Fundació Privada Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau

The origins of the Fundació Privada Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau date all the way back to 1401, when the Hospital de la Santa Creu de Barcelona was founded as the result of the merger of six hospitals belonging to the City and the Cathedral Chapter. To govern the Hospital, the Molt Il·lustre Administració (the Honourable Board of Administration) was established, formed by two distinguished figures from the city appointed by the Consell de Cent (“Council of One Hundred”, which later became the City Council) and two canons from the Cathedral Chapter.
The Board of Administration oversaw all aspects of the management of the Hospital until it was restructured in 1990, when the Generalitat (Catalan Government) joined the Board, and the roles of healthcare and asset management were definitively separated.
The Foundation now runs a Social Action and Research Plan comprising different programmes and initiatives primarily designed to provide support for healthcare, education, research and other social projects. The Plan also involves a series of measures to maintain and improve the Hospital’s facilities and its heritage.
