The development is on the premises of NCC Hospital East, six minutes by bus from Kashiwanoha-campus Station on the Tsukuba Express Line. NCC Hospital East, one of the leading specialized cancer hospitals in Japan, treats nearly 300,000 cancer patients a year from both Japan and overseas. There are cases where patients must undergo regular outpatient treatment for a certain period of time, or where patients must travel from afar to undergo inpatient or outpatient treatment. In order to meet these and other needs of visitors and improve convenience, NCC and Mitsui Fudosan have decided to construct this accommodation facility adjacent to the hospital on the NCC Hospital East grounds.
Mitsui Fudosan and NCC are working closely together, exploring specific services, functions and features that will support cancer patients and their family members, beginning with designs for guest rooms and public areas. The development of new healthcare services such as telemedicine, sensing devices, and other technologies are planned supported by deploying communications infrastructure such as 5G and IT. Through these initiatives, Mitsui Fudosan and NCC will create a new clinical model in collaboration with the hospital.
