The Institut Guttmann is committed to quality through a comprehensive concept, ranging from its care and services offered to the compassion of its professionals and the excellence in management of the organisation.
With the aim of continuously improving the safety of patients and adequately serving their families and the rest of society, the quality policy of the institution is based on five basic points:
- The patient at the centre of organisational management.
- The involvement (commitment and responsibility) of all professionals and contributors.
- Transversality and process management, integrating all professionals from different areas.
- The responsibility to society, the local area and the environment.
- Learning and continuous improvement.
Following the paradigm of “Total Quality”, it is governed by the EFQM (European Foundation for Quality Management) model, held by the Department of Health of the Generalitat de Catalunya (Government of Catalonia), which ensures compliance with quality standards. The organisation also voluntarily undergoes Joint Commission International accreditation, which certifies that the centre meets international standards of quality of care and management of the organisation.
