Applying for Hospitalization and Hospitalization Date and Time Contact
Doctors decide hospitalization dates after examining the patient’s medical condition and whether there are any available hospital rooms.
Once hospitalization has been decided, the head of Medical Division Hospital Room Management will contact you over the phone by the date of your hospitalization concerning what time to come to the hospital and other details.
As long as you have not received any particular direction from your doctor, please come to the Medical Division Hospital Reception Desk (Window 7) by the appointment time you were sent, and follow the procedures.

We do not take responsibility for any loss incurred in the hospital.
Nursing during your stay will be carried out by nurses, so you will not require a chaperone. However, if the circumstances of your medical condition have you preferring a family member as a chaperone, please consult with a doctor or nurse.
Rental and Cleaning During Hospitalization
At the Tama General Medicine Center, a hospital gown and bath towel rental and cleaning service is available for patients who will be hospitalized.
If you would like to use this service, please inquire with the 1F Hospital Service Reception (extension 3188).
Guide to Hospital Rooms
Special rooms (rooms with extra charge) are available for individuals.
Fee for Use (Per Day)
|Single Person Room||16,000 yen, 18,000 yen, 28,000 yen|
Those who wish to stay in these rooms, please apply when you apply for hospitalization. Please be aware that we may not be able to provide exactly the room you indicated.
Additionally, we will prioritize special rooms to those whose medical condition necessitates it. Even if you are currently using such a room, if another patient’s condition is worsening, we may ask you to move to a different room. Please be aware of this.
The number of special rooms is limited, so please call in advance of your hospitalization date.
During hospitalization, you can be moved from a standard room to a special room. If you would like to do so, please ask the nurse manager of the ward. At this hospital, room fees are calculated as part of your entire hospitalization fee, so unlike the calculation for a hotel room, the number of days will be calculated based on 12:00 AM as the start of a new day.
(Fees for staying one night, two days will be calculated as two days.)
Patients Wanting Standard Rooms (Holds 4)
There may be some situations where we cannot provide standard rooms. In those cases, please call ahead to confirm before your hospitalization date. We will discuss options at that time.
