Inha University Hospital

Inha University Hospital was founded in 1996 as the first university hospital in the area of Incheon, to lead the differentiated medical culture in cooperation with the local community. It has been acknowledged as “the hospital to create the happy and healthy local community and the hospital to secure the utmost safety of its patients”.

Inha University Hospital was founded by the late Dr. Cho, Joong-Hoon, the founder of the Hanjin Group, with a noble spirit of sharing part of company profits into the society and repaying an obligation in 1996, as the first university hospital in the area of Incheon.

In the pursuit of its foundation ideology to become the safest hospital which considers patients’ safety first and grows in company with the local community, Inha University Hospital obtained the second JCI, global safety standard for medical institutions, following the first one in 2010 and demonstrated itself as the safest hospital acknowledged internationally for its safety.

In July 2013, Inha University Hospital became the first advanced general hospital which started to operate comprehensive nursing care wards, in order to lead improvement of hospital visiting culture and to provide comfortable and safe care services. The hospital is doing its best to help patients recover fast and return to their normal life.

In addition, it operates “Incheon Regional Cardio-cerebrovascular Disease Center”, “Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Center”, “Incheon Smoking Cessation Clinics”, and “Hospice and Palliative Care Center”. In December 2015, it was designated by the government as the regional emergency medical center equipped with the emergency medical system for increasing the survival rate of severe emergency patients. The center is dedicated to defending “vital time” in the local community.

Inha University Hospital is making the best effort to fulfill its responsibility as the representative hospital of Incheon. Under the hospital’s critical value of “harmony”, “innovation”, and “pride”, we will continue to put patients’ smile and happiness above immediate gains, share our benefits with marginalized people and create the healthy and happy local community.
