Min-Sheng’s Foray into the World of Medical Tourism Continues to Receive Media Coverage
After being interviewed by Las Vegas’ largest newspaper, the Las Vegas Sun, and the largest overseas Chinese newspaper, the World Journal, during a trip to the U.S. in May, Min-Sheng was later mentioned in the May issue of U. S. News and World Report. The issue, which centered on medical travel, included Min-Sheng in a list of the world’s top 42 hospitals for medical travel.
Additionally, Min-Sheng is in the June edition of the International Medical Travel Journal which focuses on how an open door policy between Taiwan and mainland China will affect both sides of the straight with regards to medical tourism. Furthermore, the article classified Min-Sheng as one of five hospitals in Taiwan providing medical tourism services. The article provides a half page description of Min-Sheng’s specialties and services as well.
San-San Liao, an International Health Care Center specialist, stated: “Without direct cross-straight flights, Mainland Chinese patients may choose to receive health care in Hong Kong rather than in Taiwan. However, the capacity of Hong Kong health care is limited. With the availability of direct flights, China patients will have more access to quality health care.”
Ms. Liao also shared Min-Sheng’s international management experience, including the source of Min-Sheng’s international customers, the hospital’s latest technology, its medical specialties, etc.
