The new hospital has a three-story atrium structure and stained-glass windows in the front and has been selected by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport, and Tourism for its "Sustainable Building Leading Project (CO2 saving leading type)" as an environmentally friendly building.

The hospital was established in 1973 as "Fukuoka Dental College Hospital" and renamed to "Fukuoka Dental College Medical and Dental Hospital" in 2005 and is now a general hospital with 12 specialized dental departments and 24 medical departments. In 2023, the year of renewal of the certification from the Japan Health Care Evaluation Organization, which is every five years, we were able to receive it for the fourth time.

To provide ever-advancing medical care to the community, under the leadership of President Sachiyo Suita, the hospital is equipped with the latest examination and treatment equipment, including the highest-performance CT and MRI systems, in a building with seismic isolation that can function even in the event of a disaster. Furthermore, a health checkup center that comprehensively covers the whole body and oral cavity has been established within the hospital, and we are working on various services utilizing medical and dental cooperation.

The results of key indicators for FY2022 are as follows: (1) outpatients: 186,286, average 729 per day (dental: 482, medical: 246); (2) ward occupancy rate: 67%; inpatients: 11,835, average 34 per day; (3) new patients: 17,200, dental: 9,654, medical: 7,546; (4) referral rate (number): 36 .1% (6,181 patients), dental 48.6% (4,683 patients), and medical 20.1% (1,517 patients).
