Message from the Superintendent

Kyorin University Hospital is the only university hospital main campus in the Tama area of western Tokyo; an advanced acute care hospital that provides advanced medical treatment; and one of 85 special functioning hospitals in Japan with development, assessment, and training capabilities.
Our Trauma and Critical Care Center represents one of only four center in Tokyo and serves the entire Tama area, home to a third of the metropolis’s population. We are open 24 hours a day to provide highly specialized care for emergencies in the Maternal and Perinatal Center and the Stroke Care Unit, and primary and secondary emergency care for patients with low to moderate acuity conditions. Needless to say, we also treat patients with refractory and chronic conditions in specialized clinical departments. For details about each of our clinical departments, kindly refer to the hospital website.
Our philosophy at Kyorin University Hospital is “to provide patients with heartfelt, high-quality medical care.” In order to fulfill this philosophy, we accept new patients without a referral letter (with the exception of certain outpatient departments), provide outpatient treatment on Saturdays, organize regular sessions of outpatient consultation for a second opinion, and show full consideration for patient rights. All of our staff members work as one to ensure that patients feel safe and secure while receiving quality medical care.
