Portuguese servicemen could convalesce in this structure before returning to combat. Through a qualitative and quantitative analysis of a set of archival sources, this article seeks to known more in detail the existence of this hospital, from its origins until its closure, including the personnel that worked there and the men that were admitted. It will be evaluated the impact of this hospital in the overall healthcare structures during the Great War.
