When Masfiv, a newly built medical centre specializing in reproductive medicine and gynaecological health in Donostia, Spain, opened its doors to the public in January 2020, little did they know they would soon be faced with a global health emergency.

The “facility of dreams” was equipped with laboratories, an operating room, and the most innovative medical technology solutions.
