It has been twelve months full of extraordinary news, not all good, but our team is not easily intimidated, and we look to the future; we know how to pull ourselves together and overcome setbacks, how to adapt to the circumstances of the moment and think of a brighter future.

I am very proud of this determined spirit, which has helped it to overcome all barriers: thanks to the efforts and sterling work of all of the professionals at Torrevieja, we’ve come a long way. The continued commitment of our team has made the department an international landmark in healthcare. Indeed, Torrevieja forms part of the network of the world’s best hospitals, having achieved Joint Commission International accreditation.READ MORE

A pioneer in the detective genre, she has been copied and plagiarised: yes, it happened to her work, too, though no copy has ever achieved the success of the original.READ MORE
Health systems around the world must face major global challenges like an aging population, chronic diseases, the evolution of technology, and the introduction of new medicines. While it is true that we are still in the beginning stages of defining a strategy to address these challenges, many countries are fortunately already working ‘side by side’, participating in reforms as a way to tackle these issues with an innovative and disruptive approach.
