Message from the Director

The advancement of medical care has enabled treatment that was impossible only a few years ago. Nevertheless, that progress does not mean that a disease or the body can be restored to its pre-onset conditions. It is becoming common that people live with illness and various side effects. From now on, it will increasingly necessary to provide medical care and nursing care with a view to life after discharge from hospital and to cooperation with the local community.
Okayama University Hospital strives to protect life, making full use of cutting-edge medical and nursing care as an advanced acute care hospital. At the same time, we are engaged in nursing care to support living by which a patient can maintain daily life activities after returning home or to a facility.
