For more than 500 years, the Misericórdias have been providing social and health support in the community, always adapted to the needs of each time. With vast experience in health care, they have reference units in hospital care and, throughout the territory, in the area of long-term care and primary health care, thus ensuring continuity of care at local level.
In addition to the well-being of the people who come to their units, the Misericórdias promote a national strategy for the local and coordinated organisation of healthcare.
