"In general URIs as defined by RFC 3986 may contain any of the following characters: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789-._~:/?#[]@!$&'()*+,;=. Any other character needs to be encoded with the percent-encoding (%hh). Each part of the URI has further restrictions about what characters need to be represented by an percent-encoded word."

I've used # as a place holder in href tags, and doesn't link anywhere (no data transfer protocol).  

Also, in the URL you pointed out above,

http://www.mednaclinic.com/#!/pageMission         # is just a character in the URL, it's not the page being called.   In this URL we are looking for an "index" within a directory called "pageMission", within a directory called "#!".   # is a valid character, but without a protocol and domain, is just a valid character.

So  " if i do a href="#!/pageMission" this would redirect me to the pageMission page? "

Yes, relatively on that domain.
