PEREIRA, Geraldo. French lines in Recife architecture: Pedro II Hospital. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2011, vol.18, suppl.1, pp. 303-310. ISSN 0104-5970. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-59702011000500017.
Pedro II Hospital was inaugurated in Recife in 1861 and for several decades was the leading center of its kind in the state of Pernambuco and in Northeast Brazil. Its construction followed French design, as developed by physician Jacques-René Tenon, that is, the so-called pavilion style that was the norm in Pernambuco and in Brazil for many years. After being nearly abandoned in 1982, the hospital was reformed shortly thereafter and reopened its doors to offer a variety of services, thanks to negotiations between the Instituto de Medicina Integral Professor Fernando Figueira and the Archdiocese of Olinda and Recife.
