One Day Health Screening at Seoul Central Clinic
She was had health screening every year and the result had shown no problem before. However, at this time, the result said that she had early stage of cervical cancer. She was frustrated and scared. Seoul Central Clinic transferred her to a neighboring university hospital for further care. Then, she had a successful surgery successfully at a university hospital and now enjoys healthy life. She said, “Seoul Central Clinic examined and showed the result at the same day and scheduled the surgery for me at a university hospital in few days. This fast process of Seoul Central Clinic saved my life.”
Seoul Central Clinic, located in Jongro-Gu, Seoul, has nine medical departments; Imaging center, gastroenterology, dermatology, cardiology, pulmonology, family medicine, gynecology, neurology and plastic surgery.
The Seoul Central Clinic offers various health screening programs. The most luxurious one is VIP health screening which cost ranges from 3,000,000 to 6,000,000 KRW. As you may notice, these prices are a lot cheaper than those at university hospitals although test procedures and health screening devices such as PET-CT, MDCT, MRI or MRA, are similar. Seoul Central Clinic is equipped with the latest and advanced medical devices, whose value cost more than ten billions.
Besides the VIP health screening, Seoul Central Clinic also offers a variety of health screenings, for example, health screening for specific disease such as cancer or dementia and for specific people such as couple or students. One day service which is only available in Seoul Central Clinic examines, analyzes and shows the result of health screening in one day. If a patient needs further treatments, Seoul Central Clinic transfers a patient to a larger medical center, for example, Seoul National University Hospital, Severance Hospital, Samsung Seoul Hospital or St. Mary Hospital.
Dr. Minsuk Shin, a president of Seoul Central Clinic, said, “17,000 patients came for health screening last year. Especially, foreign patients were very satisfied with our VIP health screening. We are planning to actively introduce our VIP health screening to foreign patients.”
