High-Quality and Reliability

Center for Preventive Medicine of Saiseikai Kumamoto Hospital provides each one of our customers with high-quality preventive medical care with a spirit of empathy.

From Treatment to Prevention

In recent years, medical care has been advancing day by day together with the development of new drugs and minimally invasive surgeries. However, a delayed detection of disease may require invasive surgeries or more time for treatment, and sometimes become too late. In order to avoid these unfavorable circumstances, it is important to prevent diseases by detecting minor physical changes at an early stage and treat them immediately.

We Keep Managing Customers’ Health by Providing High-Quality
Preventive Medical Care

Technological innovation and the development of medical equipment in the healthcare sector have made remarkable progress, and AI-equipped testing/diagnostic devices have been developed and became more and more popular. Our center has introduced the latest equipment such as AI-equipped diagnostic device for chest area and AI-supported colonoscopy to perform high-quality, customer-friendly examinations with specialists. Moreover, skilled public health nurses, dietitians and fitness instructors offer customized health management plans to prevent diseases.

We Protect Customers’ Health Together with the Community as a Unity,Building Relationship of Mutual Trust
