To Expand Medical Care for the Future

With a history of more than 150 years, the University of Tokyo Hospital has been and continues to be a driving force in medicine and medical care in Japan.
As the hospital pursues its mission of striving to “contribute to the advancement of clinical medicine and the cultivation of healthcare professionals, in order to provide each patient with the best medical care,” there have been increasing social expectations of this hospital to act as a last bastion in the midst of mounting concerns of a medical crisis.
Conversely, the severity of our hospital’s financial situation has increased each year. In our efforts to continue providing the best and most advanced medical care, as well as a foster healthcare environment that will continue to exuberantly offer hospitality and peace of mind to each and every patient in the future, we have established the University of Tokyo Hospital Foundation.
As we recognize the support our hospital receives from patients and their families in our efforts to expand medical care for the future, we would like to also ask for your valuable assistance and cooperation with the University of Tokyo Hospital Foundation.

Director Yasuyuki Seto

All donations made to the University of Tokyo Hospital Foundation will be treated with the utmost respect and care and used for the following purposes:

Purchasing the Latest Medical Equipment

To meet various medical needs, including critical care medicine, palliative medicine, organ transplantation, robotic surgery, disaster medical care, and intractable disease care, we will purchase state-of-the-art medical equipment and utilize it to provide optimal medical care that will improve the quality of life of every patient.

Fostering Medical Staff

We will support doctors, nurses and other medical staff in developing their professional careers. As a university hospital, we will also encourage medical staff interested in research-related work.

Improving Hospital Services/Environments

In 2017, a new ward is scheduled to open to meet the needs of our super-aged society. Donations will also be used to further improve critical care medicine, pediatric and perinatal care, complete medical checkups, as well as provide for other facilities. There are plans to open a cafe and a conversation lounge where patients, their family members, and other visitors can relax and feel peace of mind.
