In the category Health centers as service businesses: overall management the award was given to the work on  Ambulatory Medicine and alternatives to conventional hospitalization as a solution to the lack of hospital beds from the University Hospital of Bellvitge.

The project, presented by Dr. Xavier Corbella, Director of the HUB and the Southern Metropolitan Area of the ICS, assesses an initiative of collaboration between management and clinical management that has reduced hospital stays and therefore the admission waiting time of patients from  emergency.

Ten years later, and through the implementation of healthcare units that responded to the criteria of Major Ambulatory Medicine, only 10% of patients entering the emergency department of the hospital are finally admitted, which has significantly reduced the average hospital stay, and the center has reached a satisfactory level of quality, measured in terms of stay, mortality, complications and readmissions.
