With an aging population, the future of our
medicine will be built mainly around a holistic and personalized healthcare. We
hope that, on the basis of humanistic care of better quality, we will be able to
appropriately utilize electronic information and biotechnology to form the
foundation of our management, and raise our service quality to the international
standards. National Taiwan University Hospital (NTUH) has been adapting in the
past to the changing times and shifts in the environment by carrying out a
series of organizational reconstruction and R & D programs. Beyond the
improvements to our internal processes, our healthcare quality and
effectiveness, what is more important is to our expectation of being able to
gain the trust of our patients and their family members.
to facilitate the development of the NTUH healthcare system, we have planned for
the establishment of mutually supportive systems for our healthcare system.
Through mutually supportive administrative work and the sharing of information
and resources, we will unleash the full potential of our healthcare system.
Furthermore, the Main Hospital is asked to play a "headquarters" role within the
system, in which, it will strive to guide each hospital branch along its
healthcare and R & D paths that fit the features and needs of their respective
locations. We look forward to the further integration of personnel, which will
allow the NTUH healthcare system to train well-grounded, specialized healthcare
personnel for our country. Through such training, we believe that it will be
possible to create a strong momentum and cultivate the next generation of
experts. Tomorrow's foundation is built upon today's efforts, so to make our
vision a reality, the hospital will continually review its management approach,
to create a quality healthcare education environment and carve out new frontiers
for R & D and innovative healthcare services.
The hospital has always been
committed to fulfilling its social responsibility. NTUH has been trusted by the
community for more than a century because the hospital has never stopped
advancing over the course of Taiwan's history. In addition to guiding healthcare
policies and social reforms, the hospital also plays an influential role in our
society. Consequently the hospital will continue to serve as a model, and with
courage, while staying true to its philosophy of serving even when circumstances
are tough, whether with respect to healthcare education, research, or service.
We will be involved in key local healthcare policies and reforms, the
formulation of healthcare education, the training of physicians and healthcare
personnel, the raising of healthcare quality and patient safety, public issues
like public education and humanistic care, all for the purpose of improving the
well-being of the people. At the same time, we will maintain our innovative
momentum by engaging in multidisciplinary integration with research teams from
various NTU colleges, and cooperating with research and development institutions
in Taiwan and overseas, with the hope that we can jointly produce excellent
biomedical research results and contribute to the betterment of mankind.
