European University Hospitals Alliance (EUHA)
Descripció del projecte
Vall d’Hebron is hosting the European University Hospital Alliance (EUHA), made up of Europe's largest university hospitals working collaboratively to improve present and future patient outcomes.
The European University Hospital Alliance was founded in 2017, with a view to sharing experience in the areas of health, research and education. Each of the members is a leading university hospital in its country, with a capacity of more than 1,000 beds. They are national reference centres and, together, supply 100% of the existing European Reference Networks (ERNs). Moreover, all members of the Alliance have centres of excellence in research and are affiliated to a university.
The overall objective of its members is to play an active role in shaping the future of healthcare in the European Union, sharing the best practices in order to benefit patients and maximising efforts to promote high quality research.
The objectives of the European University Hospital Alliance are:
- To improve patient outcomes.
- To improve the opportunities and experiences of members of the Alliance in all areas.
- To strengthen relationships with key stakeholders, such as political leaders, the European Commission, pharmaceutical and medical technology companies and funding agencies.
The new members of the European University Hospital Alliance are:
- Allgemeines Krankenhaus der Stadt Wien - Vienna, Austria
- Assistance Publique - Hôpitaux de Paris - Paris, France
- Charité - Berlin, Germany
- Erasmus Universität Medisch Centrum - Rotterdam, Netherlands
- Hospital Universitari Vall d'Hebron - Barcelona, Spain
- Karolinska Universitetssjukhuset - Stockholm, Sweden
- King's Health Partners - London, United Kingdom
- Ospedale San Raffaele - Milan, Italy
- UZ Leuven - Leuven, Belgium
Among all healthcare actors, university hospitals play an important role and are one of the main drivers and catalysts of innovation.
The Alliance sets out to improve communication between university hospitals; share good practices in the areas of patient care, innovation and other fields; and discuss issues in order to strengthen European healthcare systems. The Alliance also seeks to extend opportunities so that researchers, clinical professionals and other employees have the chance to acquire experience in other European university hospitals and develop professional networks.

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.
There are more than 3,000 nurses and nursing assistants at Hospital Vall d’Hebron. The work they do in the centre is vital and they are leaders both in nursing care and research. Getting to this point was a long process, as Mariona Creus, former nursing director, and Maria Àngels Barba, the current director, recall.
The Master's Degree in Biomedical and Translational Research is an official programme created to train researchers with the requisite combination of scientific knowledge and skills to contribute to the future success of biomedical research.
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.
The winning proposal for the transformation of the Vall d’Hebron Campus is the project directed by Jordi Badia, Antoni Ubach and Miquel Espinet. The project presented by the architects includes a new research building for the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute, with an expandable area of 5,000 m2 and a budget of €15 million funded by ERDF (European Regional Development Fund).
