Hospital Introduction

The principles of Shinseikai Toyama Hospital

The name “Shinseikai” is built from three Japanese characters: “shin,” meaning “truth;” “sei,” meaning “live;” and “kai,” meaning “a gathering of individuals who share the same values." Therefore, the name “Shinseikai” indicates “a gathering of individuals dedicated to practicing true medical care.”

We believe “true medical care” is care based on the principles of Buddhism, which leads all to true happiness.

We aim to offer our patients peace of mind and satisfaction, so we do our utmost to provide quality medical care based on the Buddhist principle of “benefiting ourselves, benefiting others,” which means that bringing happiness to others brings ourselves happiness.

To achieve this end, we always take care to treat our patients with gentle smiles and warm words. This, too, is one of the principles taught by the Buddha, one of the noble deeds he specified to bring happiness to others.

At Shinseikai Toyama Hospital, our mission is to provide medical care that supports our patients so they can live out their lives with no regret.
