History of our hospital

Our hospital was established in the 1949 year of the Republic of China and has a history of over 70 years. In the early days, we only had clinical departments such as internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, and ophthalmology. After undergoing multiple organizational changes, we still uphold the core values of loyalty, responsibility, and treating patients as family. We continuously strive for improvement and growth, enhancing medical quality and the environment. Over the years, both our software and hardware have been expanded. Currently, we have 29 clinical departments, a total of 616 beds, and more than 897 employees. We are the only regional teaching hospital in the Zuonan area.”
