PECULIARITIES OF KUIMS MEDICAL CENTER
The main feature of the KUIMS medical center is its convenience for foreign patients. Every year more than half a million people are treated here, including about 15 000 patients from abroad. Most of the specialists in KUIMS speak English. Moreover, a special coordination unit has been established in the medical facility, where doctors, nurses and interpreters fulfill the requirements of international patients. Service in English, Russian, Chinese and Japanese are provided here as well.
The coordination unit of the center has been repeatedly awarded with various awards for the high quality services given to foreign patients. Among them are the Korean Ministry of Health and Welfare Award "For the Globalization of Medical Services", a gratitude letter "For Contribution in Medical Tourism", the "For the contribution to the development of medical services among foreign patients" award from the Korea Medical Development Institute and others.
For the convenience of foreign patients, a unique Fast Track system has been developed that gives foreign patients priority in the process of passing the diagnosis, receiving specialist advice and therapy in any department of the medical center. This system helps to save time and money for patients, shortening the period of stay in the clinic.
