Tenri Hospital (天理よろづ相談所病院 Tenri Yorozu Sōdanjo Byōin) is an international hospital in Tenri City, Nara Prefecture, Japan. It was founded as part of the secular mission of Tenrikyo. In a nation where medical care is often highly specialized and cross-specialist treatment can be difficult, Tenri Hospital founded and developed the first department of general medicine.[1]

It is part of Tenrikyo's oyasato-yakata complex surrounding the Jiba, and it is built in the same syncretic style as the rest of the complex.
