In this paper, the aim is to look into the role and transition of the major medical institutions of Incheon-bu in the 1910s. There were three major medical institutions: the Incheon Hospital run by the Japanese settlement cooperation, the Health Union Dispensary under the supervision of Incheon police station, and St. Luke Hospital run by the English Church Mission. Incheon Hospital was the biggest hospital in Incheon; therefore, it was difficult for the Japanese residents to run it and pay their own expenses and levies. After the administrative district (Buje) was reorganized, it was incorporated into the Incheon-bu. The Health Union Dispensary was opened as a part of Health Union, which took charge of health and sanitation of Korean residents in Incheon and provided free medical treatment for poor Korean residents. There was also St. Luke hospital, which was in charge of medical care in Incheon, especially for the low-wage workers. Incheon-bu incorporated the Health Union with its sound finance following the incorporation of the Incheon Hospital. As a result, Incheon-bu managed both the hospital and the dispensary, and it entrusted the dispensary to the hospital. St. Luke Hospital experienced a financial crisis and other issues related to managing the hospital; therefore, its influence was faded in Incheon. The financial crisis experienced by St. Luke Hospital and the reorganization of the other two medical institutions by Incheon-bu allowed local health care to be integrated into one public medical institution run by Incheon-bu.
