Nippon medical school hospitalNippon Medical School Hospital is located in the Bunkyo district of Tokyo. This district, which resides in the center of Tokyo, is well known for its academic culture and historic spots. Our hospital is surrounded by a number of universities, museums and parks such as Rikugi-en, within a quiet and calm environment. Since the opening of the hospital in 1910, we have equipped with advanced medical technology aligned with highly specialized experts in each department. For more than a century, we have dedicated to our community and have been recognized in the area for highest quality of patient care.


Nippon Medical School ImageIn January 1977, we established the first medical emergency center in Japan to be authorized by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, and the center was later designated for “Advanced Critical Care Center”. In 1993 we were authorized by the Ministry of Health and Welfare as the “Advanced Treatment Hospital”, and in 2010 as the regional hub medical institution for cancer treatment. For many years, we have put an enormous effort to enhance quality of care and have gained experience in clinical research and clinical education.

For outpatient care, we have recently established General Medicine Center, which provides high quality care to outpatients with efficiency and quick response. Through these efforts, we are conducting medical care to fulfill diverse medical needs in our community.


We believe in the importance of fostering a relationship of trust with patients and highly value teamwork with other professionals. We will continue to work hard and to enhance cooperation with other medical institutions in order to provide patients with highest quality medical care.
