A socially responsible hospital

Trust, professionalism, quality, humanity, innovation, transparency and social commitment are some of the values that define Vall d'Hebron University Hospital. With our values always present, we work to be recognised and to consolidate ourselves as a reference centre with an ethical, sustainable and socially responsible management model, placing our raison d'être at the centre: health.

At Vall d'Hebron, corporate social responsibility (CSR) is linked to the culture of the institution, so that it is integrated into the management model in a transversal way. This means that all professionals play an active part and contribute to its development through the nine strategic lines of the Hospital.

The CSR Operating Committee is responsible for promoting the CSR culture and overseeing its proper implementation at the Hospital, ensuring compliance with the CSR Functional Plan.

The CSR Functional Plan is structured into 7 axes, which form the framework for all the action plans we carry out in this area. These axes are also aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) on which the 2030 Agenda approved by the United Nations General Assembly is based to address the major challenges we face as a society.

These are the axes of the CSR Functional Plan and the SDGs to which they contribute:
