1) We provide excellent health care with trusts of our patients.Patients could leave to us as pleasant as possible that's because they trust us. We put great effort into fostering education for physicians and healthcare practitioners, improving the system of hospital management, our medical devices and facilities. We think following two basic elements are important to manage a hospital, clean finance and training of personnel.
2) OKAYAMA KYOKUTO HOSPITAL is "the hospital with a heart".Hospital management is in service industries, but it is doubtful that it works in the way it should be. It is essential for medical service to provide the possible care with informed-consent in "the hospital with a heart". We focus on discussing the topic "the rights of patients".
3) We have a NETWORK for a healthy community.Okayama Kyokuto Hospital and other medical institutions support each other to provide patients with the best health care from the patient's point of view. We have a Medical Coop Information Center to share a lot of useful information. Our task is to become "Only One" hospital with providing specialty care.
4) Every Staff enjoy and have a self-esteem with working here in Okayama Kyokuto Hospital.We believe that a good hospital for the staffs is a good hospital for the patients. Every staff can express him/herself and have self-esteem through working at a "good hospital". Why do people work? We think people work for themselves, for their families and from their consciences for the first stage, and this way of thinking expands to our mission awareness ; working for our patients and community. Work-place is the stage for every staff. "Perform your play with your best efforts," and I am the role of " stage-manager".

CT stands for computed tomography.Multislice CT is different from other CTs. Normally CT has one detector ring, but Multislice CT has more than one detector ring and is able to scan wider range of the body with one rotation. Furthermore, it takes shorter time for scanning than before. For example, it now takes about four seconds to scan a head, three seconds to a chest, five seconds to a heart.
Okayama Kyokuto Hospital install the pioneering evice "The Cyberknife". - the third one in JapanThe cyberknife is Stereotactic Radiosurgery robot that allows for precise application of highly focused beams of radiation for destroying solid cancers. Conventional stereotactic radiosurgery is done with a variety of sources of high energy radiation; linear accelerators, cobalt isotopes, and heavy particle accelerators. Each of these approaches suffers from one or more disadvantages. In 1992, a unique device, the Cyberknife is invented by Dr. John. Adlar at Stanford University.
