TOKUDA HOSPITAL SOFIA
"All living beings are created equal" - DR. TORAO TOKUDA
DR. TORAO TOKUDA
Four mandates as member of parliament in Japan and owner of Tokushukai Medical Corporation, the investor in Tokuda Hospital Sofia, main shareholder in Tokuda Bank Ltd Sofia.
Tokushukai Medical Corporation is the biggest medical chain not only in Japan but all over the world: The corporation holds more than 280 hospitals in Japan.
Tokuda Hospital Sofia is the first Dr. Tokuda's hospital abroad. As a pilot project, this hospital is planned to be a medical enterprise on the highest level in Bulgaria as well as in the entire region. Bulgaria and Sofia won the competition with Moscow, Seoul, Beigin, Warsaw, Belgrade and Bucharest for this pilot project.
The first visit of Dr. Tokuda to Bulgaria was in June 1997. At that time the idea to build a Japanese hospital in Sofia came into being because: "Here I liked the people and the country too. I was convinced in the qualities of the Bulgarian physicians. To build a clinic is like to build a love-match. Our hospital here is namely a wedding love-match". An important reason for this choice is the key location of Bulgaria on the Balkans and in Europe.
