From the Superintendent

Hualien Armed Forces General Hospital is located in Xincheng Township , Hualien, and has been established for almost fifty years. During this period our hospital has gradually grown step by step, thanks to our previous superintendents’ dedicated and hard-working management. Now our hospital has become the a hospital on a sizable scale in the eastern area.

The present hospital has more than 300 beds, and in addition to being responsible for military personnel in the eastern area, we also have responsibility for retired service personnel and their family members’ health care. We also provide public medical service, coordinated with the National Health Insurance, to provide medical treatment and service to the general public in the Huadong area.

The Huadong area is remotely situated, and many mountainous areas, villages and townships lack sufficient medical treatment resources. Since its establishment, this hospital has been positively engaged in community medical service, conducting irregular and free medical service in Hualien’s various remote villages and townships, and making efforts to contribute to the quality of Huadong area’s medical service.

As Taiwan’s society is gradually advancing in age, the old age population ratio is gradually increasing in the social population structure. Also growing day by day is the demand for old-age medical services and health care. This hospital has been diligent in recent years and spared no effort regarding old age medical services, regularly scheduled examinations by a doctor, providing immediate, complete and considerate overall medical health care and service. Finally, I wish everyone good health, both in mind and body, and a joyful life!
