Agape Medical Center

Agape Medical Center

Vargem Grande Paulista - San Paolo, Brazil

A young physician began The Agape Medical Center and an Economy of Communion business with her entire savings of $2,000.

She reminds us in many ways of the parable of the talents: ”Lord, you gave me 5 talents, here I have earned 5 more.“

The Center began with a gynecologist and a dentist using second hand tools with few patients and no resources other than good intuition – an intuition that bore many varieties of fruit.

Today, the Agape Medical Center has 13 medical specialists. It sees over 500 patients a month and has a registry of 6,500 patients. All its instruments and equipment are completely up to date and it offers preventive services and holistic care. The diagnostic group includes a lab and section for non–invasive procedures, such as the use of ultrasound. The attention the staff gives to promote the harmonious welfare of their patients and customers led them to start of a physical therapy department and of a homeopathic pharmacy.

The Agape Medical Center participates in scientific studies as part of a research and planning team on the impact of hepatitis in the local community for the Federal University of San Paulo.

The center’s staff performs diagnostic exams for the project and they disseminate the results of the research both to the scientific community and to the public. For some years, a gynecologist has applied her talents in this adventure and she and her family moved from a distant city so she could work at the Center.

She offers patient consultation and, above all, she promotes a culture of life by helping people recognize their responsibility to support the women in the community. She has never lacked patients and many lives have been welcomed and saved.
