Welcome to Hallym University Hangang Sacred Heart Hospital!

"Aiming High, We are Heading towards becoming a World-Class Medical Leader"

The history of Hangang Sacred Heart Hospital dates back to 1971 when the late Honorary Chairman Yoon Duck-Sun founded this hospital. It has since served as a key pillar in the growth of Hallym University Medical Center(HUMC). Situated in Yeongdeungpo section, in Seoul, we have shared joy as well as hardships with our neighbors. Hangang Sacred Heart Hospital has now grown to expand its bounds of medical services from local community to the whole nation; this was possible due to mutual trust with our patients. We proudly present our global competence with various international full-fledged affiliations: Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and Weill Cornell Medical College in the U.S.; and hospitals in Europe and in Japan. We have recently completed providing training programs for burn care with Imam Ali Hospital in Iraq. We are confident that these educational programs have contributed to the post-war community reconstruction there.

For treating every patient as our family, we, at Hangang Sacred Heart Hospital are endeavoring to continuously provide healthcare based on humanity. We continue to reinvent our hospital as a medical group that cares for our patients with love. We want to be their truly trustworthy health partner. The state-of-the-art reservation system and the one-stop service systems help visitors save time and feel more comfortable. Our electronic medical records and an array of advanced medical equipment always support the patients with top quality medical services. The other centers are certain to follow suit.

On top of this, let us emphasize our pursuit of disease-specific multidisciplinary collaboration by paying an extra attention to the specialized centers - burn center, skin aesthetic clinic, arthroplasty center, international spine center, geriatrics center, and center for industrial medicine. All the centers are capable of coping with highest standards of medical needs in their fields. The burn center, for instance, has garnered the nation's highest reputation for its scale, facility and quality.

We all pledge ourselves to make Hangang contributory to the community and to the whole nation with excellent, devoted, and leading medical professionals.
