A hospital that must live in nature to breathe
Chonnam National University Hospital Hwasun

Welcome to the homepage of Chonnam National University Hospital Hwasun. We are a hospital that must live in nature to breathe and believe that having the attitude of putting patients first will enable us to become a world-class hospital.

Chonnam National University Hospital Hwasun opened in 2004 and became Korea's first national university hospital to receive an international accreditation 2010. In 2011, our hospital was selected as the first medical institute to be accredited by The Ministry of Health and Welfare which confirmed that our hospital's dedication to the international standard of medical service was worthy of the name and that our highest value is placed in patient safety. In addition, from 2012, our hospital has been designated as a 'Superior General Hospital' which is the highest class that can be awarded to a medical institution.

We stand shoulder to shoulder to the large metropolitan hospitals in Seoul as The National Health Insurance Review and Assessment Agency selected our hospital as one of the nation's Big 5 hospitals for cancer surgery performance for the six major cancers. We have also established an international collaborative research relationship through an exchange with Germany's Fraunhofer IZI Institute and the CIMA Institute with Spain's Navarra University to build a foundation as a research-oriented hospital. In 2011, we organized "Medical Tourism Sharing' for patients in Uzbekistan, Mongolia and Vietnam with the cooperative effort of the Korea Tourism Organization and opened the first 'International Medical Center' in the GwangjuJeonnam region for the purpose of attracting foreign patients and showcase our internationally competitive medical technology.

In addition, our hospital completed a state-of-the-art free underground parking for the convenience of hospital visitors and since late 2011, we have opened and have managed the Hawasun Geriatrics Hospital in continuance of our strive to provide the best medical services to patients.

Chonnam National University Hospital Hwasun will continue to endeavor to be a friendly and picturesque hospital, be a medical staff that thoroughly explains, and place our patient's safety as the highest priority by listening with sincerity to the 'customer's voice' and put forth effort to become a hospital that drives inspiration.

May your home be filled with health and happiness. Thank you.
