Multiple Sclerosis Centre of Catalonia

Pioneers in early diagnosis and personalised treatment of multiple sclerosis


The Multiple Sclerosis Centre of Catalonia, Cemcat, forms part of Vall d’Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus and is a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of multiple sclerosis. It is committed to the comprehensive care of patients and promotes the clinical research conducted in the centre.


Thanks to joint clinical sessions, Cemcat provides a link between professionals from different disciplines. Thus, all the care teams are involved and an ongoing relationship with other areas is maintained, to the benefit of patients.

Al Centre d’Esclerosi Múltiple de Catalunya som pioners en el diagnòstic precoç i el tractament personalitzat de l’esclerosi múltiple


Cemcat (the Multiple Sclerosis Centre of Catalonia) is working to advance diagnosis in the Neurology and Neuroimmunology Department. At the same time, it uses neuropsychology to detect and treat cognitive and emotional disorders associated with the illness. In parallel, throughout treatment, it uses neurorehabilitation as an important resource.

With a philosophy of people-centred healthcare and with patient-agreed objectives, treatment can be personalised. In short, it is a matter of improving the quality of life of patients according to their needs and decisions.

Healthcare activities include:

  • medical activity in external consultations
  • nursing care at the Day Hospital related to administering treatment
  • neuropsychological and emotional patient assessments

Over more than 20 years, Cemcat has systematically collected data on the evolution of patients who have been prescribed treatment for multiple sclerosis in the centre. This allows these people to be monitored and the results on the effectiveness of new drugs to be rapidly assessed.

One of Cemcat’s innovations is the Independent Life Laboratory, where occupational therapy is performed. The aim is to help patients to return to normal life in a 35 m2 space, which reconstructs an accessible and automated apartment. Patients thus learn to adapt their movements to their surroundings.
