of German-speaking immigrants, whose dream had been to offer health services to both members of German colony and to the general public as a way to reciprocate the welcome they had received in the country, managed to enable the construction of the building, which, today, characterizes part of the Hospital complex in the district of Paraíso, in São Paulo.

Thanks to the determination of these people, there was a large number of fundraising campaigns, which enabled the purchase of the land close to Avenida Paulista in 1905. Construction was delayed due to World War I and the Hospital was finally handed over to the community in 1923. The following year, during the Tenente Revolts, the Hospital was bombed and its facilities were damaged. Once again, the persistence of the Hospital's creators was responsible for its recovery that followed, enabling the Institution to continue providing valuable services to the community to this day.
