Kameda Medical Center (KMC) is among Japan’s oldest and largest hospitals and is the only facility fully accredited by the Joint Commission International. KMC directly fronts the Pacific ocean and epitomizes today’s state-of-the-art medical facility. The KMC campus includes Kameda General Hospital, with 925 beds, more than 460 full-time physicians in specialties ranging from herbal medicine to laser surgery, units for intensive care in several specialties, and a 24-hour heliport adjacent to the level-I emergency and Trauma Center.

Kameda’s 237,000-square-foot outpatient Clinic features a high-tech diagnostic imaging center and averages more than 3,000 patients daily.

Also onsite is the full-service, 56-bed Kameda rehabilitation Hospital, providing physical therapy, stroke and cardiac rehabilitation, and more. KMC’s newest inpatient facility, K-Tower, opened in 2005 and offers 320 private rooms with round-the-clock visiting hours and spectacular ocean views.

To develop and maintain the best possible relationships with its patients, KMC strives for openness, honesty, and transparency in healthcare. Patients are treated as full participants and decision-makers. With a worldwide reputation for excellence and its recent accreditation by the Joint Commission International (JCI), Kameda has become a prime destination for international patients, expatriates, and travelers.

My full recovery took the better part of a year, but I survived, thanks to KMC and its well-trained staff. During my stay, I was very impressed by my beautifully appointed private room overlooking a tropical beach, and by the excellent restaurant (with some of the best wines I have found in Japan). My experience at Kameda was nothing short of fantastic―and they saved my life to boot! ―Mark C., United States
