Synopsis

Patients Beyond Borders is pleased to announce the release of FOCUS ON: Kameda Medical Center (KMC), profiling one of Japan’s leading private healthcare facilities. FOCUS ON: KMC addresses Kameda’s implementation of global trends, its “Say Yes” concierge services, and its top specialties: oncology, Breast Center, sports medicine, cardiology, interventional neuroradiology, spine surgery, and second-opinion services.

Japan’s first and only JCI-accredited hospital, Kameda boasts a 350-year history through eleven generations of the Kameda family. The 925-bed medical center is one of the largest private hospitals in Japan and is nationally accredited as well as ISO certified. While principally serving citizens of Japan and the immediate region, KMC also serves the medical traveler, welcoming more than 200 international patients in 2009. More than 10% of its 450 fulltime physicians have had postgraduate training abroad, mostly in the United States.

"We look forward to participating in this dynamic new program," says John Wocher, executive vice president and director of International Patient Services at KMC. "This effort will allow us to proactively promote our facility to the international traveler with up-to-date, interactive information on our medical specialties, pricing, and the quality and safety of our medical services."

About Kameda Medical Center: KMC is a 925-bed private healthcare facility located approximately 80 kilometers southeast of Tokyo, on the Boso Peninsula. Family owned, this fully modern medical center has an ocean-view restaurant, delicatessen, 24/7 convenience store, coffee shop, and more. Kameda’s electronic medical information system has been totally paperless and filmless since 1994. KMC’s Centers of Excellence offer a wide range of services, solutions, and technologies in a healing environment with hotel-like surroundings; 370 of the inpatient rooms are private and boast Pacific Ocean views (suites are also available).
