Aladina ICU

The new Aladina ICU is already working at full capacity!

We’ve already opened the new Aladina ICU at the Hospital Niño Jesús. This is the biggest project the foundation has carried out to date, but we still haven’t finished raising money for it. The project costs €1.5 million euros, and we still need a lot more hugs.

The new ICU has the latest technology and comfortable installations for the families, along with lots of natural light with big windows overlooking the Retiro park.

Why was it so important to reform this ICU?


  • Every year it attends more than 800 children from all around Spain.
  • It’s the ICU for the Comunidad de Madrid’s 18 public hospitals.
  • The children’s average stay is around 4 days. But for children with cancer, they may have to spend up to a month here.
  • It’s the ICU that treats the most children with cancer in all of Spain.
  • It didn’t have any natural light. The kids couldn’t tell the different between night and day and lost all sense of time.
  •  It’s the ICU that treats the most serious cases.

The ICU at Niño Jesús is the one that treats our kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews, friends, and more. It’s the ICU for all of the children in Madrid and for many more seriously ill children from all around Spain.

The new ICU has:

  • 14 beds equipped for intensive care
  • 14 robotic arms
  • 7 single stands and 1 double stand for multiple trauma
  • 6 isolation boxes
  • Lighting controls for both natural and artificial lights
  • A healthcare unit for nurses
  • Systems for energy efficiency and acoustic comfort
  • A break room for nurses
  • A storage room for equipment and rooms for cleaning and linen services and a room for the resident with its own bathroom.
