Since our founding in 1937, Sanno Hospital has made history as a pioneering private hospital with a culture of openness, reassurance, and compassion. Now we offer medical examinations and treatments as Junwakai affiliated hospitals through Sanno Hospital, Sanno Birth Center, and Sanno Medical Center.
Sanno Hospital and Sanno Birth Center have around 80 full-time doctors for a total of 98 beds. We also retain a large number of part-time doctors who excel in their area of expertise and offer high-quality medical services to our patients and clients.
We completed construction of the New Building in 2015, increased outpatient consultation offices and operation rooms, and introduced sophisticated medical equipment to further enhance both our outpatient and surgical departments. In the outpatient department, we provide medical treatment through our unique system, which combines the conventional departments of medicine and interprofessional centers including the Center for Human Reproduction & Gynecologic Endoscopy, and the Pulmonary Disease Center. For example, at the Pulmonary Disease Center, physicians and surgeons work together across the disciplines of Internal Medicine and Surgery to realize patient-oriented teambased medicine. The operating rooms added in the New Building accommodate various surgical needs including state-of-the-art minimally invasive surgery with the robotic surgery system “da Vinci”. The newly opened Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) enables childbirth in an even safer and more secure environment. We collaborate with the International University of Health and Welfare Mita Hospital, an affiliate hospital within Minato-ku, to offer a comprehensive medical service system.
At Sanno Hospital, we believe that medical care and services should be provided above all for the benefit of patients. We devote ourselves to providing patient-oriented medical services in line with the Sanno Philosophy.
Thank you for your continued support, guidance and encouragement.
