Koseikan is a hospital that aims to improve the quality of life and provide healthcare to all. Koseikan utilizes the latest medicines and medical care - not only do we study new medicines and learn new medical care techniques by ourselves, but, our main priority, is also to educate and improve all staff showing potential. In other words, we protect three main pillars of our foundation: the clinical, the research, and the educational. Our mission going forward is to continue studying humbly every day.Our Basic Policies
After Koseikan was founded in 1834, and given its name, by the Feudal Lord of the Saga Domain, Naomasa Nabeshima, it soon took the initiative of introducing western medical science into modern Japan. Koseikan has maintained the health and welfare of the people of Saga Prefecture ever since. In April 2010, Koseikan became an incorporated administrative agency, entering a new era.
Recently, however, with the progression of an aging population and declining birth rates, health and nursing care reform is needed urgently. To overcome these difficulties, we hope to improve our medical cooperation with you all, in creating a better Community Support System, developing and striving for “medical value”, to provide healthcare and improve the quality of life for all.
Welcome to Koseikan. Our long history at our Mizugae site gave Koseikan stability, and 2 years have already passed since we moved to a new hospital building in 2013. The new hospital is the main Advanced and Acute Medical Care Hospital for Saga Prefecture. We provide specialist clinical department and a team medical care system to improve functionality and effectiveness. Of special importance are our targets for emergency care, cancer medical care,circulatory organ care, and infant-perinatal medical care. Also, we will provide medical care based on our core principle “We strive to provide the best medical care and put our hearts into helping those that are sick, their families and all residents of Saga Prefecture.”
Saga Medical Center Koseikan is one of the few hospitals in Japan which has a history and tradition of more than 180 years.
In 1834, Koseikan was established by the Feudal Lord of the Saga Domain, Naomasa Nabeshima, as a medical school called an ‘Igakukan’・ ‘Igakuryo’. Its name in Kanji was written by Naomasa Nabeshima and displayed in the Igakuryo. Koseikan played a leading role in Japanese medical science, especially introducing the smallpox vaccine and issuing doctor diplomas. In 1872, Koseikan became the prefectural hospital for Saga. In 2010, Koseikan became a local incorporated administrative agency. Then, in 2013, Koseikan moved to its new hospital building in Kase Town and was given the name Saga Medical Center Koseikan.
※1 Picture of Koseikan Calligraphy
This image is a framed piece of calligraphy, written by Naomasa Nabeshima, featuring the characters for Koseikan. The origin of Koseikan’s name is taken from a passage of Shang Shu, which states the importance of spreading the virtue that life has immense value and should be revered. By adhering to this belief, all people in need of medical assistance have been provided with the latest medical care, from the past to the present day.
※2 The "Syutonozu" Painting
Naomasa Nabeshima was anxious over a smallpox outbreak in the Saga domain and ordered a vaccine from the Netherlands through Soken Narabayashi, who was a Saga domain doctor living in Nagasaki at the time.
This image depicts Junichiro, son of Naomasa Nabeshima, receiving a vaccination for smallpox at Saga Castle in 1849. The court physician, Ryoei Oishi can be seen administering the smallpox vaccination to Naomasa's son. Naomasa can be seen standing in the background. After this, the vaccine was given to Edo and Osaka after originating in the Saga domain territories. Eventually, the smallpox vaccination inoculations spread across the entire country.
Saga Medical Center Koseikan is a main Advanced Acute Care Hospital and has an abundance of human resources and innovative medical strategies, providing advanced, high-quality medical care for patients and their families in a kind and respectful environment.
