St. Luke's International Hospital Branch Clinic, St. Luke's MediLocus

Health Screening

Began in 1954, we are the origin of
the health screening.

Health screening is a comprehensive medical checkup, nowadays fundamental to health care. It began in Japan in 1954 at the First National Hospital (current National Center for Global Health and Medicine) and St. Luke’s International Hospital. At St. Luke’s MediLocus, members will receive twice-a-year health screenings (1st time lifestyle diseases screening, and 2nd time cancer screening or cardiovascular disease screening, upon the member’s choice). The results will be provided with high quality reports in cooperation with the medical specialists at St. Luke’s International Hospital.

Determined to improve the quality of life,
as a pioneer in preventive medicine.

St. Luke’s International Hospital is truly a pioneer in the field of preventive medicine, creating the first comprehensive health screening program in Japan. At St. Luke’s MediLocus, there thrives the spirit of those early pioneers who first proposed the need to improve the quality of life by knowing oneself and one’s potential through the medical checkup.
