Since 1870 … at the Health Service
Pedro Prim Fernández, an orthopaedic surgeon and specialist in rehabilitation, founded PRIM in the late 19th century (1870). He was a pioneer who imbued his small business with his vision and work ethic. Not content to set up a prosthetics workshop, in his search for comprehensive treatment options, he went so far as to establish a spa in Alsasua (Navarra). In order to go beyond merely fitting prosthetics, he pursued his patients’ wellbeing by providing a full range of care: diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation.
Even then, he adopted a full-service approach, focusing on quality of service and providing healthcare that was both professional and compassionate. His philosophy was a key factor that enabled the company to play an important role in the development of Spain’s medical and hospital supply industry.
