Three Concerts a Week Are Part of This Brazilian Hospital’s Treatment

Brazil’s Hospital SÀ­rio-Libanês released Tuesday, July 25, a novelty in the institutions program for the humanization of treatment of patients.

It is the project "Música em Cena" (Music on Scene), which includes musical presentations in the hospital three times a week. The objective of the program is to promote peacefulness and comfort to patients, those accompanying them and doctors.

"The patient’s admittance to hospital is always tense, and the idea is to relax it," stated the hospital’s housekeeping superintendent, Márcia Caselato.

The project was opened by Grupo A Três, which plays Popular Brazilian Music, and, according to Márcia, took many people to the hall in front of Solarium restaurant, in the hospital.

The organization already has a musical program, but presentations were only on Thursdays. Now they will take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays as well as Thursdays and will have a fixed annual calendar.

Another novelty of the project is that on the days of the presentation, the audience is invited to the presentation by a guest actor who is disguised and painted and visits different areas of the hospital calling the patients.

In a creative manner, the actor informs the patients about the project and the attraction. Apart from that, the hospital also promotes the attractions in the restaurants and elevators, which also attracts the attention of visitors. "This way we are going to promote music as a sign of caring," added Márcia.

According to her, the objective of the patient humanization program at the hospital is also to stimulate people to leave their rooms. In the second half of the year, the hospital is also going to offer a program for production of canvas paintings.

"The patients will be able to paint to distract themselves," stated Márcia.

Yesterday, July 26, the hospital presented pianist Sylvio Maluf, who will played modern music. Today, July 27, pianist Halley Flamarion will play, presenting classical music at 4 pm. The program is also delivered to the patient’s bedroom.

The Syrian-Lebanese hospital was established 85 years ago by the Women’s Beneficent Society, all of whom were of Syrian and Lebanese descent. Today the hospital’s installations cover an area of 54,000 square meters; it has 40 different types of specialization, 300 beds and 2,700 employees. The institution counts on 1,200 doctors.
