Yonsei University Medical Center

Yonsei University Medical Center was established in 1885 by the American missionary doctor Dr. H.N. Allen, and was the first modern medical institution in Korea.

As a leading institution in the medical field of Korea, Yonsei Medical Center has consistently preserved the health of the people by keeping in line with the history of Christianity, medical education and research, and hospitals in this land.

In addition, based on medical data accumulated since the 19th century, state-of-the-art medical equipment and information systems, we are providing the best medical services to 5.2 million patients per year. Yonsei Medical Center will continue to strive to realize its mission of ‘to free mankind from disease through the love of God,’ establishing its status as a medical center in Northeast Asia and leading the globalization of medical care.
