Kaohsiung Medical University Chung-Ho Memorial Hospital (KMUH) was established in 1957. In 1978, in the first hospital accreditation program implemented by the Taiwanese Government, KMUH was accredited by the Ministry of Education and the Department of Health as a “Class One Teaching Hospital,” and has maintained the status of teaching medical center since then.
KMUH is continuously upgrading our facilities by purchasing advanced clinical instruments, as well as expanding the hospital buildings. The fifth phase of construction was completed in 2003, and with this new building KMUH has over 1700 beds, and it is one of the most important medical institutions in Taiwan. Aside from improving the environment, KMUH has put efforts into enhancing medical quality and patient safety. In 2016, we passed the International Hospital accreditation to become the first JCI qualified medical center in southern Taiwan.
KMUH has been developing top-notched medical treatments for many years and has obtained a lot of achievements. In the future, we will continue to focus on these featured medical treatments, for example, transplantation medicine, regenerative medicine, precision medicine (such as cell therapy), and various interventional treatments (include endoscope and peripheral blood vessels), such as minimally invasive and non-invasive surgery, which will continue to be promoted domestically and internationally through continuous technological advancement and to become a highlight of KMUH. Additionally, with the development of technology and medical care, intelligent medical care and digital transformation are gradually introduced in the clinical setting to improve the quality of medical care and create a medical system valued by patients. We developed precision medicine specifically for cell therapy and next-generation sequencing (NGS). In the meantime, we integrated various medical divisions to assist the Department of Oncology and the Department of Critical Care Medicine to construct a patient-centered and holistic health care system.
