Tokyo Adventist Hospital (TAH) turned 90 years old in 2019. On June 30, more than 300 people attended the anniversary ceremony held at the place where the first church-based hospital in Tokyo, Japan, opened nine decades ago. The theme of the TAH 90th anniversary was “Hope and Move Forward.”
A select choir composed of hospital employees began the service with praise and thanksgiving. Then TAH president Toshihiro Nishino addressed the congregation.
“Please allow me to express my sincere appreciation for the staff, the patients, neighboring medical institutions, and, most of all, God for sustaining the hospital in support of His medical ministry as the right arm of the message,” Nishino said. “I encourage the staff to bring hope to patients as we move forward into the future.”
