Medical team from Taiwan Medical Christian Hospital coming to SVG


The second medical team for 2017 from the Taiwan Changhua Christian Hospital will visit St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) from November 19 to December 9, 2017. This is the 12th visit of the CCH medical team to SVG since 2010.

The team comprises seven members: Dr Nina Kao (leader), Dr Cheng Hsu Chen (Emergency Medicine), Dr Wei-Jung Chang (General Surgery), Dr Yun-Liang Chen (Chinese Medicine), Dr Hui-Ming Yen (Anesthesiologist), Sr Yun-Ju Lin (ICU nurse) and Sr Sheng-Tsu Su (OR nurse).

During its visit, the team will work closely with the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH). In response to the request of local communities across the country and with the facilitation of the MCMH, Dr Yun-Liang Chen will conduct outreach visits to Georgetown, Stubbs and Barrouallie, to provide Chinese medical services to Vincentians.

In the meantime, considering the current close cooperation between MCMH and CCH on anesthesiological services, which has benefited more than 200 Vincentian patients in the past two months, the CCH specifically dispatched Dr Hui-Ming Yen, an anesthesiologist, to be one of the team members to provide anesthesiological services at the MCMH.

MCMH and CCH were twinned in August of 2010. Since then, the two hospitals have strengthened their cooperation and interaction continuously. In the May of 2017, one doctor and two pharmacists of MCMH from Kingstown visited CCH to participate in training programmes.
