  • Ribera, which managed the Torrevieja Hospital until 2021, is once again present in the south of the province of Alicante with a new healthcare project.

The Ribera health group has opened a new private clinic in Ciudad Quesada (Rojales), located just a few minutes from Torrevieja.  This new medical centre offers a complete portfolio of services with medical and surgical specialties, high diagnostic technology and a team of professionals with experience in different Ribera hospitals.

The clinic, which has involved an investment of 1 million euros, is equipped to offer complete health care to people who live or enjoy their holidays in the south of the province of Alicante.  Its location, in a privileged natural environment, is also an area of international residents, so the centre is prepared to attend to patients in different languages, as well as having agreements with different insurance companies.

The medical centre is designed to look after the health of the whole family with the main specialities including: Anaesthesia, Cardiology, General Surgery, Physiotherapy, Gynaecology and Obstetrics, General Medicine, Nursing, Neuropaediatrics, Nutrition, Dentistry, Otorhinolaryngology, Paediatrics, Psychology, Traumatology, Urology and an emergency service with uninterrupted opening hours from Monday to Friday from 9am to 8pm.

In addition, the clinic has a Dental Unit with all the treatments of general dentistry, aesthetic dentistry, implantology, etc., as well as a line of aesthetic medicine with a complete portfolio of body and facial treatments and techniques aimed at the prevention of skin ageing. 

In terms of medical technology, the centre has state-of-the-art radiology equipment and an orthopantomograph for dental X-rays, so that the patient obtains an immediate diagnosis.  This service allows us to offer complete care to patients injured in traffic accidents, for whom the centre offers a special protocol.

Ribera Ciudad Quesada has a clinical team with experience in different hospitals and the guarantee of the group. Many of them are professionals with knowledge of the Vega Baja area, who worked with Ribera during the period of management of the University Hospital of Torrevieja and its network of health centres, until 2021.  Nuria Hernández, head of the Ribera Ciudad Quesada clinic, highlighted the professionalism of the team in this project and the importance of offering patients not only the best clinical diagnosis, but also the closest human treatment.

These new facilities, distributed over two floors, are designed with a modern and innovative approach, with patient comfort in mind. The clinic has 8 consultation rooms (6 of them multi-purpose), an emergency room, a radiology area, a minor surgery area and a gymnasium, as well as offices and an administration area. 

For the Director of the project, Pepa Soriano, “Ribera returns to the area of Torrevieja and Vega Baja with a healthcare project designed to meet the needs of patients who require quality care, without waiting and with the confidence of the group’s professionals”.

This new clinic joins the network of centres of the Ribera group, which manages hospitals and specialised care services in 5 autonomous communities in Spain, both public and private. Ribera is also present in other projects in Latin America, Europe and the Middle East.

Ribera wins the Digital Health award for Best Telemedicine project with its digital nutrition programme in dialysis

Ribera wins the Digital Health award for Best Telemedicine project with its digital nutrition programme in dialysis

  • It includes personalised nutritional plans and guidelines and offers real-time monitoring of the nutritional habits of each person under treatment, with a system of alerts to prevent deterioration.
  • The healthcare group is a finalist in the award for Technological Originality with its Rhythms of Life campaign to help prevent cardiovascular diseases, the centrepiece of which is an original metronome that oscillates to the rhythm of a heart with arrhythmia.

    The Ribera healthcare group has won the award for Best Telemedicine Project with its digital nutrition programme for dialysis patients, developed in collaboration with Nootric, at the 7th edition of the Digital Health Awards held yesterday at the headquarters of the Cofares Foundation in Madrid. It was also a finalist with its campaign for the prevention of cardiovascular problems, Ritmos de Vida and its arrhythmic metronome in the category of the award for Technological Originality in Health. Ribera’s Digital Transformation Officer, Tania Menéndez, and the group’s Director of Communication, Marketing and CSR, Angélica Alarcón, were in charge of collecting the prize and the diploma for each project, in a public ceremony attended by the Regional Minister of Health of the Community of Madrid, Enrique Ruíz Escudero.

    The Digital Health awards aim to recognise initiatives developed in the area of health, both in the public and private sectors, that contribute to improving the health, wellbeing and quality of life of people through new information and communication technologies, also known as eHealth, as stated in its rules. The Ribera Group is “very proud and satisfied” with both awards as “they are prizes for important, high-quality projects promoted by leading institutions and companies”.

    The Ribera Group’s digital nutrition service for dialysis patients at the Vinalopó University Hospital (Elche) and its Nefrosol dialysis centre (Alicante), developed in collaboration with Nootric, offers a personalised diet plan, coordinated by nutritionists and the nephrology medical team, supported by a mobile application. In this first phase, focused on overweight or obese dialysis patients who are candidates for kidney transplantation, their quality of life was improved and their body weight was significantly reduced (6.4kg on average per patient), in addition to improving body composition and increasing strength gain. The programme, which has been run by a great team of professionals led by Dr Eva Cotilla de la Rosa, head of the Nephrology Service at the Vinalopó University Hospital, and Dr Omar David Miranda, medical director of Nefrosol, has been very well received, as it allows real-time monitoring of the nutritional habits of each person undergoing treatment, without the need to visit a doctor’s surgery. It also facilitates permanent interaction because it has an alert system that facilitates proactive intervention by the medical team, if necessary, and anticipation of possible worsening of the process.

    For its part, Ritmos de Vida is the health group’s original campaign in which health and music come together to raise awareness of cardiovascular diseases and associated risk factors, with a singular and unique element: the first ever arrhythmic metronome.  Ribera has promoted the construction of a singular metronome, which swings to the “rhythm” of a sick heart, that of Adrián, a patient with arrhythmia, and which has become the axis of all the initiatives linked to this awareness-raising and health education action: a travelling exhibition of the unique metronome, which has already visited the university hospitals of Torrejón and Vinalopó, and will soon visit the rest of the group’s hospitals; musical compositions recorded to the rhythm of this metronome and concerts in healthcare centres; awareness-raising days with patients and healthy advice on the website created specifically for this purpose and its social networks, among others. Ribera has collaborated with Maart Agency, responsible for the creative idea, and with Estudio Espadaysantacruz, manufacturer of the customised arrhythmic metronome.
