We are the combination of four hospitals: the General Hospital, the Children’s Hospital, the Women’s Hospital and the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital. We are part of the Vall d’Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus: a world-leading health park where healthcare plays a crucial role.
Below we will list the departments and units that form part of Vall d’Hebron Hospital and the main diseases that we treat. We will also make recommendations based on advice backed up by scientific evidence that has been shown to be effective in guaranteeing well-being and quality of life.
We will guide you from your first visit to the centre, allowing you to find all the departments and make the most of our facilities. Whatever the reason for your visit, we will explain how to get about the hospital.
At the Foetal Medicine Unit of Vall d'Hebron University Hospital, we offer highly specialised care for the treatment of various diseases, for both high-risk mothers and foetuses. Our extensive experience makes us a reference centre in Catalonia, Spain and neighbouring countries. Since 2015, we are the only centre in Spain that is able to offer all intrauterine surgery possibilities.
At our Unit, we use the most advanced technology, so we can offer highly sophisticated examinations and treatments both for the foetus, which becomes a patient before birth, and the mother, who presents very high risk problems, for herself and for the foetus or baby.
Quality, personalised care during gestation requires different highly specialised units that help in possible complications of the mother and the foetus. For mothers, we have an Intensive Care Medicine and Intermediate Obstetric Care Department; for babies, we offer families the most advanced procedures and technology in diagnosis, management and intrauterine neonatal treatments.
Some of the diseases we deal with are:
The Department set up the Maternal and Foetal Medicine Research Group, recognised by both Catalan and Spanish research agencies, which works at the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute and promotes basic and applied research, and the host laboratories at Vall d'Hebron.
The Maternal and Foetal Medicine Research Group is part of the Division of Obstetrics, Paediatrics and Genetics, and is made up of a network of interdisciplinary researchers in basic and clinical sciences with a shared focus of interest.
Our state-level centre enjoys European recognition for the training of EBCOG residents EBCOG (European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology) and the EAPM (European Association of Perinatal Medicine). We are also the first centre accredited for the training of Fellows2 in gynaecological oncology and breast pathologies by the ESGO (European Society of Gynaecological Oncology).
