Integrated Care

As science and technology advances, it is important that we remain focused on patient centered care as health care becomes more and more specialized and fragmented. This involves treating each patient as an individual, and also providing a healing environment in which the patient can feel at ease, both physically and mentally. Furthermore, we provide integrated care in a team environment, by creating a consultation system in which specialists from each department can cooperate and share information.

Quality of Care

In order to provide a world-class standard of care, we constantly strive to improve the quality and management of care.

Easily Understood Care

By providing patients with clear, ample and easy to understand explanations of examinations, treatments and surgery, the patient is able to choose their preferred treatment method and receive treatment with their informed consent. Effective patient communication is very important to us, and we always try to maximize patient participation in our practice of medicine.

Employee Development

Along developing medical staff with advanced technical knowledge and a human touch, we nurture professionals with a global perspective, who will support future generations.
