Tenerife hospitals are as good as any in the world. I've had dealings with two of them and can readily endorse their efficiency and service.
Here's a comprehensive list, with as much information as I can find:
Hospital De La Candelaria
To give it its full title, the Hospital Universitario Nuestra Señora de Candelaria is found on the Carretera del Rosario in Santa Cruz. It is a famous hospital and, during my stint living in Tenerife, I've known a few people with serious, chronic illnesses being transfered to this hospital - and successfully treated.
Telephone: (+34) 922 602000
Found on Carretera Cuesta-Taco in La Laguna, this is a typical large hospital, attached to the famous university.
Telephone: (+34) 922 678000
Costa Adeje Hospital
In the Urbanizacion San Eugenio in Adeje, this is a small private hospital. Alison had a broken rib treated there and her son had a gashed knee stitched. Very friendly staff.
Telephone: (+34) 922 752626
Website: apparently down at the moment.
This large hospital in the centre of Las Americas, also known as "The Green Hospital", is one I've stayed in for a couple of weeks. It is as good as any you'll find throughout the world and has interpreters standing by so that the doctors can communicate with you. It is one of several Hospiten hospitals throughout Tenerife.
Telephone: (+34) 922 750022
