Seonam Hospital will take care of North Korean defectors as part of efforts to help them settle in South Korea and enhance their health, the hospital said Tuesday.

The hospital has allied with Hana Center, a state-run institution to assist settlement of North Korean defectors in South Korean society, to provide them with medical care.

The hospital will reorganize itself to better treat North Korean defectors and develop health programs suitable to them.
