Hospital San Juan de Dios

- Clinic or private hospital
San Juan de Dios Hospital was inaugurated in 1953, becoming part of the group of hospitals and own centres governed by the Hospitaller Order of St John of God in Spain, a private management, non-profit institution.
Since its foundation, the Order− through its charisma and in different ways− develops and transmits a concept of hospitality focused on providing comprehensive care to sick people and those in a fragile situation.
Our Hospital in Zaragoza has been doing that for over 60 years, by offering− through a wide Portfolio of Services− from very specialized rehabilitation to palliative medicine at the most crucial moment of life, always striving to combine science and humanized medicine that respects the intrinsic value of the person as a whole.
