Providing safe, high-quality medical care and responding to society’s expectations as a hospital with superior functions
Since its establishment in 1899, Kyoto University Hospital has produced a wealth of talent and contributed to the advancement of medical science and medical care in Japan.
Today the hospital continues to be operated in accordance with the following basic principles as it seeks to play a core role in the local community and contribute to a global society.
1. Providing safe and high-quality medical care as a patient-centered hospital
2. Contributing to society through the development and practice of new treatments
3. Fostering medical professionals with a sense of mission, responsibility as well as compassion.
However, as the national government continues to reduce its operating expenses grants to universities, the hospital faces extremely challenging conditions. Funds generated through the hospital’s own efforts are increasingly proving to be insufficient to meet its operational needs.
The Kyoto University Hospital Fund was established in order to attract the broad-ranging support that the hospital needs to break out of this difficult situation.
