Located in the municipality of Esplugues de Llobregat, the center has 15 single rooms, games rooms and for families, and a large garden. All rooms are equipped with special ISERN Medical professional IPTV screens for hospitals. Through them, the children hospitalized and their families can enjoy the maximum possibilities of entertainment.

"It is one of the first centers of its kind in Europe and we want it to become a reference model in the care of children with complex care needs and in need of palliative care," said the Minister of Health of the Generalitat de Catalunya, Josep Maria Argimon, during the inauguration of the facility.

The center will care children from all over Catalonia. The income will come mainly from the three large hospitals that work in the field of pediatric chronicity and palliative care: Vall d'Hebron, Parc Taulí and Sant Joan de Déu.
