About the HSJD

Who we are

SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital is a private, non-profit institution that is dedicated to public service. SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital is a member of the Brothers Hospitallers of Saint John of God, which manages more than 300 healthcare centres in 50 countries around the world and serves the most vulnerable groups in hospitals, health centres, social services and religious communities.

Since 1867, our hospital has been dedicated to comprehensive care for women, children and adolescents, and has become one of the most important specialised paediatric centres in Europe. Our care is based on the multidisciplinary work of our professionals.

Through the Sant Joan de Déu Foundation, we conduct research to find new and better treatments for paediatric diseases.

As a university hospital, we contribute to the training of health professionals, together with the University of Barcelona. Our goal is not only to promote and encourage the training of our professionals in order to improve the health of our patients and the community, but also to advance scientific and human knowledge.
