- Was recognized as strengthening a base for attracting foreign patients and contributing to the development of international healthcare in Gyeonggi Province
Sejong Hospital was awarded International Medical Merit Award at the 2019 general meeting of Gyeonggi International Medical Association on Tuesday, January 22.
The award recognized its efforts to reinforce a base for attracting foreign patients by carrying out international healthcare projects actively including overseas medical promotion, overseas medical marketing, overseas medical staff training, etc. and to make contributions to the development of international healthcare in Gyeonggi Province by leading healthcare sharing such as surgery for foreign children with congenital heart disease.
In 2009 when attraction of foreign patients officially started in Korea, the Hospital set up an international medical center and was designated as ‘a medical institution for foreign patients’ by the Ministry of Health and Welfare. Since then, we at Sejong Hospital have provided specialized medical services for about 23,400 patients from other countries.
We will actively participate in various activities to promote Korea’s outstanding medical technology and offer know-how transfer and training to become a medical institution that gives hope and warm heart to patients suffering from heart disease.
