To further the separation of prescribing and dispensing functions as the MHLW instructs, in principle, we try to provide our outpatients with prescriptions to be filled at outside pharmacies.

Welcoming a New Baby!

Mother and child image

KUH is ready to care for the prenatal mother for the entire duration of her pregnancy from labor to birth, and through the postnatal period. In addition to two LDR rooms in our obstetrics ward, there are a total of 20 beds for mothers and another 20 beds in the neonate ward.

Because ours is a university-affiliated hospital, the majority of our prenatal mothers are here because they either show signs of premature labor or have complications. However, there are still many babies who are born naturally.

We receive requests almost every day from all over Japan to accept admissions of mothers and neonates. Our entire perinatal medical team including physicians, midwives and nurses work together to provide safe and rapid medical care to mothers, fetuses and neonates.

Introducing Our Clinical Facilities

Clinical facilities

Here is an explanation of our clinical facilities.

If this is your initial consultation, please bring a medical referral letter. As a tertiary hospital with over 200 beds, we reqiure the first time visitor to our hospital to submit a medical referral document from your previous doctor explaining the course of your illness and other relevant medical information. If you do not have the referral letter, you will be required to pay an extra special fee called "Fee for Treatment of Patient's Choice", in addition to the standard initial consultation fee. You will be billed the amount stated below and this fee is generally not covered by health insurance.
Notes: Special Fee for Initial Consultations: 10,800 yen
