Taipei City Hospital – Yangming Branch Nursing Home
Taipei City Hospital is a full-service, total care medical institution that is prepared to meet the comprehensive healthcare needs of Taipei's 2.6 million residents. The merger of ten municipal hospitals into one unit has made the Taipei City Hospital the largest healthcare organization in Northern Taiwan. Each hospital is referred to as the respective branch of the central organization; for example, Taipei City Hospital – Yangming Branch.
The purpose of this merger was not only to improve hospital and community-based healthcare, but also to rebuild Taipei City’s entire public healthcare system. The theme of this reform was the creation of a “Total Care System”, namely a network that begins caring for an individual from before they are born until they are elderly. To do this, we seek to instill a new sense of healthy living, to facilitate a healthier environment, and to integrate healthcare into the community.
