In January 2023, the Amancio Ortega Foundation and the NIPACE Foundation unveiled the design of the new European Centre for Neurological Rehabilitation. With construction financed by a budget of 19 million euros from the Amancio Ortega Foundation, the centre will be managed by NIPACE, an organisation that focuses its efforts on enhancing the quality of life of people with cerebral palsy and neuromotor disorders.
Like the NIPACE Foundation headquarters, the new centre will be located in Guadalajara and will span roughly 6,300 m2 of a 9,600 m2 plot donated by the Guadalajara City Council.
It will feature dedicated spaces for cutting-edge rehabilitation treatments, including robotic therapies, hydrotherapy, Snoezelen stimulation, speech therapy, occupational therapy and psychology, as well as consultation rooms. A stand-out feature is the individualised care rooms for intensive specialised neutorehabilitation (INR) therapies, which are equipped with multiple robotics and digitalised technology areas to offer ground-breaking applications in rehabilitation with demonstrated results.
The centre will also boast areas designated for training and research, alongside facilities for complementary services (dining rooms, lounges, meeting rooms, boardrooms, changing rooms and more).
Opening the new centre will give the NIPACE Foundation the tools it needs to address the health and care needs of children and young people from across Spain who are currently receiving treatment (250 permanent patients) and extend care to the many other others currently on the waiting list for assessment.
