This hospital was established in 1948 with the transfer of management rights from the Japan Association for Medical Hospitals to the Japanese Red Cross Society. For the past 75 years, we have continued to work to strengthen our emergency and acute care systems.
We have also worked hard to cooperate closely with local clinics and hospitals. In 2006, this hospital was designated as a Regional Medical Care Support Hospital. Currently, the hospital has many other designations, such as an Emergency Unit, a Regional Cancer Treatment Cooperative Base Hospital in Chiba Prefecture (re-designated in April 2023), and a disaster base hospital.
As a high-functioning hospital, we have seven function-specific centers: The Regional Perinatal Medical Center, Stroke Unit, Spine and Surgery Center, Allergy and Clinical Immunology Center, Lung Cancer Treatment Center, Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplanation Center, and Clinical Research Center.
As the only Red Cross hospital in Chiba Prefecture, we also have provided disaster relief and emergency medical services in Japan during major disasters such as the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, Niigata Chuetsu Earthquake in 2004, the 2007 Chuetsu Offshore Earthquake, and the Great East Japan Earthquake. We are also fully prepared for large-scale earthquakes which are predicted in the future. Furthermore, we have dispatched doctors and nurses overseas to participate in activities such as disaster relief after the 2005 Kashmir Earthquake, healthcare support in the Philippines, aid for victims of the military conflict in Pakistan, and disaster relief after the 2010 Haiti Earthquake.
Moreover, as a hospital adjacent to Narita Airport, beds are on hand for patients with designated infectious diseases. These beds are set up in only four medical institutions in Japan. As one such institution, our hospital is a part of the system organized to immediately respond to infectious disease threats from overseas.
Our goal is to support our patients and their families by providing attentive medical care as we guide them on their path to recovery. Guided by this principle, human resources are trained with an emphasis on improving the skills of our staff members. Key Goal Indicators (KGI) and Key Performance Indicators (KPI) performance evaluation methods have been introduced in order to establish a system where each staff member can perform their duties based on independent thinking.
The entire staff will continue to do its best to provide safer and more advanced medical care to the residents of the region while remaining committed to our basic philosophy of "warm medical care."
