Hospital & Rehabilitation Center
Keio University has a long, distinguished tradition in medical education, with practical training dating back to the founding of Keio University hospital in 1920. Keio has since established a number of medical organizations, all adhering to the original concept of care based on three fundamentals: technique, science, and humanity. The role of Keio University medical institutions is expected to grow steadily with Japan's rapidly aging population.

Established in 1920, 3 years after the founding of Keio University Medical School, Keio University Hospital is located on the Shinanomachi Campus in central Tokyo. A leading institution of Western-style medicine in Japan, the hospital draws on the talents of Japan's most distinguished and accomplished medical professionals, practitioners, and researchers. In 1987, the hospital was greatly expanded with a new 11-story wing housing ultra-modern facilities and equipment. Some 25 specialized clinics and 14 major examination clinics currently operate round the clock in this massive 1,072-bed general hospital, which also has fully equipped laboratory, research, and medical information divisions. A synergistic relationship between all of these facilities ensures the highest level of medical care.

While Japan's rapidly aging population has made medical care for the aged, particularly rehabilitation, a top social priority, there is still a strong need for rehabilitative treatment for victims of accidents, fires, and other disasters. By overcoming illness and injury, they can rejoin society as healthy, productive citizens. To this end, Keio University operates the 170-bed Tsukigase Rehabilitation Center in a pristine natural setting in Shizuoka Prefecture. Specialties include reconstructive surgery, internal medicine, and all forms of rehabilitation.
