Heliport Information

December 26, 2004, we received authorization as a non-public, cooperatively used heliport, and after extensive training, began operation in April, 2005. The heliport is authorized for up to Coast Guard class helicopters. We are primarily receiving emergency patients from Nagasaki Prefecture Civil Defense helicopters.

In December, 2006, Doctor Heli began operation and it flies more than 500 times per month now.

Image Forwarding System

On request from Nagasaki Prefecture, in 1991 we created a network with 12 major medical facilities in the outlying islands to provide diagnostic imaging.

From 2001 we have been operating an image forwarding system for DAICOM standard high definition images.

At the present time we are conducting around 500 long-distance consultations a year, for treatment decisions including helicopter transport of the patients.
