About Toranomon Hospital Kajigaya

This hospital responds to the needs of the times
with high-level medical services based on
state-of-the-art treatments for chronic phase
liver and kidney diseases.

Toranomon Hospital Kajigaya was inaugurated in 1966 as a Chronic Disease Treatment Center. We have inherited this tradition and currently provide treatment with an emphasis on chronic phase patients with liver and kidney diseases. Toranomon Hospital has received high acclaim throughout Japan for these activities. Concurrently, we also provide medical services for local patients by building a close network of cooperation among regional medical associations, mainly in the Takatsu and Miyamae areas of Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture.

These two core commitments of Toranomon Hospital Kajigaya, to excellence in liver and kidney medicine and to outstanding community-oriented medical service, which are distinctive features of this hospital, are of course supported by the world-class medical treatment offered by the main Toranomon Hospital. In this, liver treatment has been a driving force for Toranomon Hospital as a whole. In particular, Toranomon has continued to improve its response to liver disease by making full use of genetic analysis techniques. Each patient is diagnosed at the genetic level from the beginning of treatment to ensure the best treatment for that individual’s unique physical state. One feature of the Liver Division is its wide range of activities in clinical research. The division has six laboratories engaged in research with the focus on new discoveries that will lead to improved treatment and new drugs based on cooperation with front-line medical caregivers. The Kidney Division also gives hope to patients through new methods of treating polycystic kidneys.

Thus, the high quality of advanced medical treatment offered by Toranomon Hospital Kajigaya is constantly maintained by the overall Toranomon Hospital system, which regularly rotates doctors, nurses, and administrative staff between the two hospitals. We are working to improve this coordination through techniques such as video conference calls and rapid exchanges when information sharing is necessary, for example, when new medical technologies are introduced. In the future, we aim to improve our level of medical care by enhancing this sense of unity, particularly by strengthening the system of cooperation with departments at the main Toranomon Hospital.

Today’s social problems, which include an acute shortage of doctors and continually rising medical costs, are already causing great changes in medicine in Japan. Moreover, as we approach the year 2025, when the baby boomer generation reaches 75 years of age, we now face a number of issues that must be addressed at the fundamental level.

In times such as these, Toranomon Hospital Kajigaya has a keen eye on changing medical needs and strives to achieve its goal—which is also the basic principle of Toranomon Hospital—of providing “the best medical care possible in each period.” While also expanding our role as a general hospital, we hope to contribute to maintaining the health of as many people as possible through our specialization in chronic diseases.
