Fundació Puigvert - Barcelona Centre Privat

Learn about Fundació Puigvert: a highly specialised, single-speciality hospital with over 60 years of history that provides patients from all countries with medical attention

Admission of patients

After receiving a request, we contact the person to obtain the necessary information and inform them of the possible treatments of their health problem. If the person knows which specialist they want to perform the treatment, they can tell us. Otherwise, we assess the specific case with a multidisciplinary team to take a decision. If the person’s residence is far from our hospital, they may opt for the first visit being done online, which avoids having to make a second trip, and come directly for the procedure, after having accepted the estimated price, with the entire process programmed and planned.

First visit at our hospital

The reception area, examination rooms and spacious waiting room for those who visit Fundació Puigvert - Barcelona Centre Privat are located in a dedicated area in the basement of our hospital. The admissions service offers all the indications guests will need to get around during their stay, and, from that moment onwards, we guarantee the confidentiality of their data.

Medical and logistic accompaniment

We offer medical and logistic accompaniment throughout the hospital stay to ensure that all the steps of the process are completed as planned. We also offer an ambulance service and we provide transport in taxi in the event that tests must be performed in another healthcare centre.

Every year, we process over 100,000 medical examinations and we perform over 6,000 operations, nearly 200 of them with robotic surgery, and over 100 kidney transplants.

Single-speciality and supraspecialised hospital

With a workforce of over 700 professionals, we have over 20 specialised units that focus on different techniques and health aspects within our fields of specialisation: robotic surgery, kidney transplants, kidney stones, urinal incontinence, chronic kidney disease and dialysis, fertility conservation, erectile dysfunction, orphan kidney diseases and paediatric urology, among others. We also have our own specialised laboratories and we participate in different types of research projects.
