Tokyo Midtown Medical Center
When Mitsui Fudosan Co. Ltd., Japan’s largest developer, sought help planning a state-of-the-art, full-service outpatient care center in the Tokyo Midtown Tower, it turned to Johns Hopkins Medicine International for our expertise.
The Tokyo Midtown Medical Center gave patients access to something not widely available in Japan —outpatient procedures and same-day surgeries.

- Development of quality, patient safety and infection control programs
- Selection of major capital equipment (radiology and imaging)
