Do you want a Personal Health Advisor to contact you?
Our attention is totally private (without providing services to insurers except reimbursements).
What is it?
At Vithas International we offer our patients a fully innovative service based on the “personal doctor”, a doctor for both national and international patients, who takes charge of the health of the whole family.
In our Unit we offer comprehensive service, applying the newest knowledge in order to maintain health at a physical and psychological level, guaranteeing a holistic view in each case.
Dr. Cecilia Almuiña is head of the International Medical Institute. She is a specialist in Family and Community Medicine, and her vocation for caring for patients in all its complexity has defined her professional career.
As she states, the population requires comprehensive care, and desires the security of having a doctor who knows how to guide them to improve their state of health. The doctor that knows their patients personally takes care of their diagnosis, treatment, monitoring and coordinates with other specialists when necessary for their evaluation. We also avoid overlaps in processes, as everything is unified.
At the International Medical Institute, service is fully personalised and constant, combining the patient’s healthcare in a central figure.
The personal doctor, along with the personal health advisor, are directly involved in care for each individual.
Our goal is to be a unit of reference which goes beyond the consultation, as we provide domestic care, service by phone or email, emergencies, and ultimately, serve any healthcare need of the patient.
We have a highly qualified healthcare team that focuses on all processes of care, seeking the maximum satisfaction and applying the latest scientific knowledge.
In addition to our team, there is the infrastructure of Vithas International, which has all the necessary advances, both for patient care and monitoring.
At the International Medical Institute we work with all kinds of adult patients, from healthy patients seeking prevention, to chronic patients with various pathologies, whose monitoring and treatment requires a highly qualified medical practitioner.
Our service includes long term monitoring plans, personalised based on the profile of the patient.
