Introduced by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), Changhua Christian Hospital (CCH) was one of nine hospitals in Taiwan signing contract with Central Insurance Group on Dec. 27th, 2009. Qualified by JCI (Joint Commission International), CCH provides the highest standards on medical quality patient safety, and becomes the first hospital of central Taiwan contracting with Central Insurance Group. From now on, CCH will serve patients of US major medical insurance companies.
Dr. Sam Kam, Chairman of Central Insurance Group, has been operating the group for over ten years in Southern California, USA, and has maintained a good relationship with major US insurance companies. Central Health Plan of California and Central Health MSO are the affiliations of the Group including total number of 200 employees, annual turnover of 100 million USD, and becoming the 3rd biggest medical management organization in southern California.
In order to fight for the contracts to US insurance companies, Dr. Kam will establish Taiwan HealthCare to forge an alliance with CCH and other hospitals in Taiwan. Therefore, patients from contracted US insurance companies may receive a high quality medical care with affordable expense.
Dr. Shou-Jen Kuo, superintendent of CCH, indicated that CCH provided with live transplantation, cardiac catheterization, artificial reproduction, joint replacement, and integrated cancer treatments. In addition, there are more competitive medical cares such as health evaluation combines with tour courses, cosmetic medicine and tooth implantation. CCH, located in the middle Taiwan, is the one with the most beds among those JCI accredited hospitals in Asia. “We have implemented the patient-centered spirit—to provide care from patient’s point of view—in medical care with our well communicated medical teams. The spirit spurs us continuously to pursue medical quality and improvement. This is CCH’s spirit,” said Dr. Kuo. CCH has built up high standard International Ward under such spirit with affordable price to provide medical care. “We are confident that CCH will become the first choice for international medical service in central Taiwan,” said Dr. Kuo.
