On behalf of the staff here at Hiroshima City Asa Citizens Hospital, I would like to thank you very much for visiting our website. Asa Hospital stands at the entrance to the Chugoku Mountains approximately 15 km north of the center of the City of Hiroshima. Located near the Chugoku Expressway and Sanyo Expressway interchanges, our hospital serves as the flagship hospital for a large regional area extending from the northern part of the city to the northwest part of Hiroshima Prefecture as well as parts of Shimane Prefecture.
The Hospital opened in 1980 with six clinical departments and 190 beds, and gradually our functions increased to 17 clinical departments and 527 beds in 1992. Since then, we have grown to become an acute general hospital with 29 clinical departments.
We are also working to help educate medical professionals, having been recognized as a certified training institution for 48 medical societies while continuing to contribute to local health care, having received 25 institutional designations.
Our hospital ensures emergency health care for the region by receiving countless urgent care patients and providing response for myocardial infarctions, strokes and other time-sensitive emergencies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year as a regional core base hospital. We also provide the latest cancer treatment to our many cancer patients as a nationally-designated local cancer treatment cooperation base hospital. In addition, with the aging of society, we have a strong track record treating degenerative diseases, starting with our spinal surgery department.
To confidently provide health care for such a wide range of diseases, our hospital has received designation both as a local health care support hospital and a disaster base hospital, and we continue to make efforts to promote local medical collaboration and build a local complete health care system with the goal of becoming a health care facility that is relied upon in time of need.
It goes without saying that precedence of health care is on the patients. Our staff members listen carefully to the pains and worries of our patients, diagnose diseases, thoroughly explain the appropriate treatment, and provide care with the understanding and consent of the patient. Health care is formed through mutual cooperation between our hospital staff and the patient. We are continually working to provide medical care in an earnest manner, with devotion and ceaseless aspiration, based on our philosophy of a “spirit of affection and sincerity” in the hope that everyone will enjoy a healthy body and sound mind.
This website provides a guide to our clinical departments and contains the latest information on the functions and achievements of the hospital. We hope the information provided here helps you.
