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.

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.

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.
