The Story Behind The Brand

People and Technology are the cornerstone of our practice.

The name Tetsuyu Home Care is inspired by Tetsuyu Medical Institute, a Japanese company co-founded by Dr Shinsuke Muto. Under its wing are several subsidiaries including You Home Clinic, a medical arm with one of Japan's largest home medical care teams.

"Tetsu" ( ) is the nickname for Dr Muto's alma mater – Faculty of Medicine, University of Tokyo. 鉄 is also the kanji for Iron, a transitional lustrous metal that conducts heat. It is a symbol of Strength and Connectivity.

"You" (祐) means divine help and protection. It signifies Being A Blessing.

Put together, this name represents our hope to be a pillar of strength and communication link to our patients, their families and fellow healthcare co-workers, and inspires us to strive to go beyond providing nursing care, but to make a difference to the life of patients and their families all over the world.

We want to build a home care model that we will want for our parents and loved ones.
