Dear Sir/Madam,
I am You Sang-Ju, director of Kongju Medical Center in Chungcheongnam-do.

The Gongju Medical Center in Chungcheongnam-do was founded on September 5, 1910 as the "Governmental Gongju-Jahae Clinic", and it served the people for over 100 years on Woongjin-ro street, and now we have moved to a new building on Muryeong-ro to start writing a new 100-year history.

To become a future-oriented local base public hospital leading the fast social change, Gongju Medical Center has built a new medical center on Muryeung-ro, focusing on enhancing medical standards based on the new pleasant environment. In the past, there were only 13 medical departments and 18 specialists at the center. At the new center, however, new departments have been added: renal medicine, respiratory medicine, orthopedic surgery (artificial joints, hands, feet, and shoulder joints), rehabilitation medicine, surgery (thyroid, breast), family medicine, and ophthalmology, resulting in 18 departments and 28 excellent specialists doing their best for the health of the local residents.


In addition, we have established the artificial kidney center, installing 25 state-of-the-art kidney dialysis machines and have set up rehabilitation medicine center, through which we have raised the medical standards around the area. We are doing our best to gain the hearts of the community by operating an honest and modern funeral center, convenience facilities, and a healing gallery in the hospital lobby. We plan to operate 13 hospice wards for terminally-ill patients and six negative pressure wound therapy isolation wards for infectious diseases in the fall.

In 2017, the hospital have received official recognition from the Ministry of Health and Welfare after its evaluation of all the medical institutions across the country in the medical service quality and patient safety level since our relocation, and we have maintained Level A for six consecutive years in the ministry’s evaluation of local emergency medical institutions, and we have received the award of the minister as the third finisher of 266 local emergency medical centers, which has recognized its excellent medical services.

In future, Gongju Medical Center in Chungcheongnam-do will do its best to become a local base public hospital that is loved by local residents, taking responsibility for the health of the local residents, which will realize the comfort and happiness of the patients.

Thank you so much,

Director You Sang-Ju,
Gongju Medical Center in Chungcheongnam-do
