hoon have provided medical services in rural communities since Mach of last year,


visiting 7000 rural residents every year. A one-corporation-to-one-village-exchange


agreement was reached with Goseong-gun of Gangwon-do and other villages in the


region, providing a platform for exchange between a city and a rural community. The


hospital is proactively carrying out activities such as providing support for medical


services in Goseong-gun, a fire-stricken region in 2019 through the establishment of


sisterhood ties.
