Our history

Founded in 1998, Lusíadas Saúde (at the time, called HPP Saúde) has always set itself apart through an innovative vision, coupled with a strong spirit of continual improvement, excellence, and rigor, as well as through sustained growth and a widening of the service network across Portugal.

Two of the company’s great markers were the opening, in 2008, of Hospital Lusíadas Lisboa and Hospital Lusíadas Porto. And management of Hospital de Cascais (public-private partnership), since 2009.​

In 2013, this obligation and focus on excellence and quality of health services gained new force when the company was acquired by Amil, which is part of the US company UnitedHealth Group.

In 2014, in a brand modernization initiative, HPP group was rebranded and renamed Grupo Lusíadas Saúde.
