Tokushukai Ltd. Tokyo Nishi Tokushukai Hospital
Director Kazunao Watanabe

Tokushukai group establishes hospitals throughout various locations in Japan. Our main purpose is to practice continuous medical care for patients 24 hours a day 365 days a year, without turning anyone away. This legacy began with, Osaka Matsubara Tokushukai Hospital which first opened in 1973.
This Tokyo Nishi Tokushukai Hospital was established in Tokyo for the first time, as the 59th hospital, in September, 2005.
In the beginning we were authorized a total of 500 sickbeds. We worked extremely hard to steadily meet that goal and in June of 2016 we were able to open 486 beds. The year, 2015 was the hospital’s tenth anniversary. However, since our final goal was yet to be accomplished we made the decision to not hold a ceremony in 2015. Instead, we held an anniversary ceremony this year. This ceremony was held to celebrate being a fully open and functional hospital and to thank those who have contributed. We wish to share our 10 years journey with the people who have made a difference because of the quality of care, we ourselves received.

This is important to note because our path hasn’t always been easy. A hospital establishment plan was made in 2001 in Musashimurayama-shi but soon became invalid in 2002. Although, this slowed down the plan, the postponement only lasted for three months in 2002, before the current hospital site was determined.
The construction started in August of 2003, and was completed in September of 2005, with great support from all of you that sympathized with the philosophy of Tokushukai during that time, your kindness ensured that this hospital still continues. It’s our history that the present staff of the hospital must not forget and it will contribute to be deeply engraved in our mind.

Hospitals that have more than 400 beds make up approximately 10% of the 800 hospitals in the whole country. We identify as one of these hospitals within the 10% and this hospital both in name and in reality show our efforts to carry out our legacy. A legacy that restores the local people’s confidence and trust. There are many excellent departments which include, Emergency medical treatment, Cardiology, Orthopedics, Plastic surgery, Oral surgery, Radiology, and Breast Oncology.
We will continue expanding our medical care departments, as well as developing new departments, including general internal medicine in the future. We will also continue medical care which is always half step ahead.
We greatly appreciate your further guidance and encouragement.
