Message from Our President

Aiming for a hospital that can obtain peace of mind, reliability, and satisfaction

In response to Japan’s aging population, the environment for medicine as well as the quality of medical care itself is undergoing major changes. Japan’s super-aging society and declining birthrate will pose an increasingly serious problem in the 21st century. Therefore, there is an increasing need to strengthen coordination between medical care and nursing care in response to changing medical needs due to the ageing of the society.

As part of actions to enhance and strengthen our sustainable growth strategy, Hiroshima Memorial Hospital is specializing in treatment and medical research in the gastroenterological disease areas. We have established Digestive Disease Center in 2016, in order to provide comprehensive healthcare solutions ranging from diagnosis to treatment of disease. Furthermore, we will eliminate the need for patients to wait days between diagnosis and treatment, and in fact, providing treatment at the diagnostic stage would eliminate the need for hospitalization in the first place, all of which would drive significant reductions in medical costs. We will continue to move forward consistently, striving to be a leading hospital that is trusted by the local community.

Increasing need to strengthen coordination between medical care and nursing care in response to changing medical needs due to the ageing of the society, we will provides integrated services, aiming at the development of domestic and global healthcare networks of enterprises that provide preventive care and medical care.

As a regional central hospital, where the rapid growth of healthcare demand is expected as a result of aging and changes in lifestyle, we provide inpatients medical care for patients who receive home healthcare, and also enhance the environment for providing support in the home through strong partnership with your primary care doctors.

In response to future challenges, we will act in a manner to earn the satisfaction and trust of patients, and continue pursuing state of the art medical care that keep us ahead of the curve and will fulfill our role in society with pride and resolve. Improving health care is an ongoing mission at Hiroshima Memorial Hospital. It requires us always to take note of where we are, and how to be even better.

Thank you.
