EMBT has broken ground on Kálida Sant Pau, a new cancer treatment center located in Barcelona, Spain. Led by EMBT co-founder Benedetta Tagliabue, the pioneering project will provide practical, emotional and social support to patients that complements more conventional medical treatment. The latest project in the Maggie’s Center global network, the center will offer free programs that are “accessible and provided in a warm and welcoming purpose built space where you can ask questions and seek advice in order to feel supported, informed and understood.” Kálida Sant Pau will be located on a site adjacent to, but separated from, the Hospital’s Oncology Wing, to put patients in a relaxing environment and to allow easy access from the hospital for both patients and visitors. Within, private spaces will allow patients to talk with experienced nurses, psychologists and therapists, while public areas and an outdoor garden will provide a calming environment to foster mental well-being.
