Chang Bing Show Chwan Memorial Hospital
Chang Bing Show Chwan Memorial Hospital is a new concept in healthcare design: a “health park” that integrates treatment facilities, an art gallery, a movie theater, and a museum along with restaurants, retail stores, recreational facilities, and convenient transportation into what its planners call “a unique and holistic healthcare experience.”
Show Chwan staffers work to integrate a patient-centered philosophy with the latest medical technology, including positron emission tomography (PET) and computed tomography (CT) scanning, robotic arm (minimally invasive) surgery, Gamma Knife radiosurgery, and more.
The hospital opened in 2006, with 1,000 beds and nearly 400 physicians and surgeons. JCI-accredited in 2009, it’s affiliated with Johns Hopkins University Welch Center, Tokyo Women’s Hospital, Vancouver General in Canada, and Garfield Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Show Chwan's treatment specialties include orthopedics, cardiovascular surgery, gastroenterology, neurology and neurosurgery, and various cosmetic procedures.
