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.

We currently feature 38 hospitals and clinics with center-wide certification and 6 departments with individual quality certification.


We are committed to sustainable development, and in furtherance of this commitment 15 of our centers are certified for environmental management under the ISO 14001 standard.

Placing quality at the center of what we do has been fundamental to Centro Medico Teknon's successful effort to obtain the Joint Commission International accreditation. This recognition from the world's gold standard in health care is a great source of pride for the organization, as it is the culmination of concerted effort to attain world-class levels of quality.



CENTERS OF EXCELLENCE

Quirónsalud deals with all medical and/or surgical specialities, with particular emphasis on the prevention, early detection and treatment of cancer in its integrated oncology units, which are considered centres of excellence in Spain. Assisted reproduction is also one of the areas of expertise of the Quirónsalud Hospital Group, with specialized units available in each of the Group’s hospitals. The fact that these units form part of the structure of the hospitals means that patients can carry out all complementary tests and consultations in the same centre, a bonus in terms of privacy and trust. All the latest advances are available in all the centres and we perform the most novel techniques within the field. Plastic surgery is another of the major specialities of the Quirónsalud hospitals, witnessed by the excellence and renown of the plastic surgeons making up these units. All necessary resources are available to these surgeons for solving their patients’ problems and for ensuring their peaceful and satisfactory recovery in select surroundings.

Quirónsalud is well known for its work in areas such as cardiology, gynaecology or ophthalmology, but it is also worth mentioning the medical check-up units, which provide a rapid and efficient service to patients who require a detailed and personalized evaluation of their state of health in a quick, discrete and well-organized manner.

Quirónsalud’s circle of success is completed with our care for the patient and the family, who are always offered the best in terms of hospitality (individual rooms, rooms with a window, select gastronomy, etc.) and an attentive and friendly approach from all the staff members of our hospitals.

We are proud to have the most prestigious specialists in the country within each field of specialty, thanks to our hospital network and programs of internal and external training, where staff share their knowledge and know-how with all our professionals, regardless of their location.

The company also invests heavily in research aimed at finding a cure for hematologic diseases such as leukemia, lymphomas, and myeloma.Thanks to the excellence of our medical teams and high levels of investment in technology (e.g., brachytherapy, simulation for radiation therapy, tomotherapy, GammaKnife radiation therapy) we have successfully positioned ourselves at the forefront of cancer care, offering a number of pioneering treatments.
