The Emergency Medical Center of Incheon Sejong Hospital proudly holds the fastest response system for patients with severe emergency cardio-cerebrovascular conditions.
Our center induced the ’24-hour Cardiovascular Emergency Center sysytem’ of Sejong Hospital exactly the way it was, which is used as a role model in many university hospitals when structuring cardiovascular centers.
The only heart-specialized hospital in Korea, our center’s system offers apt treatment at apt timing for cases of severe emergency patients with vascular diseases where every fraction of a second can count, 24-hours and 365 days.
In conformity of the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare’s 「Emergency Medical Service Act」 amendment, article 32 “Systems for Emergency Medical Treatment”, the Emergency Room of Incheon Sejong Hospital carries out ‘Specialist duty doctors system’ in the following departments.

In a hospital, safety of patients is the most important factor to keep. For this reason, thorough monitoring of infection prevention management, which is directly connected to patient safety, our center has been built to consider the line of human traffic of patients first and foremost.
The Triage of our center (the sorting ground for urgency of condition, where we first meet patients) is divided in 2 levels and strictly restricted via the access control installation.
Patient treatment areas are split, according to classification of severity, adult and child, enforcing effective patient management, not to mention screening clinics to enforce a head starts in prevention of infectious disease spreading, negative pressure isolation compartment and a general isolation compartment that are all separately operated.
The center is built with patient centered infrastructure by designing the flow of human traffic of patients with infectious disease not to correlate with that of general emergency patients inbetween transferring for tests and treatments, so as to prevent from patients in the inner areas of the Emergency Room from getting infected. Also, we offer the best medical services for the patients, for the first time in Asia, providing with the newly induced Connected Care Solution, enabling real-time monitoring of the patient’s condition. In these ways, Incheon Sejong Hospital aims to develop more and more into becoming the bst Emergency Medical Center in Asia, with state-of-the-art equipments and infection control as well as natural disaster management systems.

The the sensor adhered onto the patient passes on the information (state of patient, numerical values, everything that can be seen from the central monitor) to the doctor, who is then able to check the patient’s conditions through the mobile whenever, wherever. An immediate consulting system that enforces both mobile and offline omnidirectional medical staff without delay is structured, in case of sudden situations.
The Incheon Sejong Hospital operates what is similar to a 911 system within the hospital, the Rapid Respose Team, in order to construct an international level of safety system.
The Rapid Response Team operates on a head start to check on patients before any serious decline in health condition (when early signs of warnings show), then the department specialists are thrown in to give appropriate care
Through selective monitoring and early interventioning of patients who show signs of warnings, we do our best to secure the safety of our patients as much as possible.
As unfamiliar as it may sound, this quick response system has already gained recognition in the US and some countries in Europe as an acknowledgable patient safety system.
