Director,Ashikaga Red Cross Hospital
 Thanks to local support, Ashikaga Red Cross Hospital, which opened on July 1, 2011, has smoothly established itself within the community. The issues faced by the former hospital have been resolved with the creation of single-occupancy rooms for comfortable recuperation, and by establishing a strong disaster management plan built around a quake-absorbing architecture.  As such, we are now able to provide everyone with peace and security during their stay. In addition, with the increase in the number of patients and the improvement in our bed occupancy ratio compared to the former hospital, we believe we are gradually solidifying the hospital’s financial foundation, too.
 We view this as the successful result of each staff member taking part in experiencing the enormous project of literally building a new hospital, while at the same time reflecting on the questions of “How do we gain and sustain the trust of our patients and the community as their main local hospital?” and “What can each workplace do to create the ideal hospital?”
 We are happy to note that over 3,000 people from various fields have visited us since the opening of the new hospital.  We hope to continue to be referred to by our visitors as their “model” hospital. On the other hand, we believe that in order to be more firmly established and a truly trusted member of the community, the hospital must not become self-satisfied with the status-quo, but that it needs to continue to seek improvement. Since providing all of our patients with safe, reliable medical care is our highest priority, in February 2015 we obtained the certification of the Joint Commission International, which is the internationally recognized organization for certifying medical facilities. Our goal, as the central hospital for the Ryomo region, is to strengthen coordination with other members of the regional medical community and to engage in the further enhancement of emergency, disaster relief, perinatal and other medical care delivery systems. We thus aspire to fulfill our core mission of creating a hospital where patients are satisfied with their treatment and staff members can take pride in their workplace.  Your continued support would be appreciated.
