Konkuk University Medical Center

Overview

Since its humble beginning as the People’s Hospital in the early 1930s, Konkuk University Medical Center (KUMC) has been providing care to patients for over 80 years. In August 2005, the hospital took a step forward with a new, modern building. The 875-bed facility has 13 floors above ground and four underground. In March 2011, KUMC received accreditation from the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare. The hospital was certified as a “Health Promoting Hospital” by the World Health Organization four months later. In December of the same year, it was also recognized by the Korean government as a Senior Medical Center specializing in advanced medical treatment, particularly for cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

The state-of-the-art general hospital is capable of providing various exams, diagnoses, and treatment all in one location. Latest diagnostic technologies and treatment, such as PET-CT, Dual Source CT, 3T-MRI, and MDCT, are available, and medical students, doctors, and researchers also benefit from working side-by-side.
