General introduction to Hualien Armed Forces General Hospital (805th Army Hospital).
Located in Hsin-Cheng Township, in Hualien, the 805th Army Hospital has been in operation for fifty years. Through the excellent patronage of our predecessors over the years, our hospital has come to be regarded as the leading hospital in Hualien.
It has been our honor to administer medical services primarily to military personnel, yet our work in civilian medicine remains significant. Continuing to attend advanced courses and keeping up with the latest developments in medicine, our doctors and personnel maintain the highest level of quality care. That, along with a charitable heart, has allowed us to remain a first-rate institution.
The civilian population has often regarded us as a military unit rather than a general hospital, but in recent years, through our non-stop services and expert medical skills, we have earned a reputation as the most outstanding medical care facility in Hualien County.
Our Head Director, Dr. Chu Chi-hong, has devoted his heart and life to this hospital. Initially he was Supervisor of the Medical Department . Later he became a Deputy Director for the Department of Surgery and Medicine, finally he became the Head of the hospital.
Recently in the weeks of rampant SARS, our prompt response and high standards for isolation units have ensured patient and staff safety. In accordance with these standards and our continued devotion to this cause, we are confident we will soon win this war against SARS.
Of course, we wouldn’t want to invite you to enjoy our services, but we are always prepared to serve those in need. However, if you happen to be in Hualien, we would be honored to receive visitors.
The 805th Army Hospital is conveniently located on major bus routes, and is directly across the street from the Hualien Airport. Upon visiting our institution, you will be enchanted by the spectacular mountain scenery and the lush countryside that surrounds us.
