Emergency Center

(1) Overview

Our hospital has been providing regional emergency medical care since September 1993 as a Secondary Emergency Medical Institution designated by Tokyo.

During regular weekday consultation hours, the Emergency Center treats patients transferred by ambulance. If patients are able to come to the hospital on their own, they may be directed to the outpatient clinic of the appropriate clinical department.

Emergency medical care is provided 24 hours a day at the Emergency Center during after-hours on weekdays, as well as on Saturdays, Sundays, national holidays, substitute holidays, and year-end and new year holidays.

Medical care is provided by physicians on duty in five clinical areas including internal medicine, surgery, cardiology, neurovascular system, and gynecology & obstetrics. Appropriate emergency medical care is provided by one of the on-duty physicians based on medical examination and various test results. On-duty physicians are able to consult with specialists if supplementary medical examination as needed.

Currently, our Center consists of on duty physicians from each department and the ICU, residents, nurses, radiology and clinical laboratory technicians, and pharmacists. Outside of weekday consultation hours, we may have limited tests and specialists available. We may also be unable to provide medical care from the relevant department, depending on the situation. However, please do not hesitate to consult us if you require medical care at night or during public holidays.

When contacting us, please provide your name and your Patient Registration Card number. First time patients should also provide their date of birth.. Thereafter, we will be able to answer any questions, including those regarding the disease you have been suffering from or the details of medications you are taking where applicable. For in-person visits, please make sure to bring your insurance card and our hospital’s Patient Registration Card. If you have been prescribed medication by another hospital, please also bring your medication notebook. Please note that if you do not have your health insurance card, you will be charged for the treatment expenses. While we always aim to treat patients as soon as possible, as the Emergency Center, we may be unable to immediately provide your treatment under the following circumstances:

  1. When there are patients with more severe diseases or injuries who require priority treatment.
  2. After consultation hours, we may not be able to do a thorough examination as we can only provide essential tests.
  3. On weekdays, we may ask patients to visit a specialist outpatient clinic instead.
  4. Generally, medication will be prescribed for approximately 3 days, but this depends on the nature of the patient’s condition and the timing of public holidays.
  5. When patient symptoms do not require immediate care, certain medical expenses may need to be paid separately. This applies regardless of the number of visits and the need for emergency transportation.

The following exceptions apply:

  • Patient with a referral letter from another hospital for an emergency visit to our hospital.
  • Patients requiring hospitalization and/or treatment after the initial examination (including those transferred from other hospitals).
  • Patients returning to the hospital within the same day after aggravation of their symptoms.
  • Patients instructed by our physicians to visit the emergency outpatient clinic.
  • When our physicians judge that a patient requires emergency care after examination.

Where possible, we recommend that patients visit the hospital during regular consultation hours, when we have full capacity.
