The High Level Isolation Unit, which is part of the functional NBC unit, was one of the units that H.M. the King visited.


This facility, which was inaugurated last October, is designed to assist patients with highly infectious diseases requiring a strict level of isolation and biosafety. The highest quality standards and the latest international recommendations have been followed in the construction of this facility, which places it at the vanguard in Europe. Owing to this work, the "Gómez Ulla" Hospital stands at the forefront of the national hospital network, with the capability of diagnosing and treating severe infections.


These facilities are also a magnificent setting for training health professionals working in isolation units of the hospital network.
