Taoyuan’s largest regional hospital, Min-Sheng General, held its 34th anniversary celebrations at its flagship Jin-Kuo campus on July 20th, 2009. Several local government officials were invited, including Taoyuan Deputy Mayor Guo Cai-Wen.
Min-Sheng executives, such as Chairman Yang Min-Sheng, Superintendant Zhang Yangquan, Director Kang Zhisen and Taoyuan Deputy Mayor Guo opened the festivities by cutting the cake. Min-Sheng General Hospital is the only hospital in Taiwan with JCIDSC certification. The Department of Cardiovascular medicine was rewarded with the JCIDSC honor.
In addition to the activities, volunteers donating blood were eligible for prizes, such as free ice-cream and gift vouchers. The anniversary celebration activities also included several film viewings for staff and local residents alike. Everyone enjoyed the festivities.
For 34 years, the Min-Sheng Health Care System has upheld the principles of innovation, excellence, and integrity. In recent years, the health care group has added a number of honors, such as becoming the Taiwan’s first JCI hospital and its first JCIDSC AMI hospital. In the future, Min-Sheng will continue to focus on international standards and quality of care.
Min-Sheng VP Charles Chang returned from the US 13 years ago to join the Min-Sheng Health Care System. He worked on branch development, reaping excellent results. He said that he would prefer to be like fire and burn for a short time and then disappear than be like dust sitting on the ground forever.
Min-Sheng’s VP Chang has an impressive background filled with executive experience. During his first month on the job, the hospital faced major obstacles, such as water, food and electricity shortages, and wage cuts. Owing to his wisdom and experienced, he resolved these problems one after another. He also led the hospital to the JCI, ING, and SOP periods. Finally, he spearheaded the system’s green initiative.
VP Chang learned a lot from Yi-Jen Hospital, approaching the job as if he were a soldier. He lived in the hospital for three months, ensuring that he was there when needed, especially in times of crisis. Additionally, VP Chang promotes volunteer work at the hospital and active business community resources, including government agencies, NGOs, and business organizations. He stressed that in addition to the medical profession, that Min-Sheng Group is also actively diversified into non-medical industries in order to create strong social resources and promote the efficient use of system resources.
Through entrepreneurship, growth, and changes, VP Chang states that you can never climb to the sky, but you can always climb over the mountain. VP Chang intends to continue to lead the system’s integration into internationalization, as well as to lead Min-Sheng in its pursuit of excellence, thus creating a more valuable organization.
