The history of the Clinic goes back to the year 1881, when Dr. Alfredo Serralta i Fatjó was licensed by the Faculty of Medicine of Barcelona (1876-1881). In the following years, he developed his career in the Spanish province of Cuba, where he had to participate as a doctor with the Spanish army in the War of Independence, sharing ranks with Santiago Ramón y Cajal. During his stay in Cuba he had to face diseases such as yellow fever and malaria. These diseases were so aggressive, they cause more casualties than those generated by the enemy troops. In 1898, after the American invasion of the island, he returned to Barcelona where he continued to practice his profession.
Later, in 1909-1915, his son Dr. Eugenio Serralta i Serralta inherited his vocation. He graduated as a doctor at the Faculty of Medicine of Zaragoza. For love, he came back to Valencia to practice medicine, combining clinical practice in the old General Hospital of Valencia with his private practice specialized in eye diseases, to highlight, his treatises published on the treatment of trachoma. This clinic, located at Pascual i Genís street, number 5, can be considered the first location of Clínica Serralta in Valencia.
The current facilities headed by Dr. Alfonso Serralta Serra, are located in Embajador Vich Street, which were established in 2002, having grown to offer hospital care services at Hospital 9 de Octubre, Hospital Virgen del Consuelo and Hospital Valencia al Mar.

Their health services of both clinics are included under GRUPO SERRALTA, a big team of specialists in constant evolution.
