Chonnam National University Hospital (CNUH) was established in 1910. CNUH is the biggest hospital in the southwestern part of South Korea. Current hospital beds are 1,500 beds including Hwasun Hospital. The number of outpatients is 3,000 daily.

Newly built in 2004 in the clean natural setting, CNUH?s Hwasun Hospital has won the recognition as the center of excellence. For the treatment of neoplastic and arthritic diseases, in particular, the hospital has been ranked among the top tier medical institutions in the nation.

To optimize treatments and to address different needs of each patient, there are specialty centers dedicated to a specific disease category in the main hospital at the Hakdong campus. At these centers, the individual needs are responded to the fullest by employing a highly trained team of medical specialists and supporting staff. To hasten the coming of the disease-free future, the multitude of research works are in progress uninterrupted at the government-authorized center for clinical trials at CNUH.

In addition, the opening of the Hospital of School of Dentistry at the Yongbong campus of Chonnam National University in 2008 brought the start of an independent specialty for dental care at CNUH.

Beginning with its first kidney transplant in 1987, CNUH has developed a long list of successful organ transplant operations leading to the first living donor liver plantation in the region. The work conducted at the Center applies advanced medical techniques to enhance the quality of life of patients in need of organ transplants.
