Formosa SOS

The origin of FORMOSA SOS promotion

      Tungs’ Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital has entered the international medical transfer service field for the seventh year. We have saved many patients' precious lives or successfully fulfilled their family's wishes. However, many family members of the disease grieved because of their inability to find our team in time, causing regrets that parents and relatives could never forget.
"So good service, why is it not good to promote?" is the most complaints our team heard.
"Failed to promote and save more lives" is the pain in our team's heart.
      For this reason, Tungs’ Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital launched the overseas emergency medical rescue innovation brand - FORMOSA SOS.
      This year, the Ministry of Health and Welfare commissioned the Foreign Trade Association to handle the "103 Special or Strategic Medical Industry Brand Counseling Program" to assist medical institutions to promote special medical brands. Tungs’ Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital was selected for counseling and subsidies.

       In order to shape the image of MIT, the Foreign Trade Association established the “Taiwan Brand Image Foundation”, and the FORMOSA SOS of Tungs’ Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital is worthy of support and counseling, making it a safe guard for international tourist and Taiwanese businessman. The patron saint of the government's foreign units.


The name meaning of FORMOSA SOS

      SOS has become the abbreviation of medical personnel for international medical transfer in Taiwan. There are EMSOS, International SOS, SOS China, China SOS and so on. FORMOSA SOS is advertised as a brand tailored for the people of the country.


The biggest difference between FORMOSA SOS and international rescue companies

      International relief companies are tailored to the interests of commercial insurance. The birth and growth of FORMOSA SOS is due to urgent medical needs.

      A serious medical condition such as type A aortic dissection, cerebral aneurysm rupture, and spinal cord injury has been a serious problem that international rescue companies cannot actively rescue. At present, only the Tungs’ Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital FORMOSA SOS can provide all-round medical transfer services by cooprating with ZTE, Hanxiang Airlines and Feite Air which have passed the five-stage certification of the Civil Aviation Administration, and also equipped stretcher with the regular class of economic flights.

      Deputy Secretary-General Ye Mingshui of the Republic of China Foreign Trade Development Association said that the only countries with international emergency medical institutions in Asia are Singapore and Taiwan. Taiwan's international medical technology, standards, equipment, and even personnel scheduling are not inferior to those of Singapore, and the Tungs’ Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital FORMOSA SOS is the most comprehensive resource and manpower for domestic international rescue services. Recently, the Boston Medical Rescue Organization actively contacts and negotiates cooperation, so it is expected to polish the signboards in the international arena and serve the people of the country and let Taiwan add more light to the international community.

      Dr. Lu Lihua, the CEO of FORSOSA SOS, was originally an acute and serious specialist. He is now 365 days and 24 hours a day, and is ready to go abroad to transfer the patient  back to his home country for "air 119". He not only carries his passport with him, but also has more than a dozen foreign currency of each country within hospital.

      Dr. Lu Lihua said that the number of Chinese people traveling abroad, studying and starting a business is increasing, but in many areas, the medical standards and convenience are not good. Therefore, it is most beneficial to send patients back to Taiwan for treatment, and the vitality of patients is counted every second. Rescuing tasks immediately, no matter where you are or at any time, quickly develop the required medical equipment, transportation routes, call for support manpower, and assess whether the patient's physical condition can take the opportunity to get the patient in the first place from unfamiliar overseas returning home safely.

Advantage

      The acute and serious doctors and nursing teams are usually required to face the feedback and integration of patients, family members, specialists, psychologists and social workers, and the international medical transfer focuses on safe escorts and the ability to adapt to various situations. Make the correct clinical judgment; therefore, it is more appropriate for an acute and serious doctor and nursing team with aeromedical knowledge to perform the transfer task than a team with only a specialist.



     International medical transfer training and auditing: training with new players in the aviation industry and regular recurrent training.
