    Smile What is the structure of this sentence? tks.

    "Studies at a Brazilian hospital dedicated to treating female victims of violence, the Perola Byington in Sao Paulo, indicated that more than 40 percent of the cases involved children." ----cnn

    Does "the Perola Byington in Sao Paulo" mean the hospital? It seems to be weird to me.

    Yes:
    Hospital Pérola Byington, São Paulo | Emporis.com

    It would be better to express that as "Studies at a BRazilian hosital ......, The Perola Byinton in Sao Paulo, ..."
