Edwin Hiroto, one of Keiro’s founders, at the opening of the Japanese Hospital of Los Angeles (1961)Keiro began operating hospitals as a first step to serving the older adults in the community. Although this hospital closed in the mid-80s, the concept of culturally-sensitive care dates back to these days. 

Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko of Japan visited Keiro’s Boyle Heights Campus (1994) Many residents were lost at words to be able to meet the royal couple, who visited to learn and appreciate the culturally sensitive care being offered in Los Angeles.
