This report is the culmination of planning involving the best efforts of a few expert/consultants, in an open, transparent, widely consultative process. We demonstrate clearly a vision and direction for the WROMSC which aligns with the orientation of both the Ministry of Health and Welfare, and the City of Seoul and which offers workable solutions to some of problems currently experienced in our healthcare industry. Members of the Board also have been involved in these processes and are prepared to work to advance this project. We are all seeking early approval for the construction of a new facility on the subject site. Our goal is to ensure patients receive the best quality of care at an affordable cost to the system.


The financing of the project will be achieved through an overseas loan of $200-350 million, a $10 million contribution from the Board, and by savings generated in the operation of new facility. The magnitude of the project requires a special fast-track approach to design and construction, so as to limit costs. This project arises from the urgentneeds, felt throughout society, to modernize our healthcare system so that advances in knowledge, technology, and communications can better meet the population's needs for quality, access, and cost-effective operation. This project goes beyond health services proper to deal with concerns having to do with the heritage of buildings and the fabric of the urban environment.
