Legal and Compliance Office

The Legal and Compliance Office specializes in ensuring that the operations of the hospital comply with laws and regulations. It provides legal advice on all aspects of the hospital’s activities and supports proper and efficient hospital management.

Overview

Advanced treatment hospitals are required to establish a “system for ensuring that the operations of the administrator of the advanced treatment hospital conform to laws and regulations” (Article 15-4, item iii (a) of the Enforcement Regulation on the Medical Care Act). At the hospital, a full-time in-house lawyer has been assigned to the General Affairs Group of the Administration Department since 2018, and has been responsible for legal and compliance functions such as legal consultation within the hospital and for developing systems in accordance with revisions to laws and regulations. In order to further expand this function, the Legal and Compliance Office was established in April 2021 as an independent organization within the hospital. It provides legal support for proper and efficient hospital management by collaborating with the Legal Affairs Group of the General Affairs Department of The University of Tokyo and departments of the hospital.

Organization

The office is staffed by a Manager (Deputy Director in charge of compliance), Deputy Manager (in-house lawyer), and administrative staff.
