Since 2012, Barretos Cancer Hospital has had a unit in Porto Velho, in a temporary area of 1,200 m2 granted by the State Government in Base Hospital. This unit was constructed because 90% of the oncological cases in the state of Rondônia were being sent to Barretos. In the unit patients from Rondônia, Amazonas, Acre, Minas Gerais, Amapá and Mato Grosso as well as the indigenous communities and patients from Bolivia are being assisted.
