National Cancer Center Hospital

Since its establishment in 1962, the National Cancer Center Hospital has been providing world-class medical treatment as a cancer-specialized hospital. As Japan's leading hospital for cancer treatment, the Center has introduced the newest cancer treatments throughout the country, and has nurtured many outstanding specialists such as physicians, nurses, and pharmacists. Concurrently, our staff conducts high-quality clinical research and studies for the next era of cancer treatment development.
Japan is currently experiencing an aging population, and the number of people (including our patients) with illnesses other than cancer is increasing rapidly. All employees will continuously strive to serve our patients, and will continue the endeavour to provide the world's best treatment, and conduct cutting-edge research and development.
