This past July, Quirónsalud inaugurated a new medical centre in Gran Alacant, Santa Pola.

The Quirónsalud centre network, with hospitals, clinics, and medical centres, allows the company to incorporate the best care practices, as is the case at the Quirónsalud Gran Alacant centre.
The inauguration of the Gran Alacant clinic has taken place in the framework of a strategic collaboration with the company Nou Mediterrani S.A., owner of the Hotel AJ, the lower floors of which house the healthcare centre, together with the Gran Alacant shopping centre, which belongs to Grupo ASA and Josman.

All specialisations, medical services and diagnostic tests at the centre are designed to provide complete care for the health of both adult and paediatric patients, and offer integral, personalised and quality care in a quest for the patient’s wellbeing.
As for services, the healthcare centre has a conventional radiology theatre, a rehabilitation and physiotherapy gym, nursing consultation room for wound care and injections, clinical analysis laboratory, and vaccination centre.
For the paediatric specialisation, Quirónsalud has a team of paediatricians from Centre Creciendo, where they take a holistic approach to the physical and emotional heath of their patients from birth until the end of life, led by Juanjo Saval (child psychologist) and Lucía Galán Bertrand (paediatrician).
The medical centre receives surgical support from the hospitals that the group currently runs in the province; Quirónsalud Torrevieja and Alicante.
Additionally, the centre works closely with the main national and international insurance companies.
