Title: Sellout of Tokyo Denryoku Hospital
Source: TEPCO Press Release
Date: Oct 1, 2012
We have determined to sell out Tokyo Denryoku Hospital as a part of our unprecedented management streamlining.
In principle, the hospital will be placed on competitive bid by the end of FY 2012 and sold in 2013 or later.
Though the ownership of the hospital was once sustained in our comprehensive special business plan considering that the doctors and nurses are being dispatched to J-Village, etc. to provide medical services to workers at Fukushima Daiichi and Daini Nuclear Power Stations, the hospital has been determined to be sold in consideration of the current severe management circumstances.
Departments: Internal medicine, neurology, surgery, orthopedic surgery, dermatology, urology, gynecology, ophthalmology and otorhinolaryngology (9 departments)
Number of beds: 113
