Asan Medical Center Introduction
Since its establishment in June 1989, Asan Medical Center has achieved its status as a world-class, patient-centered medical institution through generous investment in clinical treatment and R&D.

Asan Medical Center is the ‘parent’ hospital among the eight hospitals under the ASAN Foundation. Since its establishment in 1977, the ASAN Foundation has been providing non-profit programs in social and medical welfare, scholarship, and academic research. In particular, the ASAN Foundation opened hospitals in rural areas where modern medical resources are scarce, fulfilling the mission of the founder, late Chairman Chung Ju-yung - ‘serving the neediest in our society.’

Asan Medical Center setting a global standard as a medical leader
Medical development is made possible as the spirit of respecting life is combined with tireless research of basic science and numerous clinical trials, treatment experience, and advanced medical techniques.
Asan Medical Center strives to become a global standard in the world medicine as a leader of medical development in Korea rather than competing with local counterparts. To this end, Asan Medical Center is ceaselessly committed to clinical research for basic medicine, industry-university R&D, and overcoming cancer through industry-university-institute collaboration centering on the Asan Institute for Life Sciences and the Clinical Research Center.
Today’s cutting-edge medicine is no longer confined merely to treating illnesses, easing pain, and recovering patients from disease. It aims to eradicate the root causes of illness to make people live a healthy life without suffering from any disease.
Asan Medical Center is at the forefront of the development of future cutting-edge medicine which combines medicine and engineering. Here, the Clinical Research Center is recognized for its exceptional ability in clinical research as it plays a pivotal role in medical development by focusing on research activities instead of theoretical studies while entering into clinical trials agreements with global leading pharmaceutical companies since last year.
Delivering greater love with advanced medical skills
Asan Medical Center gives its profits back to society and fulfills its founding spirit through free medical services for the less privileged neighbors.
Therefore, Asan Medical Center wants to become a warm-hearted hospital that shares the pain of their patients by fulfilling the objectives of ‘maintaining first-class medical services’ ‘Sharing Love with neighbors’ and ‘Sharing and Generosity.’
We also make a constant effort to treat patients like family and offer friendly services.
Until all diseases disappear from the face of earth
The ASAN Foundation's welfare operations began with a hospital in a remote corner of this nation. By bringing state-of-the-art hospitals to those who formerly had to walk all day to see a doctor, the Foundation has helped countless people to benefit from modern medicine. Through a free medical service, the Foundation has also helped the poor to lead healthier, more productive lives. Until all diseases disappear from the face of the earth, The ASAN Foundation will continue to share this love of life.
Starting with Jeong-Eup Hospital, built in 1977 in the southwest corner of Korea, the Foundation has been caring for people who had been denied modern medical benefits because of their geographic location. With high-tech equipment and first-rate professionals, the ASAN Foundation's seven regional hospitals offer a quality medical service that can be compared to that available at big-city hospitals. Moreover, these hospitals offer free house calls to the bedridden or those with special diseases.
