Chairman Fumihito Hirai M.D.,Ph.D.

Fukuoka University Hospital has a mission to provide highly advanced medical services. To accomplish this mission, enhanced partnerships with regional medical institutions are required. Seamless patient care, from acute and chronic care to advanced medical treatment, is enabled by cooperation with private medical offices, general hospitals and other university hospitals. To achieve these objectives, the CHCC plays an important role as an agent of communication with other hospitals and facilities.

For each patient and their family we also strive to solve their problems and difficulties, as mentioned below:

  • Advance reservations for patients referred by regional hospitals
  • Communication with referring medical institutions
  • Consultation about discharge, and hospital transfers
  • Consultation concerning social life and economic difficulties
  • Consultation and guidance for home care services
  • Improvement of the treatment environment
  • Support for international patients
