In the General Internal Medicine ward, specialists in infectious diseases, diabetes/metabolic diseases/endocrinology, rheumatology/collagen diseases, and nephrology as well as specialists in cardiovascular medicine, gastroenterology, respiratory medicine, hematology, and oncology provide treatment of a wide variety of diseases. The Cardiovascular Medicine, Gastroenterology, Respiratory Medicine, Oncology, and Hematology groups also have wards they operate.
