Who we are
Clínica Corachan is one of the most prestigious private clinics in Barcelona. We combine tradition and modernity, which guarantees maximum attention and personalised treatment.
The clinic was founded on 19 May 1921 at its current location by Dr Manuel Corachan, an eminent surgeon and prolific teacher. The institution focuses on attending and satisfying all of its patients’ needs by offering high quality, personal attention with a human touch.
Teaching and research
In 2019, as part of its commitment to quality, being in the vanguard and excellence, Clínica Corachan received the award for the best clinic in Spain in the TOP 20 of IASIST in the category of private, large-scale hospitals. This is the fifth consecutive year in which the Clinic has received this award, which distinguishes it as one of the most efficient and most highly valued centres in the country.
It was also distinguished in the 2009 awards with the highest award, and in 2010 it was the voted best Catalan centre. In addition, the Clinic is accredited by the Government of Catalonia as an acute care centre and was the first hospital in Spain to obtain the “Trust” accreditation in patient safety.
In 2014 Clínica Corachan took an important step forward with a new 12,995 m2 building completely integrated in the rest of the healthcare complex. The expansion contains cutting-edge facilities, new high-tech operating rooms, a new and complete obstetrics area, a new A&E department, new rooms, new parking spaces, new high-performance magnetic resonance imaging and many more services.
In 2017, the Clinic opened Corachan Nord, a 1,500 m² outpatient building located in Tres Torres Street no. 7 to which the specialities of internal medicine, paediatrics, dermatology, cardiology, pneumology and allergies have been transferred. The building houses the latest trends in healthy materials, and has excellent, universal, barrier-free accessibility and antibacterial handles on all the doors of the enclosure, which guarantees advanced, complete and quality healthcare.
