A socially responsible hospital

Excellence, quality, empathy, humanity and commitment to the environment are some of the values that define Vall d'Hebron University Hospital. To this end, we work to gain recognition and consolidate our position as a centre of reference with an ethical, sustainable and socially responsible management model.

At Vall d'Hebron, corporate social responsibility (CSR) is linked to the institution's culture and integrated into the management model of all our departments. This means that all our professionals are actively involved in, and contribute to, its implementation through the Hospital's new strategic lines.

Our aim is to be at the cutting edge of improving the health and quality of life of the population. Which is why our CSR is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) approved by the United Nations General Assembly to address the major challenges facing us as a society. In the case of the Hospital, we work towards the well-being, equality and dignity of people, placing, front and centre, the heart of our mission: health.

Thus we focus our activity on the following axes:

Ethics and good governance

We work using a governance model based on transparency and commitment to create an ethically and socially responsible organization, which can be seen in the management and values transmitted by the institution. How do we do it? By encouraging transparency, publicizing these values, promoting a socially responsible culture and obtaining CSR certifications as an institution.
