The hospital was established in April 1968, through the merger of Taipei Obstetric Hospital and Taipei Children’s Hospital to form the Taipei Maternal and Child Care Hospital. Originally located in Section 2, Zhongshang North Road, the hospital has experienced multiple reforms over its 27-year history. On July 1, 1999, the hospital was assigned under the Department of Health, and became “Taipei Hospital, Department of Health, Executive Yuan”.
Then, in accordance to the restructuring of the Executive Yuan, the Department of Health in combination with other social welfare agencies became the Ministry of Health and Welfare on July 23, 2013. Accordingly, Taipei Hospital was also renamed to “Taipei Hospital, Ministry of Health and Welfare”. Since its inception, Taipei Hospital upholds the patient-centered principle and see patients not merely as patients, but as family members.
Taipei Hospital is in possession of 367 general beds and 147 specialty beds. Moreover, it caters up to a maximum of 150 psychiatric daily care beds. Currently, there are 110 physicians on duty with total staff numbering at more than 1,000. As a public hospital, we emphasize on the needs of the society and carry social responsibilities of care for disadvantaged and minority groups. Under the excellent leadership of former Superintendents, the hospital is now well developed with the capacity in health promotion, preventive health, mid-to-long term care, and emergency and critical care.
Thanks to with team effort and forward-thinking strategies by all the predecessors, the hospital has received wide acclaim in the local community for providing advanced medical technology and quality services. To date, the current Superintendent Dr. Jiin-Chyr, Hsu, continues to uphold the missions of “convenience, quality, community service, sharing of growth” to develop the hospital further in community health, expand international health, as well as the recruitment of top quality talents to create new value and innovative services. Taipei Hospital will not only strive to safeguard the health of the public, but further establish itself as a role model for all hospitals under the Ministry.
