The Tohoku University Hospital (TUH) has proclaimed its principle of “Aiming for harmony between patient-friendly care and advanced medicine,” and we, therefore, declare the followings at this hospital:
01We will seek optimal communication between patients, their families, and the medical team. We will pursue the quality and safety of medical care in the interest of each patient.
02We are aware that assuring the quality and safety of medical care is the responsibility of all hospital staff, and we will foster a climate that finds the lessons in failure and applies them to the future improvements.
03We will engage the entire hospital organization in creating systems to guarantee the quality and safety of the medical care we provide.
Taking the above three items as the main focus of our concern, we hereby declare our commitment to mobilizing every resource to improve the credibility of our institution and to promote safety in medical care.。

This monument is a representation of "the form of acting in unison to uphold something of irreplaceable value, and so serving as a bridge between the past and the future." It was erected in April 2004 in the green area to the west of the main entrance of our hospital.
Monument for Critical Care and Medical Safety
Taking the heart shape as a base, this logo mark expresses fluidity and innovativeness. The two modified ellipses forming the heart represent the close relationship between the hospital and the patient, together with their health care. The dark blue globe signifies the heightening of energy as well as cool intellect. TUH possesses both this warm heart and this cool, honest intellect, and the logo mark accurately expresses their presence within the locus of health care that we provide. The main color of the logo mark represents life (the patient), which is the main focus in health care, and it also stands for the blood, thus signifying hope and passion, as well. The sub color represents integrity and diligence.
