Clinica Santa Elena


A leading private hospital in Los Alamos, Torremolinos, 2 miles from Malaga International Airport.


Established in 1970, has a long tradition of excellence and personalised care, attending local population, expatriates and tourists alike. Many members of the staff are from different nationalities, thus in most cases there are no language barriers.


The hospital has 45 private rooms and 4 suites with ensuite bathrooms, digital TV, Free WiFi access and all modern facilities. It offers all medical and surgical specialties, and is equipped with the latest technology (Digital Radiology, Multislice CT-Scanner, Open MRI, Cardiac Catheter Lab...).


The hospital has a 24 hour A&E Department, and round-the-clock resident medical officer. 


There are 3 Orthopaedic Outpatient Consulting Rooms, with direct access to the Radiology Department. There is a Minor Injury Unit and Plaster Room.

The new Surgical Wing, opened in 2009, has 4 modern Operating Theatres (OT), 2 of them with Laminar Airflow System (the only OTs in any public or private hospital in the Costal del Sol with this infection-control feature). These have been particularly designed for complex orthopaedic procedures, and are used for all joint arthroplasty operations, in order to minimise infection risks.


A state-of-the art Intensive Care Unit with 7 individual boxes is available when required in the perioperative period.


The Physiotherapy Department collaborates closely with the Orthopaedic Team and provides day-to-day rehabilitation services.
