Shonan Kamakura General Hospital was newly built and moved to Okamoto, Kamakura City on September 2010. It has two-and-a-half-times more floor space than the crowded former hospital, and is a base-isolated... more structure with 15 stories above ground and one below, with 542 beds.
It is equipped with a helipad on the roof and in response to an increased number of emergency cases, we enlarged the emergency department 5 times, with elevators going directly to operation rooms and vascular catheter rooms. The new hospital introduced advanced medical equipments including an MRI of 3.0 tesla grade, 320 slice CT scanner and tomotherapy, the newest radiotherapy machine.
Also, doctors' offices, examination rooms, treatment rooms and patients'rooms are on the same floor, which are arranged to minimize the transference of patients and to enable quick response, which include the Heart Center, Stroke Center and Maternity Center respectively. Each floor from the 6th floor to the 14th floor encompasses a single treatment ward and each 4-patient room has a dedicated refrigerator and TV set per person with large furniture to partition the room. Window frames are located at the same level as the tables, such that patients can see the ground from their beds, and which gives the room a more open feeling.
Toilets and shower rooms are also close to the patient rooms.
We have created facilities including a Cell Processing Room for Stem-cell Transplant, regenerative medicine, oncology center, and prepared buildings and facilities for future medical treatment.
Our goal is to make a hospital that can continue to be trusted by the community and providing secure and safe healthcare. Also, we received a rating of hospital function conducive to the staff, which is called a "hospirate", as a part of fostering a better working environment where they can live worthwhile lives.
To keep practicing Tokushukai's belief of "All living beings are created equal"in Kamakura, "Twenty-four seven", "Never turn emergency cases away"and "Accept no gifts as a gift from patients". We will carry out "making a hospital through the patients'eyes".
