Rehabilitation Unit

The mission of this area is to assist ambulatory and/or hospitalized patients with physical or neurological disabilities, based on the diagnosis, assessment and adequate integral and effective rehabilitation treatment, ensuring the safety of treatment throughout the process, providing comprehensive, adequate information and "personalized" treatment, to return them to their environment in the best condition and/or improve their quality of life.

  • When a patient goes to the rehabilitative doctor, the first interview is conducted, a physical examination and the collection of information that will be needed later on, and the doctor assesses whether it is necessary to perform additional tests.

    This information determines the treatment to be performed, based on the diagnosis, establishing a personalized rehabilitation program according to the physical and/or functional needs of each patient.

    This plan or programme is passed on to a dedicated team of physical therapists, who apply the plans and maintain a continuous contact with the rehabilitation physician, for the purpose of achieving greater efficiency in the rehabilitation objectives set for each patient.
