The GRAACC was born in 1991, thanks to initiative of Dr. Sergio Petrilli, head of Oncology Department of Pediatrics, School of Medicine, engineer volunteer Jacinto Antonio Guidolin and Mrs. Lea Della Casa Mingione, volunteer at the Cancer Hospital.
The first step was to transfer the Division of Pediatric Oncology, Hospital Sao Paulo for a house, which became known as the "house". Younger patients were seen at that location, within the concept of day hospital where they received medical attention and care and returned to their homes.
Based on university partnership / company / community GRAACC awakened in companies and institutions with a broad vision social confidence and interest in participating in the construction of the Pediatric Oncology Institute - IOP, the hospital's GRAACC.
In May 1998, that dream becomes reality. It built a modern hospital nine floors and two basements, at 4,200 square meters, specializing in the care of children and adolescents with cancer.
Today, the hospital is managed and administered by GRAACC and medical care, teaching and research are conducted in partnership with the Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP / EPM).
Since 2008, volunteering to GRAACC is certified with ISO 9001.
