Functions and initiatives

Disaster base hospital

Large-scale disasters result in large numbers of casualties.A disaster medical system inside and outside the disaster area is necessary to save the lives of the seriously injured.Based on the lessons learned from the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, disaster base hospitals have been established nationwide, and our hospital has been designated as a disaster base hospital in the Tsukuba Health and Medical Area.

Main role

  • Responding to serious emergency patients in the event of a disaster
  • Receiving and transporting patients from disaster areas by helicopter
  • Dispatch of a medical team (DMAT) in cooperation with related institutions
  • Support for nearby medical institutions
  • Stockpiles that can continue medical activities even in the event of a disaster

Establishment of DMAT (Disaster Medical Assistance Team)

The DMAT consists of 2 doctors, 2 nurses, and 1 coordinator, and in the acute phase of a large-scale disaster, it cooperates with related organizations to provide on-site medical care and wide-area medical transportation using aircraft. .We are preparing to dispatch to disasters not only in Ibaraki Prefecture but all over Japan.In addition, we have an ambulance-type DMAT vehicle with a patient transport function, as it is important to transfer hospitals in the event of a disaster.

Let's all make it! DMAT car

The second part of the craft series by Shigeru Atake (Chief of the Emergency and Emergency Center), also known as the craft teacher! We planned "Let's build a DMAT car!"
I incorporated a photograph of the body of the "DAMT car" actually operated at Tsukuba Medical Center Hospital into the pattern, so I think it looks very realistic! For details on how to make“Let’s all build it together! DMAT car”Click!
Both children and adults are welcome to try making it. Children, please make it together with your parents!

Install a helipad

The heliport on the roof receives and transports critically ill patients in the event of a disaster, and is usually used to receive emergency patients by doctor helicopters and disaster prevention helicopters.
