The hospital provides medical care to an average of over 1,400 outpatients per day. The relationship of the hospital to the university was changed from being a “medical school-affiliated hospital” to “university-affiliated hospital,” and the hospital name was changed from Kumamoto University School of Medicine Hospital to Kumamoto University Hospital on April 1, 2019. Now, plans to finish redeveloping the hospital into one that provides 21st century medicine and medical care have reached the final stages with outdoor environment construction such as parking lots and promenades is scheduled to be completed in 2021. This will create a comfortable and safe environment in which to provide high-quality medical and nursing care.
