In the Social Work Department at San Juan de Dios we work to improve the quality of life for people in vulnerable situations, seeking the complicity of people, organizations, companies and institutions.
- We promote solidarity to offer a comprehensive care that takes into account the different dimensions of each person (physical, psychological, social, and spiritual)
- We raise awareness to break down prejudices and promote social inclusion
The Hospital Order of San Juan de Dios, with more than 500 years of history, maintains with conviction the value of hospitality as an essential core activity: we welcome and support those who need it most, with high respect to the person.
The target areas of San Juan de Dios are:
- Mental health
- Intellectual disabilities
- Dependent individuals
- Hospitalized children
- Biomedical research
- International cooperation
