Consorci Hospitalari de Vic
The Consorci Hospitalari de Vic (CHV) is a public institution that offers healthcare, socio-sanitary, dependency, residential and mental helth services. Our aim is to make available to the inhabitants of the region of Osona (about 155,000 people) a quality care service, both public and private, applying social responsibility criteria.
Legally, the CHV is form by the Generalitat de Catalunya and the Fundació Hospital de la Santa Creu de Vic and is organized as a public and institutional non-profit consortium created under Decree 302/1986 of 9 September. With almost 30 years of history, it is the first Consortium that was created in the helthcare sector in Catalonia following this model, today reference throughout the country.
The CHV manages six centres with different profiles: Hospital Universitari de Vic (public healthcare), Clínica de Vic (non-public healthcare), Osona Salut Mental (specialized mental healthcare), Hospital Sant Jaume de Manlleu (intermediate care and dependency), Residència Aura (residential centre for the elderly) and the Centre de dia Josep Roqué i Castells (day centre for the elderly).
Since 2014, the Consorci Hospitalari de Vic has been accredited as a University Hospital through an agreement with the Universitat de Vic-Universitat Central de Catalunya, which allows the joint use of the resources and structures of the hospital centres and the university in teaching, research and innovation. The Teaching Unit of the Hospital Universitari de Vic allows the sharing of professional profiles and to create synergies in the transfer of knowledge.
Moreover, CHV participates in different entities related to healthcare activity and mantains alliances with other healthcare institutions, universities and associations with the aim of improving the quality of care, teaching and research, citizenship satisfaction and organizational sustainability.
The teaching, research and innovation concepts are highly integrated into the CHV mission to the extent that these areas, which are included under the umbrella of the Direction of Knowledge Transfer, constitute one of the main lines of the 2020 Strategic Plan, which will guide the course of the entity over the next few years.
