    I was born there!

    Actually it's a Hospital, the title Casa de Saúde is still used for tradition.

    I'd use Santa Lúcia Hospital.

    And how would you translate this part of official heading of birth certificate?

    Comarca Da Capitial - Fregusias: Lagoa E Gavea
    Hmmm... maybe:

    Comarca da Capital: Court District of the Capital (city of Rio de Janeiro)

    Freguesia: a subdivision of the Court District, could be Parish (?). Lagoa & Gávea are two boroughs of the city of Rio de Janeiro which form the said "freguesia".

    In other words, the capital (city of Rio de Janeiro) is a court district divided into several freguesias (parishes, maybe) and one of these comprises the boroughs of Lagoa & Gávea.
