Medical support using marine transportation during an earthquake disaster has been attracting attention because the land transportation system is expected to be paralyzed at such times. An earthquake measuring magnitude 7 is predicted to occur in Tokyo Bay in the near future. The aim of this study is to develop an earthquake-proof design for a marine hospital facility, and to calculate the required capacity and number of medical personnel. The scale of the marine hospital facility was determined based on anticipated damage caused by a near-field earthquake in Tokyo Metropolitan Area. The need for preparation of heliports and boat piers was identified.
