SahmYook Medical Center is a Seventh Day Adventist medical missionary institution, established to deliver Christian service, share the light of love through holistic treatment, education and development, mission and service. It was first established by an American missionary and doctor, Russell Riley, in SunAhn, PyungNam Province and moved to Hwikyung-dong, Seoul by another American medical missionary, Rue, G. H. in 1936. During the last century, the poor and the sick were embodied by us with treatment and service and we have been gaining the people's confidence ever since. In the midst of the Korean war, we provided treatment to refugees and have kept a long tradition of sharing even when the nation was in great pain.

On the basis of the pioneering spirit and the Christian love for humanity, Dr. Russell (Russell Riley), and Dr. Rue, GH who introduced the practice of Western medicine in Korea and sacrificed themselves for the Korean people, we have since developed into the current SahmYook Medical Center.
