Our hospital at the National Center for Child Health and Development (NCCHD) is the only national hospital to encompass the four areas of pediatric, perinatal, obstetric and maternal medicine in Japan. Our hospital is also the largest children’s hospital in the country. Our mission is to safeguard the health and development of future generations through the promotion of medical care in collaboration with our research institute, the National Research Institute for Child Health and Development. Therefore, the NCCHD consists not only of departments specializing in pediatrics and surgery for children, but also obstetric-based departments including infertility, fetal medicine and maternal medicine. To achieve our goal, firstly we provide safe, high-quality medical treatment to our patients. Secondly, we carry out translational research in order to establish practical ways in which we can use our clinical research findings. Thirdly, we actively train our staff and help them to develop their talents, so that they deliver the best quality of care to our patients. Fourthly, we disseminate our research findings and information about our medical treatments to the wider community. Furthermore, we aim to lead key advancements in medical care, and we endeavor to engage and involve patients in their transition from pediatric care to adult medicine. Every day, our staff continues to uphold our commitment to excellence for patients and their families, and deliver high quality care in pediatric, obstetric and perinatal medicine in Japan.
