In the hospital
I’ve reached the hospital
Once you arrive at the hospital, please contact the reception located on the ground floor. The contact person for international patients will be able to provide you with any information you may need before, during and after your stay at the hospital. You can contact her by telephone +34-943 43 71 19 or by e.mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). She will also help you attend your first clinical appointment and, if required, will help with your admission.
If you are interested in undergoing surgery, you will first have to be assessed by the appropriate specialist. The physician taking care of you will find it very useful if you can provide as much prior information as possible: case history, diagnostic imaging results, recent clinical analyses. After you have been seen by the specialist, the Patient Help Desk will be able to provide you with an approximate estimate of the cost of your procedure.

From the moment you are admitted, our personnel will take care of monitoring your health and providing you with the necessary medical care. The personnel on the ward will explain the details of your stay, and address any queries you may have.
During your stay, you will be treated by a team of professionals with the shared goal of improving your health status. Please collaborate with them by following their instructions. All personnel wear ID badges showing their names and professional category. If this is not visible, please do not hesitate to ask for it. Your attending physician is the one who prescribed your admission. This physician will be responsible for all your treatment or will request the corresponding specialist to prescribe any diagnostic tests that may be necessary.
In addition, our team of nursing professionals, comprising nurses and nursing assistants, will take care of providing you will all the care you need to ensure ongoing, comprehensive and personalized attention. If there is anything you need, please notify the ward personnel. We will be delighted to help you.
