Within the healthcare sector, we're not only engaged in Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) services for hospitals, but we're also set to venture into the digital healthcare business, which includes initiatives like medical banking. This expansion is built upon the customer base we've developed through our operation of medical facilities.
Given the context of an aging population and healthcare system reforms, it's essential to develop forward-looking facilities. The JGC Group is actively involved in advanced projects across Japan, incorporating the integration and optimization of management, business operations, physical structures, and facilities, along with information systems. Furthermore, our goal is to embrace the digital healthcare sector, including endeavors like the smart hospital business, by leveraging open innovation to acquire cutting-edge medical technologies and making proactive investments in digital advancements for hospitals and medical checkup establishments.
