We provide patient-centered,
Specialized and highly advanced medical services.
Fujita Health University Hospital was established in 1973 based on the founder, Keisuke Fujita’s philosophy, "With infinite sympathy for the afflicted, we provide medical care at all times without self-praise or self-satisfaction." Today, with 40 departments and the largest number of hospital beds in Japan, the hospital has been enhancing its functions to promote medical technology advancement, internationalization of medicine, and contribution to community medical care. At the same time, we promote education for "good medical professionals" and research activities as a university hospital. In the area of cancer treatment, we introduced Da Vinci surgical robot in 2008, a very early stage in Japan, and we are now ready to handle almost all areas where robotic surgery is possible. In addition, the clinical application of "hinotori“, the first domestically produced surgical support robot, has started smoothly, and we are conducting demonstration tests of remote surgery as a further innovative initiative.
In foreign patient care, the hospital has been designated a base hospital for accepting foreign patients and has obtained certification for accepting foreign patients (JMIP, Japan International Hospitals) and JCI certification, which proves international standards for medical quality and patient safety. While promoting advanced medical care as an Advanced Treatment Hospital, our hospital has a mission as a core hospital that serves as a bastion for community medicine. In April 2021, Aichi Prefecture designated Fujita Health University Hospital as an Advanced Emergency Medical Center, providing advanced tertiary emergency medical services. In a major earthquake or other emergencies, we can also serve as a critical hospital for medical rescue activities as a Core Disaster Base Hospital.
In response to COVID-19 pandemic, we have been utilizing our experience in accepting passengers on cruise ships at the Okazaki Medical Center to implement complete infection prevention measures at our hospitals. At the same time, we introduced Japan's first automated PCR testing system by robots and opened the large-scale vaccination site under the system for disaster medical care. We will continue to safely provide advanced medical care of the highest quality as a university hospital with the highest level of patient satisfaction, and we hope to contribute to the community and the advancement of medicine.
