Private Ambulance Service and Emergencies at Home
For other emergencies you must sign up (in advance) for a private emergency service. These services are more than an ambulance, they provide on the spot emergency care, such as stitches for cuts and IVs. If they cannot adequately treat the problem they will transport you to the hospital.
There are a number of companies offering private emergency services, such as:
Resgate Medico 3200-1900.
Also, many of the health insurance companies offer their own services.
Emergency Rooms (Pronto Socorro)
There are Pronto Socorros located around town but it is good to identify the one nearest you and identify the best route to get there from your home.
Be aware that quite a lot of the hospitals in Curitiba are specialized (maternity, burns, etc.), and many do not have emergency rooms.
