Our story at Korea's U-MEDI: It’s all about you!


For us, compassion towards those who are suffering from illness ranks high. We understand the drive in those who seek beauty and perfection in their daily lives. We strive for the wellness of others and firmly hold onto our belief that physical and mental wellness are both of equal and utmost importance.

In recognizing the potential language and cultural barriers, U-MEDI has turned its attention to healthcare needs of foreign nationals.

Inconsistent schedules and misunderstandings during the treatment process are some of the challenges patients face in Korean hospitals. These situations can make patients feel lonely in a setting where doctors and nurses are handling multiple tasks and the care of others. We understand these situations and believe patients need someone who can guide and provide all the necessary information specific to their situation, including cost, diagnosis, procedures and other for better care. At U-MEDI, we are here to help our patients navigate their care in South Korea’s state-of-the-art medical system.

We hold great value in trusted partnership by acknowledging cultural differences and providing services with compassion and trustworthiness.

We are for people who need a medical system specialized to their needs, especially foreigners in Korea.
