Ashiya Municipal Hospital / 市立芦屋病院

Ashiya Municipal Hospital acts as a care hub, working in cooperation with local hospitals and care facilities.
A new ward was completed in 2012, and our other facilities were also refreshed. Our operating rooms and Gastroenterology Center feature safe, functional equipment. We also have a large, sunlit rehabilitation room, a dedicated Comprehensive Health Examination Center, a rooftop garden, and a convenience store.
We treat our patients’ opinions with the utmost importance, working hard to provide excellent medical care and healing.
