“The Okryu Children`s Hospital is a palace rather than a hospital.
“It is inconceivable in other countries that the state ensures such a palatial hospital has been built for the children.
“Such a paediatrics hospital cannot be found even in the developed European countries. There are some well-built hospitals there, but they can never compare with the Okryu Children`s Hospital. And in these hospitals, patients must pay a hefty fee for medical treatment.
“The Korean children are really happy.”
(Senior fellow at Melbourne University of Australia)
“I have been to hospitals in Japan several times since I have lived there for over 60 years.
“There are many paediatrics hospitals in Japan. But I have never heard that they were built in consideration of the psychological peculiarities of the children.
“The Okryu Children’s Hospital is praiseworthy in the world as it is equipped with advanced and modern medical facilities and is often visited by the children, I think.”
(Professor at Korea University in Japan)
“The Okryu Children’s Hospital is another example showing the efforts of your country to build a prosperous country where the entire people will enjoy good health and happiness. All the facilities I saw in the hospital are modern and up-to-date. It is a wonderful hospital which cannot be compared with any hospital in the world. It is the most wonderful hospital in the world. Fascinating.”
(The chairman of the Denmark-DPRK Friendship Association)
