Shock Trauma Center
At the Shock Trauma Center, which was opened in 1998, the state-of-the-art medical facilities and the staff with advanced medical skills are ready to accept tertiary emergency patients from Saitama and other neighboring prefectures around the clock.
The treatment room is connected directly with the ICU, the operating room, the X-ray television, CT, MRI, cardiovascular imaging equipment, and the patients' rooms so that patients can be transported smoothly. This structure is very advantageous in emergency care, which requires prompt action. In addition, designated as a disaster base hospital, Koshigaya Hospital plays a leading part in an emergency drill held in cooperation with a fire station on the assumption that a large-scale disaster has occurred.
Clinical Training Center
The Clinical Training Center was established because clinical training became compulsory in 2004. The training program of Koshigaya Hospital is designed for all the trainee doctors to acquire basic clinical abilities whatever their special fields may be in the future. It is also designed to train them to build up noble character. Equipmentwise, each trainee doctor can use a personal computer; TV sets and DVD players are also available. Thus the environment is arranged for effective learning.
