We always have our customers' comfort in mind and seek to offer them quality care. As part of this commitment, we have refurbished our facilities and can now unveil a brand new A&E department.

  • More space, enabling us to rival the best hospitals in the world with the speed and efficiency of our response.
  • The latest diagnostic and surgical systems.
  • Formalisation of agreements and partnerships with other care units in order to improve the position and expansion of our own.
  • General and paediatric A&E department 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, with an expert team of internist, intensivist and paediatric doctors.
  • Easily locatable specialists ready at any moment to attend to trauma, general surgery, thoracic surgery, urology, ophthalmology, gynaecology and neurosurgery emergencies.
  • Minimal waiting times, supreme comfort and customer satisfaction.

The new A&E department boasts a triage area, a trauma area and a resuscitation area. There is also an adult and a paediatric observation room, each with space for 4 patients. With this new department, CIMA is able to attend to 100 emergencies a day.


This is the procedure that the patient will follow in A&E, step by step:

  • First, reception and registration at A&E admissions.
  • An initial consultation will be carried out by trained nursing staff who will determine the level of severity, currently using the Spanish Triage System (SET, for the Spanish acronym), and assigning the most adequate specialist according to age, triage level and medical problem.
  • Next, the patient will be assessed by the medical staff in the corresponding area, who will establish the diagnostic/therapeutic approach.
  • After the initial medical intervention and depending on their medical problem, the patient may:
    1. be discharged from hospital, or
    2. kept under A&E observation for a better clinical control or completion of the diagnostic study, or
    3. admitted to a hospital ward.
  • The waiting time to receive medical care will depend on the pressure on the department at the time and on the severity of the problems.
  • Patients will go through both triage and the different areas accompanied by a single person (two if the patient is a minor).
  • During the assessment of the patient, complementary tests may be ordered, and the patient must await their turn in the waiting room or the examination area, according to medical criteria. If the diagnostic test is performed outside of the examination area, the person accompanying the patient will wait in the waiting room until it is performed.
  • Out of respect for the privacy of the other patients, the doors to the examination areas will remain closed and the individuals accompanying patients will be authorised to enter. For the same reason, they must be within the examination areas and not in the hallways.
  • Upon discharge, all patients will be given a medical report of their care or of their request for voluntary discharge.

Admission, access to certain specialist areas and tests will be by order of a doctor. Consult with your corresponding doctor.
