The Quirónsalud Hospital in Torrevieja is one of the most advanced on a national level

When talking about great beaches, cheap holiday destinations, paella and horchata, the Valencia Region is always the first place that springs to mind, but over the last few years, this area has fast become known as a national reference for being home to the best hospitals and excellent patient treatment.

While treating thousands of people from the region itself, there has recently been a growing trend for people outside of the region and even from abroad to seek medical attention here as well.

With sophisticated technology, the most advanced medical machinery, some of the best doctors and surgeons in the country and an improved infrastructure around the area, it’s no wonder that the health sector in the Valencia Region is being looked upon as one of the strongest sectors within the economy.

And, here in the area of Torrevieja, we are lucky enough to have one of these hospitals of excellence right on our doorstep – the Quirónsalud. This chain of private hospitals is one of the most technologically advanced in the country, with the Torrevieja hospital referred to as one of the best in the Valencia Region.

And now the Quirónsalud Torrevieja branch has been recognised for its efforts after being recognised as the Best International Hospital in the world for its treatment of international patients in the IMTJ Medical Travel Awards 2017.

Francisco Fiestras, regional managing director of Quirónsalud de Levante, said: “We are pioneers when it comes to the subject of international patient care and we have developed a health management system that is in line with the needs and requirements of our patients.”

Fiestras also commented that the key to their success was the fact the way the hospital is run is totally geared towards the international patient, including those that travel to Torrevieja from abroad to receive treatment. He pointed out that there is no point trying to treat a patient from Russia or the Middle East in the same way as one from France or the UK. “It doesn’t make sense,” he said.

Another key factor is that the international health tourist looks for excellent patient care, as little paperwork and burocracy as possible, a translation service if required and to be treated as quickly as possible.

Those at the Quirónsalud hospital understand this and this is why the hospital is successful.
