A pioneering facility with international outreach that contributes to the improvement and the promotion of women’s health
As the Department of Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Reproduction of Hospital Universitari Quirón Dexeus, Women’s Health Dexeus is one of the largest private clinics in Europe that is exclusively devoted to women’s health and is the largest in Spain. Our clinic combines the ability of providing services in the fields of healthcare, teaching and research, while maintaining technical excellence and a keen business spirit.
Its history goes back to 1935 when Dr Santiago Dexeus Font revolutionised obstetrics in Spain by setting up the first private maternal clinic in the country. Women stopped giving birth at home and were cared for in a hospital environment. He also founded the country’s first—and Europe’s oldest—obstetrics and gynaecology school, which still trains resident doctors (MIR) in this field and is a world point of reference.
From the times of the Mater Clinic to the current and innovative Women’s Health Dexeus, which is one of the largest private specialist facilities in Europe, many achievements have been made that have spread the reputation of Dexeus and placed it amongst the leaders in the world of medicine. On this journey that has lasted over half a century, the contributions it has made to women’s health have be-come apparent through medical advances in the treatment of patients, the training of specialists and research in the field of obstetrics, gynaecology and reproduction.
The new facility has taken a step forward in current women’s healthcare, as it has adapted its services to offer women specialised and tailor-made care at every stage of their lives. It offers them all of the services they need, with special emphasis on prevention and the early detection of medical disorders.
Women’s Health Dexeus, whose director is Dr Pedro N. Barri, provides services in obstetrics, gynaecology and human reproduction under the same roof, in a modern, functional building, which is one of the largest of its kind in Europe.
Its team of specialists has come up with a new concept in healthcare that is designed to safeguard the health of women at every stage of their lives. It aims to offer them all of the services that they may need in the same place. The building thus houses all of the medical offices, test facilities and operating theatres needed to cater for patients and is equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art technology.
The 60 doctors who make up the current team at Women’s Health Dexeus have prestigious reputations in the fields of healthcare, teaching and research. Some of the team members have been working for Dexeus for a number of years, while others have been picked from emerging new generations of renowned specialists. They all work at the clinic on an exclusive basis, have their own performance protocols and are specialised in highly specific areas. Their teamwork benefits patients, who are guaranteed that, should the case arise, they will be referred to the best specialist on the team. Cross-consultations are also possible whereby cases are reviewed by a multidisciplinary board of experts.
The challenge of the team at Women’s Health Dexeus is to tend to women at every stage of their lives to prevent illnesses and, if they arise, to offer them the very best of treatment using the latest technologies. The team’s commitment to serving society is patent in the research undertaken, the training of specialists and the keenness with which it offers its lifelong training programmes and medical support to other professionals in the sector.
