2020 The WHO mentions Vall d'Hebron University Hospital for its management of coronavirus The Vall d'Hebron University Hospital faced from the first quarter of 2020 in the Coronavirus pandemic. This one has been divided into several waves: during which we have been the Hospital of Catalonia with the most coronavirus patients and the largest ICU in the state during the first wave. 2019 Incorporation of the Autonomous University of Barcelona into the Campus In 2019, the Autonomous University of Barcelona will be the newest institution to be part of Vall d'Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus. 2016 The Campus at your service The Vall d’Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus was officially opened in 2016. This project enhances the pioneering and leading spirit of four different institutions: Vall d'Hebron University Hospital, Vall d'Hebron Research Institute, Vall d'Hebron Institute of Oncology and Multiple Sclerosis Centre of Catalonia, which excel in care, research, teaching, management and innovation. From this moment, the Campus began to work on joint projects. Starting with the creation of mixed teams from the different institutions to roll out strategic projects such as the Innovation Committee, a new development plan for the surroundings and shared services such as the laboratory animals. 2015 First steps of the Campus The Campus project was first conceived in 2015 with the desire to strengthen the synergies and alliances between certain organisations through a shared background and space, whilst continuing to function independently of each other. Twelve months later, as part of the celebrations for the 60th anniversary of the Vall d’Hebron University Hospital, the proposal was presented. In this way, Vall d'Hebron follows in the footsteps of other healthcare institutions such as the Karolinska Institute and Harvard, which decided to join forces to strengthen and optimize their resources years ago. 2012 Multiple Sclerosis Centre of Catalonia (CEMCAT) CEMCAT was consolidated as a single centre dedicated to the treatment of multiple sclerosis, thus expanding the services and studies related to this disease, which until then had been carried out at the Hospital's Clinical Neuroimmunology Department. All this potential meant there was a need to combine forces and work in an even more coordinated fashion. 2005 Creation of the Vall d’Hebron Institute of Oncology Specialist cancer research started to take off at the Vall d’Hebron University Campus with the opening of the oncology research centre. Scientists and doctors adopted a purely translational research model, working in multidisciplinary teams to accelerate and make progress in the field of personalised and targeted cancer therapies. 2001 University Hospital Two different hospitals were merged under the same name: Vall d’ Hebron University Hospital. 1994 First steps of the Vall d’Hebron Research Institute The Vall d'Hebron Research Institute was created in order to promote and develop bio-health research, innovation and teaching. It was created to identify and apply new solutions to society's health problems and to help spread them around the world. It took the final step ten years later, when a specific building dedicated to research laboratories was opened on the Campus. 1971 Incorporation of the UAB The Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) was incorporated into the Healthcare City as a Teaching Unit, serving to train the healthcare professionals of the future on the front line. 1967 Inauguration of the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital , the Children’s Hospital and the Women’s Hospital With the addition of the three specialised hospitals, we became a leader in patient care, in terms of both basic health care and highly complex specialities. 1966 The Nursing School is opened Vall d’Hebron became a “Healthcare City” with the construction of three specialised hospitals and the opening of the University Nursing School (now known as the Old Nursing School). 1955 Inauguration of the General Hospital Vall d’Hebron was born with the creation of the General Hospital: a public, university and community hospital located in Barcelona. Gradually, it will become the largest hospital complex in Catalonia and one of the largest in Spain, offering highly complex healthcare.
