This might be a good place to start: https://www.med-dept.com/unit-histories/28th-general-hospital/
It has a full history of the 28th General Hospital as well as some details about its post-war operations in Japan. From this site it looks like the 28th was stationed in Osaka, Japan.
Best of luck with your research!
Thanks. That site is where i started. It has one small paragraph that mentions Japan, just barely. Any other sources that will have more information?
