​On the other hand, Bucheon Sejong Hospital began the integrated nursing and care service in July 2013 for the first time in order to create a safe and pleasant ward environment, and this service was applied to all wards in the hospital in July 2014. It led to high satisfaction of patients and guardians, and the exemplary service operation was accredited as the hospital was awarded a commendation from the Minister of Health and Welfare.
