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.
The General Hospital Accident and Emergency Department handles emergencies for all medical and surgical specialties for adults, regardless of the severity. We have doctors specialising in internal medicine and intensive care medicine, oncology and haematology, and surgical specialties, as well as doctors on call 24 hours a day.
The General Hospital Accident and Emergency department is made up of:
We also have an Observation Ward with 55 beds that has been converted into a hospitalisation unit where patients who have been treated wait until they are transferred to a different hospitalisation ward or another centre. There is also a Short-Term Unit with 16 beds for short-stay patients who are to be hospitalised for less than 4 days.
Accident and Emergency provides care in cases of Code Stroke, Code Heart Attack and Code Sepsis, among others, in coordination with the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) to provide immediate care in case of emergencies. We also work in close collaboration with Transplant Coordination.
Vall d'Hebron University Hospital is one of the most active centres in organ and tissue donation, and that is why it is home to multidisciplinary teams who guarantee a high level of health protection, both for the donor and the recipient. One final highlight of the A&E portfolio at the General Hospital is the Diagnostic Imaging Department, with CT scan and ultrasounds available 24 hours a day, and interventional angiology.
