JK Plus Story

A Word from our Medical Staff
Kwon Soon Hong,
Plastic Surgeon

It was a good opportunity to be thoroughly tested for our Safety Management System of the surgery and recovery rooms. JK has maintained high standards for these rooms throughout its 20 year history.

Patients have the right to get their surgeries where infection control and emergency systems are well prepared. They cannot check those important points by themselves.

I am very happy to pass this field work assessment. Since plastic surgery is clearly a surgical operation, having a safe environment is important in addition to satisfactory results.

A Word from the Director of the Customer Service Department

We have to thoroughly explain the surgeries and procedure plans ahead of time. Additionally, we must provide interpretation services in different languages from the consultation until departure and follow-up correspondence.

All pre/post-surgery information, precaution forms, and even possible side effects have to be fully explained to the patients.
One-on-one coordinators are assigned to the patients. Our coordinators passed our stringent standards: fluent in different languages, prior experience in international clinics, and official certifications such as international medical tourism coordinator.
The coordinators have specialized knowledge in plastic surgery and also attend classes to enhance their understanding of various cultures and religions.

Furthermore, precautionary and consent forms for the surgery are offered to the patients in various languages. Concierge services are also prepared for international patients who need airport pick up/drop off and a personal recovery room with the environment of a premium hotel.

A Word from our Deputy Director of the Surgical Team

Infection control and pharmaceutical management are the most important parts of managing a hospital’s internal system; the things that patients don’t normally see.

From this recertification, JK is reassured that our systematic safety management system, anesthesiology team, and emergency medical systems are fully prepared.

We will continuously do our best in operating clean and safe surgery rooms, recovery rooms, and patient rooms.
