Hospital description

Osaka University Hospital was founded in 1838 by Koan Ogata and was then known as the Tekijuku School. In 1868, the son of Koan Ogata and fellow students played a central role in the founding of the temporary Osaka Hospital and the Osaka Medical School. As of 1931 the two faculties of medicine and science were put together and the Osaka Imperial University was founded.

The university-hospital mission is “practice, education, and research” and strives to offer excellent medical care whilst contributing to the training of medical personnel and the development of treatment. At present, the hospital is expanding its ICU facilities and equipping and improving its wards. It plans to upgrade and develop cancer treatment further in 2015 by opening a new oncology center, consisting of 5 stories.

The hospital is located in Suita, a city located in northern Osaka Prefecture.
