Maidashi-Kyūdaibyōinmae Station (馬出九大病院前駅 Maidashi-kyūdai-byōin-mae-eki?) is a subway station on the Fukuoka City Subway Hakozaki Line in Fukuoka, Fukuoka, Japan.

The station's name, which is the longest for a Japan subway station, means "Front of Kyushu University Hospital in Maidashi". Chiyo-Kenchōguchi Station is, however, closer to the hospital. Maidashi-kyūdai byōin mae is the station closest to the Prefectural Government office. The symbol on the sign is a dove, representing peace and nursing (a reference to the nearby hospital).

Station layout[edit]

The station consists of one island platform located in the second basement, serving two tracks.

History[edit]

The station opened on 27 April 1984 as a terminus of the subway line.[1]
