In the Menni Brain Damage Network, we bring together technical competences and human values to rehabilitate, accompany, and deliver care to brain injury patients.
Our nuns’ long-standing values -compassion, friendliness, commitment, and dedication- are brought to this service network catering for both patients and their families, combining the tradition of patient care with innovative service.
Our centres result from the combination of our tradition in patient service and a drive for innovative care.
Based on individual evaluations of patients, our multidisciplinary team designs therapy plans involving such aspects as mobility, independence in activities of daily living, communication, emotional and cognitive functions. The main goal is that patients recover as much independence as possible, and we are committed to promoting the highest level of human dignity.
The Menni Brain Damage Network focuses mainly on rehabilitation

The Nuestra Señora del Carmen Home and Hospital was established in Valencia in 1919 with the aim to host and provide medical assistance to ill girls. With time, the surgical hospital turned into a home and day care centre for the elderly, while keeping its outpatient rehabilitation service.
