Far Eastern Memorial Hospital
Bệnh viện ở Taiwan, Việt Nam
There was a large population during the 70’s and 80’s in Banqiao and Tuchen District, New Taipei City; however, there was not any modern hospital in these areas. Therefore, the seriously injured workers and ‘in critical condition’ patients had to transfer to Taipei City. Under this circumstance, many of them were delayed in receiving a proper medical treatment due to the long traveling distance. Mr. Yu-Ziang Hsu, founder of the Far Eastern Group, was aware of the situation and had based on his belief of “By the society, for the society” having Far Eastern Memorial Foundation setup for the construction of hospital, emergency rescue, free clinic for the poor and sick, and inspiring medical and medicine research. Far Eastern Memorial Hospital (FEMH) was established in Banqiao on April 1, 1981 and with 150 beds ready for service. FEHM was accredited by the Ministry of Education as the secondary teaching hospital to be in 1983, the secondary teaching hospital in 1985, district hospital in 1988, district hospital & teaching hospital in 1991 to 1997, and district hospital and Class II Teaching Hospital in 2000 to 2003.
