HCB started out in the hands of the Paz Figueroa family at the time of

Benidorm’s tourism boom and services the areas first tourists. The needs were

not those of a normal hospital; the staff had to deal with patients of various

nationalities, and that is what they did. Thirty years on, HCB is a private hospital

with 400 employees of all EU nationalities, from Russia, the Near East and

South America.

Currently, HCB attends to 80% foreign patients: The majority are Europeans

resident on the Costa Blanca and little by little, it is becoming a centre of

reference for Health Tourism patients. The other 30% is made up of insured

patients and local and national private patients.
