Welcome to University Hospital, Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine. We are designated by the Japanese Ministry of Health as an “advanced treatment hospital”. This means that we are capable of conducting specialized and complex treatments in a safe manner. As a university hospital furthermore, education of doctors, nurses and other medical personnel takes place.
The hospital was founded in 1872 by the people of Kyoto, who wished for western medicine to become available. Just like in our early days, it is our goal to provide top level care to our region.
