The Centre of Clinical Trials (CCT) in Department of Education and Research in Taipei City Hospital (TPECH) was launched in 2009 and the relevant facilities werefounded in 2010. It is located at the 8th floor of the main building in Ren-ai Branch. We aim to encourage investigators in TPECH to translate their biological discoveries into clinical settings i.e. to realize improving human health through science. We design a series of training programs to help professionals to gain a solid understanding of the entire clinical trials process – from development of a new medication and device to monitoring and surveillance of post marketing activities. The key feature of these training initiatives is to ensure that the clinical investigators are well grounded in protocol design, research process, data management and analysis along with understanding of records confidentiality and research subjects protection. Subjects’ rights should always be the top priority in clinical trials. All protocols for clinical trials must be reviewed by REC, the Institutional Review Board, in TPECH. For new medications and devices, the approval from Food and Drug Administration in Taiwan (TFDA) is alsomandatory.
Our center is devoted to partnering with principal investigator (PI), industry and other research organizations. We provide consulting services (including pre-contract review, budget planning, and anything relevant to the trial) for both PI and sponsor. We hope that the administrative processing of the trial can be performed as soon as possible with our help.

Originally known as Taoyuan Provincial Hospital, under the jurisdiction of the Department of Health, Taiwan Provincial Government, the Taoyuan General Hospital, Ministry of Health and Welfare, is located near the central area of the Provincial Highway 1 in the Greater Taoyuan region. Officially established on December 15, 1979, the hospital provided medical services on par with those of a medical center to the residents in the Greater Taoyuan region, which was lacking in medical resources. Due to government streamlining policies, the hospital was transferred under the jurisdiction of the Department of Health, Executive Yuan in July 1999. The Sinwu Branch of the Taoyuan General Hospital was officially established in July 2003 to serve the residents of rural villages. Due to structural reforms of the Executive Yuan, the hospital was renamed as Taoyuan General Hospital, Ministry of Health and Welfare on July 23, 2013.Since its establishment, the Hospital has implemented a substantial two-way cooperative education with the National Taiwan University Hospital, and a groundbreaking physician and instructor dual-employment system to recruit outstanding medical staff. Receiving strong support from the former Taiwan Provincial Government and the respect of the local residents, the system has successfully facilitated the upgrade and improvement of the hospital equipment.
150 years ago, the Ministers of the Infirmary (Camillians) started to develop in countries other than Italy, including Spain, France, Germany, and Peru in South America. After World War II, the Camillians, originated in Northern Italy, decided to step out to Yunnan, China in 1946. In 1952, Chinese Communist Party expelled all the foreign priests, brothers and sisters from the mainland China. Consequently, there are 6 priests and brothers, 4 sisters came to Yi-lan, while the other 4 turned to serve in Thailand.
In Camillians’ new arrival in Taiwan, the Taipei Bishop entrusted part of Lo-tung, Tung-shan, San-hsing, Ta-tung and Wu-chieh of Yi-lan County to them as their working field. In 1952, the Camillians rented the closed-out clinic named “Po-Ai” in June 15 and opened to serve the sick with Dr. John Janež’s first surgery in July 17. Two months later, they bought this single-story clinic and renamed it as St. Mary’s Hospital, which had only 12 beds by then. In 1955, the Camillians built medical wards themselves and the hospital got a total of 100 beds. At that time, Yi-lan County had a population of 260 thousand.
Tungs’Taichung Metro Harbor Hospital was established in 1971 by founder Dr. Jai-Chin Tung, a well-respected surgeon who upon completion of training at National Defense Medical Center returned to Shalu, Taichung to serve the community.Tungs’ hospital was established with a simple mission, to serve those who are in need.

We understand the importance of creating a system to minimize those risks in order to improve patient safety.For medication safety, we have the advanced medication packaging machine to ensure the correct dosage and sanitation.For fall safety, we have updated facilities, and continuous educations for patients, family members as well as staff on the various aspects of fall prevention. Fall injuries have often caused serious and unnecessary injuries. Hence by preventing fall, we are able to greatly enhance patient’s ability to recover from illness.Hand hygiene is the foundation of good medical practice; nosocomial infection can often be prevented if hand hygiene is being followed by health care professionals as well as patients alike. We continue to educate staff and patient on the importance of proper hand hygiene. Together, we are able to create a safer care environment.A vision to achieve excellence:Achieving medical care excellence is at the core of hospital development, by affiliating with top medical centers around the world, we are able to provide the best training opportunities for our medical teams.A comprehensive care approach is also an integral part for medical excellence, many medical centers and specialty teams are in place for a holistic care. Cardiac center, cancer care center are among the few that are highly specialized with consolidate resources to provide patient with a one stop care environment.In addition, stroke team, Da Vinci surgical team is among the many specialty teams created to provide prompt and specialized care.Tungs’ hospital will continue to find ways to breakthrough, to innovate, and to become a health care partner you can trust.

Our OriginsDr. Marcy Leroy Ditmanson, the son of American missionaries Fred and Emma Ditmanson, grew up in China, and was imbued with a deep love of China and its people. World War II broke out in China while he was studying towards a Masters’ Degree in History, but his first-hand experience of prison camps and wartime suffering made him decide to become a health care provider, so that he could share Jesus’ love with his beloved Chinese people. It was at this time that he also met his future wife, Joyce Stranks.
After completing his medical degree in the USA in 1957, Dr. Ditmanson came to Formosa, where his new wife also played a vital supporting role in his subsequent achievements – he first established a clinic in Chiayi in 1958 to bring mercy and hope to his many patients, and subsequently opened the thirty-bed Chiayi Christian Hospital (CYCH) in April 29, 1962.
Taiwan suffered a devastating polio outbreak in 1960s. Dr. Ditmanson was a surgeon, but had not received any training in orthopedics. In order to be able to treat scoliosis, at the age of 50, he returned to the USA and once again enrolled in medical school to study orthopedic surgery. In 1974, he brought his new knowledge to Taiwan, where he began performing orthopedic surgery and expanded the use of physical therapy. His Christ-like life had a positive impact on a good many doctors, nurses, ministers and administrators, who then shared their gifts with the people of Taiwan. Dr. Ditmanson’s leadership by example has ensured that Chiayi Christian Hospital is an institution focused on the needs of its patients, and its devotion to the service it provides has formed the basis for CYCH’s recognition and success.
Purpose /VisionChiayi Christian Hospital provides holistic care and medical care based on the core of Jesus’ teaching —“love your neighbor as yourself.”
