Since the very beginning of its construction, Usiminas has given priority to taking care of people. At the time of its installation, the Company transformed a quiet village into a city with the necessary infrastructure to receive the thousands of people that now form Usiminas. Over the years, at a time when the concept of sustainability was still in its infancy, the Company strengthened its management with focus on people.
Health and EducationUsiminas established the São Francisco Xavier Foundation, in 1969, a philanthropic entity responsible for the management of projects focused on health and education. Today, there are nearly six thousand employees, working in seven units and clinics that offer services to employees and the community in six states in Brazil. Among its business units we can mention Marcio Cunha Hospital (HMC), Cubatão Hospital, o Integrated Dentistry Center (COI), VITA – Occupational Health Solutions, o Carlos Chagas Municipal Hospital (HMCC) and the complementary health operator “Usisaúde”.
