Chairman Yang Awarded for Excellent Medical Management!
Former system CEO and current Chairman, Dr. Yang Hong-Ren, was awarded the Mr. Lu Feng-Zhang Memorial Medal by the Republic of China Management Science Society on December 19th, 2009.
The award commemorates Mr. Lu Feng-Zhang’s contribution to the development of management science while encouraging outstanding young members to promote the study of management and application of management technology. Of the five who were awarded, Chairman Yang was the only one awarded for the actual application of management, as opposed to the academic research of it, which is truly rare.
Chairman Yang said that for clinicians to abandon their careers to become professional managers is an important decision. He went on to dedicate the award to all the teachers and friends in his life that helped him grow. He finished by stating his hope that more medical practitioners will apply management science practice and application in the medical industry for the medical community to create greater value.
