President Message

The Saiseikai was founded in 1911 under the "Imperial Rescript on Medicine" project by Emperor Meiji for underprivileged people. Osaka Sekai Nakatsu Hospital was established in 1916 and celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2016. During these years, we have been widely trusted by local people by providing the latest medical care and above all, safe and secure medical care.The Nakatsu Medical Welfare Center is a large general core hospital with 670 beds. The hospital consists of the following facilities.Nursing care welfare facilities: Kikujuen, Nursing care health Facility: Life Care Nakatsu, Child welfare facilities: Osaka Infant Home, Medical-care Home Facilities for Disabled Children: Osaka College of Physical Sciences, home-visit nursing stations, etc

Currently, there are about 210 doctors working in 31 medical departments, and we are treating patients with a wide range of diseases. Among them, cancer care and acute disease care are those that we focus on the most. We have established a cancer treatment support center, and we have a large number of treatments in surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. We are actively providing not only monotherapy but also collective treatment. In addition, we are working on cancer consultations and palliative care consultations from the patients’ perspective. In addition, we are working on strengthening our role as an acute care hospital in the region, such as enhancing emergency medical care and establishing an intensive care system for acute diseases such as brain, heart, and vascular diseases, pneumonia, and fractures, which have been increasing in recent years. In 2016, our hospital was recognized as the sixth in the prefecture by the DPC specified hospital group (former group II hospital) which was established by the government to have the same function as the university hospital as an acute phase hospital.

We are actively working on creating a system that protects the patients’ health by deepening cooperation with other medical institutions and facilities including local clinics with the regional communities. Recently, we have been particularly focusing on supporting patients from a multifaceted perspective so that they can live with peace of mind even after leaving our hospital in the ageing society. For this, we have established in-out patient support center that provides contiguous support considering their lives before and after discharge from hospital. Also, we have enhanced home-visit nursing stations for patients who need continual medical and nursing care at home.

Last but not least, our most important mission is to continue to provide high-quality medical care to all people in the community as a Saisei-kai hospital. We, all staff members united, will continue our efforts to be a trusted hospital for the local community.
