The Department of Pathology of Tungs’ Taichung Metroharbor Hospital (thereafter referred to as Tungs’ Hospital or “the hospital”) was established in 1971 as part of the Shalu Tungs’ Taichung Metroharbor Hospital. It is a legal practice unit approved by the health competent authority, with medical testing and technology as its core services. In June 2001, the Shalu Tungs’ Taichung Metroharbor hospital built a new hospital in the Wuqi Town, and applied for the merger of the two hospitals for the convenience of management. On July 1, 2007, it was officially named as Tungs’ Taichung Metroharbor Hospital.
The Department of Pathology has established the Clinical Pathology Division (including clinical hematology, clinical biochemistry, serum immunology, outpatient examination, emergency examination, blood bank operations, bacterial testing, etc.), the Anatomical Pathology Division (including anatomical pathology, cytopathology and molecular biology), and the Molecular Pathology Division. There are a total of 71 medical personnel, including 5 doctors, 61 medical technologists, and 5 assistants. In addition to joining the Association, all our medical practitioners are also actively involved in various academic professional groups such as the Taiwan Medical Association, Pathology Society, Taiwan Society of Laboratory medicine, Taiwan Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Taiwan Society of Blood Transfusion, Taiwan Society of Microbiology, and Taiwan Society of Parasitology, etc. Participating in these academic groups allows our medical practitioners to continue receiving on-job training and education, enhancing the quality of our work and service.
