Hospital Director's Greetings

Yoshiaki Kiuchi
Hospital Director

Hiroshima University Hospital is one of the best medical institutions in Japan known for its advanced medical technology. It’s also the only medical school located in Hiroshima prefectural region. Holding the ideology of fulfilling the mission of implementing holistic medical care, developing health professions, and pursuing new technology, we put our best continuing effort into medical treatment, education, and study.
By demanded tasks of society, the roles and functions as university hospitals are experiencing increasing changes day by day. Hiroshima University Hospital will continue to implement these changes as we raise the ideal characteristics that university hospitals should hold in the future.

Currently, the most required changes which should be established are in medical safety, medical ethics, and research ethics. In order to perform these changes, improving the quality of medical education is necessary so that our focus is on rearranging organizational and human infrastructure, but also to strengthen safety management and medical/research ethics system. Moreover, configuring an indicator for medical quality, and evaluating/improving our consultation, we will open its results to society.

Propelling the study and the development of highly advanced medical treatment to provide patients safely is also a definite goal to achieve. Rearranging the foundation in secure human resources for the study and the development of high technology medical treatment cannot be ignored.

Also, work style reform, improvement in response capability in the event of a disaster, and stabilization of hospital management are important concerns that we hold as an institution.

In conclusion, we, staff of Hiroshima University Hospital, unitedly put our best effort to complete the mission of what an “university hospital” should be. We would appreciate your continued understanding and support.
