Grupo Hospitalario Quirónsalud - Overview

COVID-19 UPDATE: Quirónsalud hospitals are taking security measures to allow all patients to receive care regularly and normally

For this reason, they have adapted their facilities to the new situation, creating differentiated circuits to also attend urgent cases or patients whose care has not been interrupted with maximum security, and have progressively disinfected those areas in which they have been treated Covid-19 patients. In addition to the protocols focused on the reactivation of the activity, in some centers different measures are being applied, for example:

    • Differentiated circuits to be able to attend patients as safely as possible.
    • Telemedicine. Non-face-to-face consultations via telephone, videoconference or chat have been imposed during the pandemic.
    • Thermal imaging cameras that, using an infrared ray system, allow people with fever to be detected automatically.
    • Disinfection with pioneering cold aerosolization systems, capable of generating a mist consisting of 1 billion microdrops of disinfectant dissolved in water and using air as a driving force.
    • Disinfection with ultraviolet C and UVC technology.

    On the other hand, we would like to share some figures that speak for themselves of the collective effort that the Quirónsalud Group has made to date to respond to this crisis:

    1. Around 15,000 patients have been admitted by COVID-19 to Group hospitals (among them, 1,400 in ICU beds), which represents approximately 1 in 8 hospitalized patients in Spain, about 13% of the total, a percentage significantly higher than what would correspond to the Group for its number of beds. In the most affected places, such as Madrid and Barcelona, ​​almost 1 in 5 hospitalized have been treated. Also including many vulnerable and elderly patients.
    2. In the first weeks of the crisis, 1,400 additional beds were added, including 400 new ICU beds (doubling the company's initial capacity) and 140 beds in a medicalized hotel. In addition, around 350 new respirators were incorporated (including 30 that were shipped from Germany), in a context of great international shortage.
    3. Additionally, almost 2,000 new staff hires were made to respond to both the avalanche of patients and the sick leave that we have had, and nearly 250 volunteers from our centers traveled throughout Spain to support the most critical moments in Madrid and Barcelona.
    4. Diagnostic kits (both PCR and antibodies) have multiplied and more than 3.5 million protective kits (including 2.5 million masks) have been purchased, including 2 ambulances purchased to move patients quickly between our hospitals .
    5. The Group was the first to carry out massive tests on the entire workforce of 40,000 employees.
    6. Digital consultations have accelerated and, during this crisis, we have exceeded 2 million users on the Patient Portal. Clearly, digitization is here to stay.

    QUALITY
    We at Quirónsalud focus on caring for the health and well-being of people, putting top-quality health services within their reach. As part of this effort, we understand that quality standards play an important role along our path toward excellence. Our quality-management system is designed based on the Group's strategy and is adapted to the structure, care activity, and size of each health center, thereby allowing the quality system to be used as an organization-wide improvement tool.

    Our commitment to quality has driven us to apply several complementary management systems, including those of Joint Commission International, European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM), Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Scheme (DIAS), and certification under the ISO standards.

    We take a patient-centered approach to both care and non-care activities. These non-care activities include ancillary services performed by the Group companies Health Diagnostic and Servicios, Personas y Salud, which have also successfully attained their own quality and environmental-management certifications.

    Quirónsalud health centers uphold the organization's commitment to quality by adhering to the guidelines of the Management Policy

    A structure is in place to ensure fluid communication of the objectives and indicators that make it possible to assess efficiency and continuously improve in the work we do. The excellent feedback patients give our hospitals and the numerous prizes and recognitions they have earned from governmental and private-sector entities attest to the effectiveness of this communication.
