We are proud to have our highly specialized experts and cutting-edge medical technology, which enables us to offer state-of-the-art comprehensive medical care.
 As a general local-oriented hospital, we have a networking system with other medical institutions and private clinics in the community. We have a close relationship with them, and we make it possible to enhance excellence in patient care and serve the needs of our patients and the community.

Our mission & value
 Our mission is to provide the care which is worth being trusted by patients and the community. Based on the 7 principles of the Red Cross, we will continue every effort to deliver the best care under the spirit of humanity.
 Furthermore, as a member of the Japanese Red Cross Society, we are actively engaged in medical care in time of disasters and calamities locally, nationally, and globally. Each year we send our personnel for relief and rescue operations to many different affected areas in and out the country. We value every single aspect of life, health, and human dignity.

 For the benefit of the local community, we have a variety of free programs such as public awareness for a better life and the prevention of various diseases. Our specialists (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and nutritionists) hold lectures and help extend knowledge for well-being in the community. We aim to help improve and sustain our healthier community.

 Since 2019, JRCFH has been accredited by the JMIP (Japan Medical Service Accreditation for International Patients) as a medical institution which meets the standard for “safe and reliable medical services for international patients.” We will do our best to improve the situation for international patients who need language assistance and any other help.

 We promise that we will continue to advance the very best care for our patient needs based on mutual trust and humanity.
