Kumamoto University Hospital comprises medical examination departments, a pharmaceutical department, a nursing department, and central consultation facilities, among other features. The hospital has 845 beds and over 1,300 outpatients per day.
The hospital is currently advancing redevelopment plans such as the opening of a new Outpatient Building in September 2014, with the aim of constructing a university hospital that will be able to handle the
medical science and medical care needs of the 21st century. Through this, the hospital is promoting the establishment of a comprehensive medical care system that combines advanced medical treatment and
comprehensive holistic medical treatment. As a part of this, the divisions of medical treatment shifted to an overall medical care system categorized by each internal organ and body system starting in January 2004. Additionally, the hospital was designated as a Center of Prefectural Cancer Treatment and Center of Liver Disorder Treatment.
As the only Advanced Treatment Hospital in Kumamoto prefecture, the hospital is now focusing on improving the standards of healthcare for the local community.
