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 Psychiatry Department offers high quality clinical care to patients with mental health problems and addictions. We are also responsible for a significant amount of teaching linked to the Autonomous University of Barcelona, in addition to highly competitive research programmes at the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute.
At the Psychiatry Department, our mission is to serve as the reference health care resource in the Barcelona Nord healthcare district for people with mental health problems and addictions. We offer a comprehensive service that is both effective and efficient, based on the professional quality of our staff, our modern facilities and coordination with all the mental health resources in the sector.
We currently have 10 beds in the Hospital, and thanks to a collaboration agreement with San Rafael Hospital, we also have an Integrated Adult Psychiatry Unit (UIPA), with 41 beds to admit acute psychiatric patients from the Barcelona Nord healthcare district.
Our goal is to lead the way in the design, study and research of more effective and efficient ways of addressing mental illness. We have created a model for the treatment of disruptive behaviours that is based first and foremost on the continuous advances made in neuroscience, clinical psychology and psychiatry regarding the knowledge of how the human brain works, and secondly on continuity of care throughout the whole therapeutic process.
We have four outpatient clinics (adults, addictions, children and adolescents and traumatology) and a Psychiatry Emergency ward with six bays, part of the A&E Department of the General Hospital:
On the other hand, we also offer suprasectoral programmes for the diagnosis and treatment of highly complex patients who are unable to receive adequate treatment at their centre in the Mental Health and Addiction Network of Catalonia.
