Since its inception as a clinic in 1919 in the district of Tenjin, Saiseikai Fukuoka General Hospital has conducted community-based healthcare and welfare activities as one of the leading medical institutions with a long history of service in Fukuoka.
As stated in our hospital outline, our founding organization, Saiseikai, was established by an imperial rescript of Emperor Meiji with the aim of “offering a helping hand to people who live in poverty.” Throughout its history, Saiseikai Fukuoka General Hospital has devoted itself to “offering a helping hand” to people in need through various initiatives. Specifically, our predecessors at the hospital offered free healthcare services to those living in poverty. During the days following the end of World War II, we provided medical care for institutions accommodating war orphans and repatriates. In the ensuing years, we also started seeing patients living in doctorless areas and remote islands in Fukuoka.
Today, the Fukuoka and Itoshima Secondary Medical Area in which our hospital operates has one of the best healthcare delivery systems in Japan. Moreover, thanks to various government measures, we have fewer and fewer doctorless areas. Against this background, the role our hospital is expected to play is changing rapidly.
In line with our basic principle of “creating a hospital that is deeply trusted by local citizens and medical professionals and that gives them genuine satisfaction,” we pursue the following four basic goals: “In the spirit of ‘Saisei’ (Saving Lives), we provide high-quality and safe medical care,” “We enhance our emergency medical care,” “We promote highly specialized medical care,” and “ We ensure stronger partnerships among local medical providers. Toward these goals, we operate our emergency care unit as a tertiary emergency medical institution, strengthen the cooperation among medical providers as a hospital supporting community healthcare, and enhance cancer care systems as a Cancer Treatment Affiliate Activity Base Hospital.
We believe that all these efforts to contribute to the local community and save lives constitute “Saisei” in today’s context.
As times change, we will continue to provide community-based medical care in a way that best answers the needs of the local citizens and society.
