We bring our talent together

Maternity and Children's Hospital

Comprehensive and personalised mother and baby care


The Vall d’Hebron Maternity and Children's Hospital is one of the centres with the biggest capacity to resolve complex paediatric processes in Catalonia and Spain. We specialise in paediatric, obstetric and gynaecological care and we are a reference centre in oncology, congenital heart disease, neonatology, foetal surgery and lung surgery.

Hospital Maternoinfantil a Vall d'Hebron


The Maternity and Children's Hospital carries out basic healthcare activities, such as births, breast pathologies and common illnesses in children. We also offer specific and advanced treatments in high risk pregnancies, neonatology, paediatric transplants, surgery for congenital diseases or prenatal diagnosis. We incorporate specialisms such as cystic fibrosis or foetal surgery.

We provide care services from birth to adolescence. As a centre integrated into Vall d’Hebron University Hospital, we facilitate the transfer of child patients to adults within the hospital complex.

Regarding highly complex paediatric care in long-term treatments, there is the Care Park, Oncology Day Hospital and Paediatric Haematology. Opened in 2015, it is the first centre in Spain of this size and with these characteristics dedicated exclusively to caring for children with cancer. A 500-metre-squared facility with 12 treatment areas, four consultation rooms, a clinical trial unit, an examination room with anaesthesia support and an area where immunosuppressed children may be admitted.

Finally, it is worth mentioning the Cystic Fibrosis Unit, both for children and adults, the first in Spain and one of the first in Europe to have walls and doors covered in copper (the only material capable of eliminating more than 99% of bacteria) to prevent cross contamination. Vall d’Hebron University Hospital’s Cystic Fibrosis Unit is the only one in Spain that is part of the Clinical Trial Network of the European Cystic Fibrosis Society.
