Message from the Hospital Director

Greetings and welcome to the website of the University of Miyazaki Hospital.

In October 2021, I was appointed as the Director of the University of Miyazaki Hospital.
I am honored and truly humbled to take the leadership and responsibility.
As the only advanced treatment hospital in Miyazaki Prefecture, we will strive to be the last bastion of medical care for the residents of Miyazaki.

The philosophy of the University of Miyazaki Hospital is: “Contributing to society through medical care, education and research.” which is based on the slogan of the University of Miyazaki: “Look at the World; Start with the Community.”

The global pandemic caused by the new coronavirus infection has had a historic impact on our social life and economic activities. During this difficult period, our hospital has maintained the three important pillars: “medical care, education, and research” and has striven to provide a safe environment for the patients.

With the cooperation of industry-government-academia, the university hospital is now more than ever required to protect the lives and health of residents, revitalize the local community, contribute to the local community through medical care, and train medical professionals to play an active role in the local community, while conducting medical care, education, research, and implementing measures against coronavirus.

In the “with/after Corona” era, we will continue to support the health of local residents and protect their lives by practicing medical care that meets the needs of the times and by contributing to the community and society in accordance with the five basic policies of our hospital.

The five basic policies are:
1) to provide high-quality medical care
2) to strengthen regional medical cooperation and to be prepared to be a fortress of last resort
3) to develop and provide advanced medical care
4) to nurture medical professionals who are rich in humanity
5) to improve the work environment

As the core of medicine and medical care in Miyazaki Prefecture, The University of Miyazaki Hospital has been making efforts to receive patients from the rural areas of the prefecture to provide advanced care, support regional medical care, and respond to large-scale disasters, in cooperation with medical associations, governments, and medical and welfare related organizations. It is also essential to foster highly skilled young medical personnel in actual clinical practice. We would like to ask for your understanding and support for young medical professionals who are working at local clinics and hospitals.

We will continue to strive to meet the expectations of the residents by putting into practice the principles and basic policies of our university hospital, and we will continue to strive to live up to the trust of the residents of Miyazaki.
