Instituto Central - HC/ICHC

Inaugurado a 19 de abril de 1944, o Instituto Central (ICHC) é o hospital base do Sistema Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo - Hospital das Clínicas (FMUSP-HC). Ocupa posição de destaque como instituição de assistência, ensino e pesquisa, sendo um avançado centro de excelência e referência no desenvolvimento de tecnologia voltada para a saúde.

O atendimento é realizado por equipes multidisciplinares compostas por profissionais das mais diversas áreas como enfermagem, fisioterapia, nutrição, serviço social, fonoaudiologia e farmácia. É composto pelo Instituto Central e Prédio dos Ambulatórios, concentrando a grande maioria das especialidades médicas do Sistema HC: Clínica Cirúrgica (Geral, Aparelho Digestivo, Fígado, Cabeça e Pescoço, Torácica, Vascular), Clínica Médica (Hematologia, Endocrinologia, Pneumologia, Nefrologia, Alergia e Imunologia, Reumatologia, Gastroenterologia, Geriatria), Neurologia Clínica e Cirúrgica, Urologia, Ginecologia, Obstetrícia, Dermatologia, Plástica e Queimaduras, Oftalmologia, Otorrinolaringologia, Endoscopia, Moléstias Infecciosas e Parasitarias entre outras. Além das clínicas médicas e cirúrgicas, conta com o pronto-socorro central, que atende diariamente a emergências de alta complexidade e pessoas vindas das diferentes partes da capital, interior e outros estados, disponibilizando tratamento a pacientes ambulatoriais e áreas de apoio diagnóstico e terapêutico. Comporta a Divisão de Nutrição e Dietética: que é a primeira unidade de nutrição em hospital público do Brasil a receber a certificação NBR ISO 9001.

O Instituto Central também oferece serviços diferenciados, como o da Farmácia do ICHC, no Prédio dos Ambulatórios do ICHC (PAMB), na qual são fabricados os medicamentos que não despertam interesse comercial e, por essa razão, não existem no mercado, e também são preparadas diluições e dosagens diferentes das disponíveis no mercado, segundo a necessidade do paciente, ou composições diferentes das tradicionais.
