Cheng Hsin General Hospital was established in 1967 by Madame Chiang Mayling Soong, as a rehabilitation medical center dedicated to children suffering from polio. Today, Cheng Hsin has grown into a comprehensive general teaching hospital, surrounded by the beautiful gardens of Taiwan.
In addition to the treatment of polio, Cheng Hsin serves patients in the areas of Cardiovascular Medicine, Otolaryngology, and Orthopedic Surgery. Cheng Hsin boasts advanced medical devices, such as the da Vinci Surgical System, dual-source CT scanner, as well as the first cardiovascular hybrid operation room in Taiwan.
In 2010 Cheng-Hsin celebrated the 24th anniversary of its first heart transplantation. During the ceremony the hospital welcomed three recipients commemorating 20 years of life after heart transplantation—the longest standing record in Asia.
