Current Status of Omoto Kai
We (Omoto Kai Group) are an organization based out of the Okinawa Prefecture which celebrated our 60 year anniversary in 2019. Since 1998, our basic principle as a group has been “Consolidation of Medical/Health/Welfare”, which is successfully achieved by our 3 corporations including Medical Corporation, Social Welfare Corporation and Education Corporation. A few years later in 2005, the Japanese Government has created a system called “Chiiki Houkatsu System” which provides Medical and Nursing together.
In the Medical corporation, we cover acute/recovery phase and home medical care. In the Social Welfare Corporation, we have nursing homes in Naha and Tomigusuku which provides day services at our facilities and home nursing care. In the Education Corporation, we contribute in human resource development by operating a nurse training school called「Okinawa Kango Senmon Gakkou」and a training school for physical therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech/Hearing Therapists, and Care Workers called「Okinawa Rehabilitation Fukushi Gakuin」which are the first training schools in Okinawa. We have about 6,000 graduates from both of these schools. We would like to continually contribute to our community through Omoto Kai`s 「Community Care Network」and be an influence of creating an healthy society in Okinawa. Please look forward to our service from the Omoto Kai Group.

Mental and Physical Health Care Center
As one of the recent government policies, it is very important to have a mental health care program within the company. We believe that awareness towards mental health within the group will help revitalize the company.
In May 2011, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has implemented 「Countermeasure towards Mental Health Community」which also requested for all companies to strengthen their awareness towards Mental Health.
As a result, we have also established 「Mental and Physical Health Care Center」to support our employees’ mental health within the Omoto Kai Group.

Common sense from now on is “No Lift” care
Project for changing caregiving and
care from Omoto Kai
Common sense from now is “No Lift”
There is a new movement towards Nurses and Caregivers backaches, which is one of their most common work-related injuries. This “No Lifting Care” movement has been implemented throughout Australia and now starting to grow in Japan. By reducing the amount of labor and protecting our employees, we can focus on our patients and support them with our best care.
Idea of “No lift”
- 01Being aware that backaches should not be usual for the Nurses and Caregivers job
- 02Providing professional care to avoid and react
- 03Applying Safety and Health Management at the nurses and caregivers work site.
- 04Being aware that backaches should not be usual for the Nurses and Caregivers job
- 05Being aware that backaches should not be usual for the Nurses and Caregivers job
