Asan Medical Center (AMC) was established on June 23, 1989, based upon its founder's mission of "helping the least privileged member of our society." Since then, AMC has continuously contributed to the fields of patient care, medical research, and training of medical doctors and students, and has become Korea's top healthcare organization.
The core of this growth is our staff whose dedication and hard work have made AMC the pioneer and leader of 'patient-oriented' medical practice.
Asan Medical Center is currently the parent hospital to seven regional hospitals located throughout South Korea. Each AMC hospital works with numerous, regional healthcare providers in order to serve its local community with equal opportunity access to high-quality medical care. Also partnering with the University of Ulsan College of Medicine, the regional hospitals function as the bastion for the next generation of Korea's medical and healthcare experts.
AMC's network is not limited to within Korea as being a partner of Partners Harvard Medical International (PHMI) and Imperial College London. AMC is engaged in an active exchange of research and training programs with the world's leaders in medicine. This is all for AMC's far-reaching goal of contributing to the healthy life of both the local community and the nation and, furthermore, of mankind.
Asan Medical Center has a new clinic building completed in 2008. This is an important milestone signifying a new era with a reinforced and restructured patient care system. Focusing on its goal of a "patient-oriented" clinic, AMC continuously streamlines its objectives according to the changing needs of its patients. As the leader of Korean 21st century medicine and healthcare, AMC is committed to unceasing innovation.
