The Hospital Clínic Barcelona is considered one of the best in Spain. Founded in 1906, it is a university hospital belonging to the Network of Hospitals of Public Utility of Catalonia (called XHUP) that offers medical care in most of the medical and surgical specialties. Due to its efficiency and the quality of its management, and for its vocation to offer a humanized and avant-garde medicine, the Clínic obtained years ago the so-called C accreditation, which means being a "high-tech and reference hospital". But this hospital is much more than a hospital center, it is the driving force behind one of the leading reference institutions in the health sciences in Spain: the Clínic Group.
