Children and teenagers at the hospital 
can keep up their normal lives

The activities of the Hospital Classroom and the Ciber@ula virtual classroom are really useful for children at the hospital. They make their stay more enjoyable and help them recover. At Vall d'Hebron University Hospital we combine the play and educational activities so that hospitalised children can improve their mood and quality of life.

School at the hospital

The Hospital Classroom was created in 1995 with the goal of offering care for hospitalised children. 

Located on the third floor of the Children's Hospital, the Hospital Classroom is the result of an agreement between the Department of Education of the Government of Catalonia and the Catalan Health Institute. The Hospital Classroom is open to children aged from 6 to 16. Children who cannot move can take part from wherever they are hospitalised. Lessons are always held in the morning.

It is located on Floor –1, next to the emergency room, from Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Friday from 3.30 a.m. to 7 p.m. During the weekend, it is open Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Aplicació mòbil Scankids VH

Scankids VH

Scankids VH is a gamified application for children between 6 and 12 years old who have to undergo a diagnostic imaging test at the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital. The app has a game where the children, guided by their parents, caregivers and healthcare professionals, must choose a test and the part of the body to diagnose. It uses 3D animations of the test rooms and the devices used for X-rays, CT, magnetic resonance or ultrasounds, so they can see what it will be like on the day of their test in a fun, informative way.
