Mini Hybrid Hospital Joinville Brazil

CIES Global in Atlanta is completing the integration phase into currently existing public health systems through contract negotiation to provide PMP services to Medicaid and Medicare recipients that currently do not have access to county services.  This lack of access may be transportation related, lack of public services for PMP services or health illiteracy to name a few commonly encountered.    CIES leadership is constantly evaluating the community need, current capacity and access of several common outpatient diagnostic test and treatments.

The objective of such community needs assessment is as a feasibility study for possible inclusion of advanced CIES “Hybrid Day Hospital” models as currently operating in Brazil and using multiple container configurations. (see photos)

 The target population again is primarily those without access or with limited access to these services through the public system doe to capacity constraints and lack of culturally and linguistically appropriateness of services.  Sites will be coordinated with local State and County public health stakeholders and/or private hospital systems on contractual basis.

The CIES- Brazil experience identified 5 diagnostic and testing specialties that are in greatest demand that are to be reproduced in CIES Global including:

With the arrival of CIES Global to Atlanta, Dr. Kikawa’s dream,  initiated over 10 years ago, has taken root in the US and promises to take his innovative new business model for healthcare delivery to all economic, cultural and geographic areas of the world. 

Embedded within this dream is the organizational philosophy and culture of our “DNA of Love” that permeates our value-proposition for healthcare delivery.   Lastly, we aim to translate the CIES Global motto “treat, educate, prevent” into a lifelong commitment of improving your health and wellbeing and that of your family and your community by placing control and choice of all health care decisions in your hands.
