President’s Greeting

issei tanaka

Thank you for visiting Shizuoka General Hospital’s homepage.

Renowned for its outstanding services in specialized and acute care medicine, Shizuoka General Hospital also is committed to ensuring exceptional community health care.

Major progress is being made to meet these high standards set by the Hospital’s faculty.

In September 2017, the Medical Frontier Center opened with 22 Operating Rooms, including five rooms dedicated to endoscopic surgery and two rooms devoted to robot surgical support. In addition, there are four Radiation Therapy rooms as well as PET Imaging Center with three units of PET Imaging equipment adjoined to that. We are pleased to tell you that the Radiation Therapy Rooms include the most advanced equipment and hybrid space that allow also for Angiograms, Computerized Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans.

The Medical Frontier Center is committed to the education and training of its medical staff. This also includes the ongoing education and training of medical staff at the Research Support Center.

We also value regional collaboration among hospitals. Thanks to subsidy from the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Fujinokuni Virtual Mega-Hospital (Fujinokuni Net), began full operations in 2011, and, the system has been supported by the national insurance since 2016. It is now on a firm footing, and we look forward to further developments that contribute to regional medical education and care of patients.

As the premier medical organization in Shizuoka Prefecture, we are dedicated to the ongoing training of doctors, staff and students, and will continue to advance safety and cooperation with family doctors, community hospitals and other healthcare facilities.

With your support and understanding, we will move forward in our mission to provide “quality holistic medical care that is reliable and gives peace of mind to all patients.” Thank you.
