Since its establishment, the hospital has consistently made significant advancements and growth. Currently the hospital operates 24 departments and 736 beds, and over 1,300 staff including 130 faculty members certified in Korea and overseas for high competitiveness, work at the hospital and are inspired with love for mankind.
