The Pediatric Service of the Vall d’Hebron University Hospital integrates various sections and units of specific pediatric areas. We provide assistance from birth to adolescence. As a center integrated into the Vall de Hebrón University Hospital, we facilitate the transfer of child patients to adults within the same hospital complex.
The Vall de Hebrón Children’s Hospital is one of the centers with the greatest capacity to resolve complex pediatric processes in Catalonia and in the Spanish State.
To carry out care, teaching and research activities, the Paediatrics Service has 52 faculty specialists in paediatrics on staff. In addition, it has adequate nursing and administrative staff, as well as significant support from research and social work staff, among others. The 60 residents of Pediatrics and their specific areas receive training and participate in assistance during their stays in the different units of the Service.
