Since its foundation in 1885, Severance Hospital has dedicated itself to caring for people suffering from illness. It has helped patients to once again stand on their feet to return to their family and society in good health. We take great pride in our hospital’s history of love and grace.

Since its foundation in 1885, Severance Hospital has dedicated itself to caring for people suffering from illness. It has helped patients to once again stand on their feet to return to their family and society in good health. We take great pride in our hospital’s history of love and grace.
Since our establishment, we have faithfully maintained the Severance spirit. The Severance spirit includes: the spirit of exploration, as shown by Dr. Horace N. Allen who, as a missionary doctor, took his first steps into Korea to establish and practice western-medicine during a time when national strength was declining due to a deteriorating economy and environment; the spirit of Christian love, as shown by Dr. Oliver R. Avison, our 4th Director, who devoted 42 years of service and made many great contributions to spread God’s love; and the spirit of cooperation, as shown by our early leaders, who dedicated their lives for our hospital’s advancement.

With great pride of having led the way for Korean medical science for more than 120 years, Severance Hospital is now ready to take the leap of becoming a hub hospital in Asia. Based on the hospital’s state-of-the-art medical facilities and an outstanding medical workforce, Severance Hospital will continue to put its best foot forward in facing all the challenges involved in preventing and curing diseases.

Severance Hospital remains committed toward achieving its goal of becoming one of the world’s most trusted medical institutions by offering world-class medical services through ubiquitous technology (u-Severance), as well as advanced medical equipment, such as robot-assisted surgery and Tomotherapy.

Our patient-oriented hospital offers more than traditional clinic-based medical services. By choosing Severance Hospital, you will also find us to be a place that understands the rights of patients, all in a comfortable and convenient environment.
