JADECOM receives many requests from local government and facilities every year to dispatch doctors. JADECOM is doing its best to meet as many of those requests as possible. In FY2023, the result of dispatching doctors from operating facilities reached a total of 1,813 doctor-days, and approximately a quarter of JADECOM full-time doctors were involved in dispatch activities.

When the Great East Japan Earthquake happened, all JADECOM staff came together to support Onagawa Municipal Hospital, located in the east part of Miyagi prefecture. (Emergency dispatch days reached 3,201 person-days by the end of September 2011), and JADECOM took over the hospital management as a first designated manager in the disaster area in October 2011. Through operating Onagawa Community Medical Center, JADECOM is now contributing to the revival of the disaster area.
