Hospital Description

The Cheil General Hospital (CGH) & Women’s Healthcare Center was founded in 1963 and became the first medical institution in Korea dedicated specifically to women. For the past 50 years, CGH has been a pioneer in the advancement of women’s medicine and has upheld the “patient first” philosophy by providing medical services of the highest quality. CGH currently operates 16 departments and 32 specialized clinics. It is comprised of the main hospital building, an ambulatory center, a medical research institute and other facilities. Among them is the state-of-the-art Mother & Baby Care Center, which boasts the largest scale medical facilities in the country for providing services related to pregnancy, birth, infant care, and obstetric ultrasonography.

CGH also has specialized medical centers such as an infertility center, a medical exam center for women, a breast cancer center, as well as a gynecologic endoscopic surgery center. In addition, CGH has high-tech labs, each of which is dedicated to research in endocrinology, genetics, and infertility.

CGH is composed of some 1,000 employees, including about 50 professors and medical specialists in obstetrics and gynecology, which makes it the largest institution in Korea specializing in women’s health. We are all committed to providing the best care for our patients. CGH caters to an estimated 320,000 outpatients a year in the obstetrics and gynecology departments, coming out on top in terms of numbers of outpatients received in this area of medicine for 14 consecutive years (according to the Korean Hospital Association). CGH also ranks first in the number of uterine cancer examinations and primary gynecological cancer treatment nationwide (according to a survey on teaching hospitals). Moreover, some 8,000 women give birth in our hospital each year. Based on these statistics, CGH has come to enjoy its well-deserved reputation as the best women’s hospital in Korea.
