The Internal Medicine Department at Hospital Fundación Jiménez Díaz Quirónsalud offers comprehensive care for patients during their hospital stay.

In addition to the historical connection between the Internal Medicine Department and Fundación Jiménez Díaz, Internal Medicine is gaining renewed significance within various healthcare systems.

In an era of growing specialisation, the Internist plays a crucial role as a clinician with the training and expertise to deliver comprehensive, holistic care to patients of all kinds, guiding them through the different diagnostic and therapeutic procedures from an overall perspective.

An Internist sees patients with any type of pathology/disease and guides them along the complex healthcare path, directing and coordinating the actions to be taken in response to their condition. Collaborating closely with the rest of the specialists whenever necessary, to ensure a correct diagnosis and treatment.

Internists are the experts that primary care physicians and other specialists turn to for diagnostic guidance for complex patients, along with those affected by various diseases or who present symptoms involving multiple organs, apparatuses or systems of the body.

Faced with the unstoppable progress of technology, the Internal Medicine specialist assumes the role of an efficient physician, making carefully considered decisions on the range of supplementary examinations required in a diagnostic approach.

However, Internists' extensive training does not prevent them from being experts in certain pathologies such as control of cardiovascular risk factors, infectious diseases, especially HIV infection, congestive heart failure and autoimmune diseases, often demonstrating superior performance compared to other medical specialities.

Specific areas in the Internist's activity include:

  • Diagnosis of patients with complex symptoms.
  • Care for patients with various diseases or pathologies.
  • Infectious diseases and HIV infection.
  • Cardiovascular risk factors.
  • Systemic autoimmune diseases.
  • Care of patients with thromboembolic disease.
  • Medical interconsultation from the surgical area.

The Service is generally organised around:

  • Internal Medicine Hospitalisation Unit. Located in Units 66 and 67, it has 90 conventional hospital beds.
  • Outpatient Consultations.
