IGHS is an integrated Health Group based in Coimbra, Portugal.Internationally recognized for its University, which is part of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites and considered one of the oldest Medical Teaching Institutions in the world, the city of Coimbra is nowadays one of the strongest and most developed health clusters in Europe, integrating in an unique way all the sources of knowledge and know-how necessary for the development of a singular and distinctive Healthcare Group.In this highly demanding and developed academic environment, IGHS was able to create an unique and innovative Business Model, which integrates all the skills and know-how necessary for the conception, development and management of Hospitals and Healthcare projects, allowing its partners to have the comfort of having one single entity responsible for the complete delivery and deployment of turn-key solutions in the Healthcare and hospital business, as well as for its management and day to day operations administration and control.
IGHS combs the global market for the best solutions to our projects and customers’ needs, following previously established criteria and thus guaranteeing the best choice.The health sector’s complexity and exigency level compel us to develop partnerships with the best and most distinctive stakeholders, such as suppliers/vendors, information technology companies, universities and other academic/vocational institutions, hospitals, and research & development centres.

“The clinical management model offered by IGHS is an added value for any Hospital or Group of Hospitals. Nowadays, it is inconceivable for an organization to have the most varied competences and capacities in all medical fields and specialties. As such, IGHS’s integrating process represents a certainty of success and should serve as an inspiration to modern hospital projects.”
“Ensuring Total Dedication
In a medical perspective, it’s with a double sense of pride and responsibility that I think IGHS should be seen as an innovative Group, in which the remarkable success already achieved is reﬂected in the growing dimension of the Group’s units and in the confidence of those who choose us, showing trust in our efficiency.

“Based on my vast experience in the elaboration of feasibility studies for hospitals as well as in management, I see a continuous increase in the complexity of Hospitals such that if one is to successfully maximize their management and the best services, it is essential to put together highly qualified and specialized teams who can, together, do what individually no one can.”
