Since then, the hospital has become one of the leaders in Korea’s medical development as it delivers holistic care to both local and international patients. Recognized as the top hospital in the southern Seoul region, Gangnam Severance Hospital has plans for further facility expansion and continues to contribute to medical research and technology, as well as to guide the academic development of local practitioners.
