Mário Penna Institute wins 50 years of history Memorial

Instituto Mário Penna celebrated its 50th anniversary on June 28, with special celebrations due to the pandemic. One of them was the launch of the Mário Penna Memorial, a space inside the Hospital Luxemburgo, where the history of the institution is told on the walls and interactive totems for those who pass by.

The launch of the Memorial took place on June 26 with the presence of board members, advisors and representatives of those who were part of the IMP. There were few people in person, following all the safety protocols required by health agencies. On the occasion, guests also watched the institutional video produced by ECA (Space of Culture and Art), especially for 50 years.

The history of Instituto Mário Penna – named after the tireless doctor who became a pioneer in cancer treatment in Minas Gerais – begins in 1969, when Célia Janotti had the brilliant idea of helping cancer patients who were in a shelter located in Santa Efigênia district. She was the inspiration for Mário Penna’s work in the fight against cancer.

In 1971, the Associação dos Amigos do Hospital Mário Penna was created. The group has achieved several improvements for patients – the main one being the devolution of humanity in the treatment of the terminally ill.

Today, 50 years after the beginning of this trajectory, the Mário Penna Institute continues in the fight against cancer. With the help of collaborators, members of the clinical staff, volunteers, donors and partners, this story, which began with the careful eye of those who care for others, will continue to be written for many years.

“The Memorial is an extremely important space where everything that has been done at the institution until today is registered. We have come a long way over these years and currently serve patients from more than 600 municipalities in Minas Gerais. Today we are writing this story, which will forever remain embedded in this space at the Hospital Luxemburgo”; emphasizes Marco Antônio.

A story of hope: Instituto Mário Penna celebrates 50 years

Instituto Mário Penna celebrates 50 years on June 28, with an impeccable trajectory in the relentless pursuit of saving lives and curing cancer patients. Comprised of the Mário Penna and Luxemburgo Hospitals, Beatriz Ferraz Support House, Education and Research Center (NEP) and Oncology Specialties Center (NEO), the institution performs more than 260,000 consultations per year, coming from more than 600 municipalities in Minas Gerais. The theme of this commemoration could not be different: “A story of hope”.

Classified by the Ministry of Health as a High Complexity Oncology Care Center (CACON), in 2020 the Institute also carried out 272 thousand radiotherapy applications, 34 thousand chemotherapy sessions, 55 bone marrow transplants and almost 11 thousand surgeries. In addition, it is at the forefront in the fight against Covid-19 and, for this, infirmary beds and other new ICU beds were created, aimed at treating patients with the disease.

“The moment today is one of thanks, especially to our employees, who are essential for every detail of this success story. I must also thank everyone who donates, our partners and those who, in some way, contribute to the growth of the Mário Penna Institute. We will always be available to society to better serve our patients”; highlights Marco Antônio Viana Leite, CEO of Instituto Mário Penna.

celebration

Despite the difficulties faced throughout the legacy of the Instituto Mário Penna, the moment deserves to be celebrated because the achievements have always prevailed. Due to the pandemic, the date will be celebrated without parties, but it will not go unnoticed. We will launch the “Memorial Mário Penna”, a space inside the Hospital Luxemburgo, where the history of the institution will be told on the walls and interactive totems for those who pass by. ECA (Culture and Art Space) produced a special commemorative video for the date, which will be posted on social media.

The “congratulations” will be at 5 pm, directly from the Mineirão Stadium, with a live show by singer Flávio Venturini , also produced in partnership with ECA. Everything will be broadcast live on Instituto Mário Penna’s social networks (Instagram and YouTube).

50 years of IMP is celebrated with well lived and new flag wing

Instituto Mário Penna closed the 50th anniversary celebrations with a golden key. The 28th of June began with the raising of the flags of Brazil, Minas Gerais and Instituto Mário Penna, at the entrance of the PA Agreement. To represent all employees, the flags went up to the sound of the National Anthem by Marco Antônio Viana Leite, CEO of IMP; Juarez Rodrigues, Administrative Assistant; and Celma Fátima Vieira, Coordinator of SAME.

Next, Marco Antônio went to all sectors distributing “well-lived” cookies to employees. Lunch for patients and companions was also special. The CEO made a point of passing by the beds delivering the Italian straw made with all the affection by the Nutrition and Dietetics Service (SND) team as a souvenir of the institution’s 50th anniversary.

And do not stop there. Congratulations went straight to the Mineirão Stadium at a beautiful sunset, with a live show by singer Flávio Venturini. Everything was broadcast live on the institution’s Instagram and Youtube and, whoever wants to review it, just access these social networks.

“The moment today is one of thanks, especially to our employees, who are essential for every detail of this success story. I must also thank everyone who donates, partners and those who, in some way, contribute to the growth of Instituto Mário Penna”; emphasizes Marco Antônio Viana Leite.
