Message from the Director
IUHW Mita hospital is located in the heart of Tokyo which is poised to become an even more international city in the lead-up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2020. Mita hospital has recently received a globally recognized accreditation form the Joint Commission International (JCI) in December 2015.
Building on this momentum, Mita Hospital will continue to develop into a more international hospital by ensuring patient-oriented care, which is the essence of our medical profession, and by providing advanced and quality medical care to further elevate the level of medical care available at the hospital.
Mita Hospital has been enhancing its functions as a medical care provider. In 2015, the Stroke and Neuro-endovascular Surgery Center was opened to meet diversifying medical needs. We now have a hybrid operating room that integrates angiography equipment and an operating room for performing direct surgeries (surgeries in which a scalpel is used to cut). We also established a Transplant Surgery Department and have begun performing living donor renal transplantations. In 2016, we created the Hematology Department and are further improving our hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgical treatment. Mita Hospital is committed to continuing its efforts to consistently provide more sophisticated medical care to patients.
We hope you are as excited as we are about the improvements, and we thank you for your patronage.
