Providing Medical Care as the Main Community Hospital in Eastern Hiroshima City

Mazda Hospital

[Japan] Mazda Motor Corporation

Founded on the principle of "providing the best and most up-to-date medical care, and contributing to society with warmth and kindness of heart," Mazda Hospital is committed to community contribution by providing healthcare as a core community hospital in eastern Hiroshima City. Though established by a private company, Mazda Hospital is well used by local residents, who now account for 85% of outpatients and 97% of inpatients.

In addition, Mazda hospital is actively working to improve regional medical care by providing hands-on training for students who want to pursue a career in medical care, and holding health classes and lectures for local residents. Other activities include training exchanges with local practitioners, joint disaster training with related organizations, and case review meetings with emergency services.

Mazda Hospital also conducts joint collaborative training with related organizations, in order to promptly provide stable medical care at local hospitals and support to the community in the event of a disaster.
In FY2017, we participated in a "Nurse Joint Dispatch Simulation for Providing Support during Disaster" sponsored by the Japanese Nursing Association, to train to respond promptly to requests for support in a disaster. In addition, we installed disaster prevention radios that allow two-way communication with the Fuchu-cho Town Hall during a disaster.
