Management model

The principles of Vall d'Hebron University Hospital can be summed up in one: we put the patient at the heart of everything. “The patient comes first” is our motto, and it covers the three main pillars of the hospital: knowledge; fluidity and agility in processes, and safety for patients and workers alike.

We use our teaching capacity and research activity to improve our services. 

We constantly work to improve our clinical care processes, in order to become more efficient in our activity, constantly improving and becoming more flexible in order to help the public. 

We guarantee medical safety for patients and professionals in all our activity.
