We're proud to be working with the two Severance Hospitals in Seoul, both of them centres of international healthcare excellence sharing a tradition of academic excellence.

Severance Gangnam is part of YUHS (Yonsei University Health System) and the smaller of the two Severance Hospitals, although is itself large by international standards with over 800 beds. Set in Gangnam, Seoul's ultra-hip fashion disctrict, the hospital is an imposing campus operating 36 divisions including 3 specialist hospitals (CancerHospital, Spine Hospital, and Dental Hospital) and 3 institutes (The Institute of Logopedics and Phoniatrics, Rehabilitation Institute of Muscular Diseases,and TheSpine and Spinal Cord Institute). 

During our last visit, our impression was of a bustling, executive-level hospital, enjoying a prime location and able to deliver a more peronalised service than its "big sister" across the river.
