Hospital List

October 8, 2013 @ 10:00 am

Quick reminder for list requests from our users – please read the following reasons for not giving the list for their benefits.

We occasionally receive requests for a list of all hospitals with English-speaking doctors on staff. Even though it might seem easier on the surface, there are actually a number of reasons by JHI chooses not to publish such a list:

  1. The availability of English-speaking doctors changes frequently at some hospitals and clinics
    This is very common due to the shortage of staff and the doctors’ schedules.
  2. Not all doctors at an international hospital are necessarily able to speak English
    Some hospitals use the word “International” in their name, but for many, this is in name only.
  3. Depending on the doctor’s English level and the condition of the patient, he or she might not be able to provide the best treatment for the patient
    When JHI coordinates doctor visits, we are often asked about the patient’s condition. At some health facilities, a simple case such as the flu will be accepted. But when presented with more complicated issues, such as a chronic disease or a condition that requires complex care, many say, “English is not available in this case.”
  4. If a hospital or clinic is constantly busy, they may not be welcoming to patients who can’t speak Japanese
    Because of the extra time it takes to communicate in a foreign language; English-speaking patients are not always welcome.
  5. Japan has no General Practitioners  so  you need to visit a specialist who can treat your symptoms
    You might find what seems like a conveniently located, English-speaking clinic. However, if it your issue is not the doctor’s specialty, they won’t be able to provide care for you.

 

JHI staff always takes our clients’ needs into consideration, and check with hospitals and clinics to ensure they can really provide the care needed. It may seem troublesome to contact our office to receive information, but in fact it is much quicker than reading over a list and wasting time visiting the wrong doctor!
