Greetings from the President

Thank you for visiting us! Greeting from the President of St. Vincent Hospital of Catholic University of Korea, Kim, Seon-young, Deressita

We will do our best to be a hospital that the patients choose to come for their body and mind to be treated with love, a trusted hospital that people recommend to their neighbors.

We will do our best to be a hospital that the patients choose to come for their body and mind to be treated with love, a trusted hospital that people recommend to their neighbors.

At the time of opening, about 10 medical staff treated 70 outpatients and 80 inpatients in a day. As a result of constant change and development, the hospital is positioning itself as a leading hospital in the areas around Suwon, treating one million outpatients and 250,000 inpatients annually.

In the government evaluation, each year, St. Vincent Hospital has been marked with the highest scores in every category including lung cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, stroke, etc. In 1994, the hospital conducted the first successful laparoscopic splenectomy in Korea. In 1996, the hospital conducted the world's first laparoscopic anal sphincter preservation for rectal cancer. The hospital is making every effort to keep on providing better medical services.

At the moment, St. Vincent Cancer Center is under construction aiming for completion in 2018. This will allow us to fully incorporate into our services the "St. Vincent Care System," which concerns not only physical restoration but also spiritual healing. We are planning to establish a network among 57 St. Vincent Hospitals in nine countries around the world including Germany, the United States, Australia and Canada, in order to realize our mission which was proclaimed in 2012: "St. Vincent in the world that becomes one with love"

For us, those who most resemble our Lord are the patients. We will sincerely fulfill the vision to become more inclusive so that patients can become hosts, a hospital where patients want to come to treat both body and mind, and a hospital that can be recommended to neighbors. All our staff will devote efforts and dedication to fulfill the spirit of compassionate love of St. Vincent, along with improvements of medical care quality.

Hope you will always love St. Vincent's Hospital and may God bless you all the time.
