About Saitama Medical University International Medical Center
In striving to create a world-class hospital, we have contributed to the advancement of medical care in Japan while at the same time valuing local medical care. “Patient-centered care” is the most important value of our hospital. We believe that the center of health care is always the patient, his/her family, and the people in the community and society. The hospital has become one of the leading hospitals in Japan in terms of the number of cases in all divisions of oncology, cardiology, and stroke. Furthermore, we are actively working to improve quality, and in February 2015, we became the first university hospital in Japan to receive JCI (Join Commission International) certification, an international hospital functionality evaluation, and we continue to renew this certification. We will continue to tirelessly pursue improvements in the quality and safety of medical care and aim to be a medical institution that is trusted by patients and the local community in all situations, including emergencies such as new coronavirus infections and large-scale disasters.
