      Seoul National University Bundang Hospital, consists 8 centers : the Geriatric Medicine Center, Cardiovascular Center, Clinical Neuroscience Center, Respiratory Center, Joint Disease & Reconstruction Center, Spine Center, Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Health Promotion Center and 34 departments: Geriatric medicine, Cardiology, Pulmonology, Allergy, Rheumatology, Gastroenterology, Hematology&Medical Oncology, Endocrinology, Nephrology, Infectious Diseases, General Surgery, Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, Neurosurgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Pediatrics, Dermatology, Urology, Ophthalmology, Otorhinolaryngology, Neuropsychiatry, Neurology, Anesthesiology, Dentistry, Emergency medicine, Diagnostic Radiology, Radiation Oncology, Nuclear Medicine, Laboratory Medicine, Patology, Rehabilitation Medicine, Physiologic Diagnostic Laboratory, Family Medicine


      This hospital branch is connected with the highest level of Korean medical technology of Seoul National University Hospital, and accomplishes the function of a national medical center for adult and elderly diseases, creates the perfect digital medical treatment system, operates special centers according to diseases, and is also a general treatment and emergency center for residents.


      Korea is experiencing a rapid increase in the number of elderly people (over 65 years old) and that portion of the population now represents 10.7% of the entire nation. However, despite the rapidly increasing demand for medical treatment, the actual situation sees a severe lack of medical treatment facilities, both public and private.

      This difficulty is increasing due to the low profitability of treating elderly diseases', resulting in an avoidance of this field by private hospitals.

      Faced with these actual circumstances, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital will open a new chapter in internal medical treatment through performance of the function as a national medical center for the elderly, through training and fostering a succession of capable people, and through a systematic study of elderly diseases.

      Furthermore, Seoul National University Bundang Hospital is built in an innovative hospital environment in which an EMR system has replaced the non-digital paper-chart facilities. The patient's treatment data is computerized, not kept on paper, creating the first advanced technology digital hospital of the 21st century in Korea . Doctors can review the patient's medical records whenever and wherever by using a notebook or PDA.

      Also, the space design, which is focused on the patient's convenience and excellent scenery, harmonized with Bulgok Mountain and Tanchon stream, are a pride of the hospital.
      Seoul National University Bundang Hospital maintains an intimate relationship of cooperation with Seoul National University Hospital, as to offer the highest-level's medical treatment service, and will also try to take a central role as Korea's first specialized hospital for the elderly and treatment of adult diseases.
