SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital Report

150 years at the service of the most vulnerable

In 2017, the Sant Joan de Déu Hospital Barcelona celebrated its 150th anniversary. In the spirit of transparency, we provide the community and individuals with information, covering the past five years, about our annual activity as a healthcare and research centre, as well as other interesting information.

Summary of the Annual Report 2017

All the healthcare, research, innovation, education and solidarity activity of the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital.


Working for the improvement of maternal and child care

We emphasize the implementation of new therapies, especially in the areas of oncology and neurosciences, the growth of the number of clinical trials and the commitment to accreditation and the continuous improvement of quality and patient safety.

R+D+i at the service of people

Research has been developed under the wing of the Sant Joan de Déu Research Institute, a consortium led by the Hospital which also includes several partner centers. Through training, we offer comprehensive assistance based on multidisciplinarity.

With a spirit of solidarity

During the twelve months of 2018 there have been many things that have filled us with enthusiasm and have also given us strength to continue giving the best of all of us. In our charity anual report you can see many of them.

Quality indicators

The 2016 report on the Centre's results, drafted by the Catalan Agency for Health Quality and Assessment (AQuAS), showed that our Hospital had some good results, especially in Women's Health  Department and in the Emergency Department.

In Women's Health, the report highlights above-average pain management during childbirth and postpartum, consistent criteria throughout the process, service offered to patients' companions, hospital stay and information provided for child care.

With regard to the Emergency Department (ER), our Hospital has a satisfaction rate markedly above average and shows better results than other centres in trust, pain management, disease-related information, organisation, resolution of the reason for the emergency, comfort in the waiting rooms and information on waiting times.
