Come and play the piano at Vall d’Hebron
At Vall d’Hebron we are committed to humanising care, placing children and their families at the core. We offer integrated care, treating the physical aspects of the illness alongside the psychological and social repercussions. This is why our younger patients have access to toys, play areas and a host of activities that promote wellbeing.
The Neonatology Department’s Sibling Project is a workshop for the siblings of new-born babies admitted to the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit in the Vall d’Hebron Maternity and Children's Hospital. Through simulated games and situations, the project prepares them to get used to seeing their younger siblings in a hospital medical setting.
Ana Alcántara has witnessed a large part of Vall d’Hebron University Hospital’s history. She started work just one month before the Traumatology and Rehabilitation Hospital and the Maternity and Children’s Hospital were inaugurated and formed part of the centre’s first Communication Unit.
