Obstetrics and Gynecology
How to Make an Appointment: If you wish to have a delivery, please visit our hospital by the 16th week of pregnancy and pay 100,000 JPY by the 20th week and 300,000 JPY by the 32nd week (400,000 JPY in total) as a deposit for reservation of delivery (only 100,000 JPY for the childbirth direct lump-sum allowance system paid to medical institutions).
Please Bring the Following: Your maternal and child health handbook, your health insurance card, a letter of referral, and prenatal checkup results. You may not be able to have a delivery at our hospital if have had cesarean sections at other hospitals twice or more in the past, if you do not have a health insurance card, or if you are a first-time mother with a BMI of 32 or higher (BMI = Weight (kg)/Height (m) × Height (m)).
Payment: This hospital supports the direct payment system for the childbirth lump-sum allowance. If you complete the procedures for the direct payment system in advance, you only need to pay the hospitalization expenses other than the reservation fee for delivery minus the amount of the childbirth lump-sum allowance when you leave the hospital, which means that you do not need to prepare a large amount of childbirth expenses in advance. Credit card payment is also available.
Costs: 570,000 JPY to 620,000 JPY. Charges will be added depending on the time of delivery (out-of-hours, late at night, or holidays). Costs vary depending on the procedure and the number of days of hospitalization. If the baby is delivered at another hospital, the full amount will be refunded. If you apply in advance for the direct payment system for the childbirth lump-sum allowance, you will only pay the above hospitalization fee minus the amount of the childbirth lump-sum allowance at the time of discharge.
Information about Fetal Ultrasound Screening: We provide fetal ultrasound screening for a more comfortable and secure delivery. By appointment only, at either 20-to-23 weeks, or 27-to-30 weeks, or both. We also provide a service that allows you to check on your fetus using your smartphone.
Pediatric Care: We have a pediatrician on duty 24/7. This is a great relief for mothers, as we provide prompt care not only during delivery, but also afterward.
Ambulances Available 24/7: Hori Hospital provides an ambulance service 24/7/365 to pick up patients at their homes and other locations upon request. In emergency cases, a midwife or nurse will always be on board.
