Cancer Consultation Services

The Cancer Counseling and Support Center was established to provide both cancer patients and their families with individual consultation, and also plays host to patient salons. The bi-monthly salons provide a place for patients and their families to meet with others and share their experiences. We also provide a broad range of health and medical information (diseases, examinations, nutrition, prescriptions, etc.) at the information corner and on the bulletin board found at the center.

Cancer Counseling and Support Center

If you are receiving cancer care outside of Keio University Hospital, we can offer a second opinion regarding the diagnoses and treatments provided by your physician. The service is intended to aid you and your physician in determining the most appropriate course of treatment.

Designated Cancer Hospitals

Designated Cancer Hospitals are a nationwide network of medical centers appointed by the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare (MHLW) based upon the "Guidelines for Establishing Designated Cancer Hospitals."
There are two types of Designated Cancer Hospitals: prefectural hospitals (with approximately one such hospital per prefecture), and regional hospitals. Keio University Hospital was designated as the latter in April 2011.
Keio University Hospital has been appropriated to the West District, one of 11 divisions within Tokyo, and serves as the main Designated Cancer Hospital for the wards of Shinjuku, Nakano, and Suginami.
