The National Epilepsy Center is located six kilometers from downtown Shizuoka, in the northeast part of the city. It is surrounded by rice fields and mountains in which mandarin oranges and green tea are cultivated. These surroundings, together with Shizuoka’s mild climate, make the National Epilepsy Center an ideal place in which to convalesce.
The area in which our hospital is located – a “Medical Treatment, Welfare, and Education” complex – also includes the Shizuoka Prefectural Children’s Hospital and Special Education Schools for physically and intellectually disabled children. The bustling Seishin (Shizuoka-Shimizu) Central Wholesale market is located one kilometer east of the National Epilepsy Center.
The hospital includes sections such as Internal Medicine, Psychiatry, Neurology, Pediatrics, Neurosurgery, Rehabilitation, Radiology, Anesthesiology, (Dentistry). The hospital has 410 beds and the outpatients are approximately 130 per day.
