The “MS Health: More Health, Less Queues” project transforms the health scenario in 21 municipalities of Mato Grosso do Sul. With a focus on delivering effective, high-quality care, the project has made remarkable progress, providing essential medical and surgical services to many patients south of Mato-Grossenses.

The project, which aims to combat queues for medical procedures, has already covered a wide range of specialties, including general surgery, ophthalmology, vascular surgery, orthopedics, otolaryngology, urology and gynecology. Many patients have benefited from the surgical procedures, as they have access to treatments that alleviate their health conditions.

For Maria Angélica Benetasso, Supervisor of Strategic Management at SES (State Ministry of Health) and Coordinator of MS Health, the project is in line with the requirements of the population and is constantly expanding. “We are proud to see MS Saúde being implemented in so many municipalities. This week’s actions have already served places like Sidrolândia, Camapuã, Miranda, Bonito and Rio Brilhante, providing agile, quality and humane assistance.”

The project also enhances the performance of highly complex diagnostic tests. This phase will begin in the next few weeks, with the tests taking place mainly in the city of Campo Grande. Renowned hospitals, such as Hospital do Pênfigo and Santa Casa, are set to carry out tests such as transthoracic echocardiography and MRI, which contribute to more accurate diagnoses and effective treatments.

Participation in the project was expressive. In the July tally, 1402 preoperative consultations, attended by 960 patients, were recorded. Of these consultations, 240 patients received surgical indications and 159 surgeries have already been performed. However, a high number of absences (442) were noted, reinforcing the importance of updating the registration on the SUS card to ensure access to services.

By offering 136 types of surgical procedures and 74 types of diagnostic tests, the project seeks to positively transform public health in the state, ensuring comprehensive, high-quality care.

Through partnerships with health institutions and municipalities, the project is set to perform 15,000 elective surgeries in various specialties, in addition to conducting more than 42,500 diagnostic tests, including procedures such as magnetic resonance imaging, tomography, and endoscopy. State investments amount to R$45 million, in addition to federal resources.
