International Medical Evacuation and Repatriation (International Hospital Transfer)
Medical Repatriation with a Doctor and Nurse Escort
If a foreigner staying in Japan is hospitalized for illness or injury, the language barrier, payment of medical costs, and lifestyle differences during a hospital stay can cause significant stress.
In cooperation with Emergency Assistance Japan Co., Ltd., our clinic can use a database to refer you to an appropriate hospital in each area of Japan, dispatch a medical interpreter and help with payment assurance at Japanese hospitals, within the scope of your contract with a travel insurance company. Additionally, when embarkation/returning home alone or with family would be medically difficult due to a medical condition having become serious, we conduct international evacuation and repatriation to get you to a hospital in your country safely and quickly. We choose the safest means, from arrangement of a medical charter jet to medical transport on a civilian airplane. A doctor and nurse who are experienced in aviation medicine, including handling the effects of the low-oxygen / low-pressure environment in an airplane, will escort you and attend to your condition the entire way.
