Southern TOHOKU General Hospital

Our hospital was established on December 1, 1981. It received government approval of regional medical care support hospital and has currently 461 beds. There is "Proton Therapy Center” in our hospital premise.
To obtain government approval of the Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) facility, the clinical trial has been in the progress since January 2016.
We have been introducing equipment and technologies of radiation therapy such as CyberKnife and IMRT and we have tried to enhance our knowledge in the past several years.
Our mission is "PRO VONO AEQUNOROSA," which means that we are dedicated to our patients.
Using proton therapy, patients can receive the treatment "without incision," "without admissiontion to a hospital" and "with normal daily life." We had treated 3,920 patients in our Proton Therapy Center from October 2008 to May 2017. We provide proton therapy combined with chemotherapy or other treatment and try to serve proton therapy to more patients and improve the effectiveness of the treatment.
