Changes in Outpatient, Inpatient and Emergency Care Services at Tokyo Metropolitan Hiroo Hospital due to Our COVID-19 Response Efforts
In the wake of the recent COVID-19 infection expansion in Tokyo, our hospital will be accepting COVID-19 patients as a top priority. In order to accomplish this mission, we are to secure as many beds as possible in our wards for the COVID-19 patients who need to be hospitalized.
Consequently, our patient care services will be temporarily cancelled as follows. We apologize for any inconvenience that may cause you and kindly ask for your understanding and cooperation.
In addition to the above, note that separated patient pathways and restricted access between Non-COVID-19 outpatients and COVID-19 inpatients on the premises are fully ensured.
Please contact your attending doctor if you have any concerns about your appointment being rescheduled as well as your medical conditions.
