Dr. Tung came from a big family of 8 siblings, by being the oldest child of the family; he learnt to share the responsibility with his parents at a young age, which significantly shaped his personality of being responsible and thrifty. These traits are being brought into the work place to establish a good foundation for a successful medical team.
Upon the establishment of the hospital, there were many young graduates joining the hospital, Dr. Tung provided them with strict and quality medical trainings to not only advance ones capability, as well as to ensure the best care can be carried out by every medical staff. The hospital not only serves as a safe haven for the community, as well as the home to many staffs who works closely with each other like a big family to serve countless patients.
The care for each other among colleagues also shows through another example, once 10 of the hospital staffs crammed into a mini pickup truck to attend a festival in the neighborhood where a feast is served. After the festival, they took some food for other staffs that were on duty, which really shows the close relationship among hospital staffs and the communities.
We were the first hospital to waive the deposit for emergency hospitalization, which could avoid financial difficulties that leads to delayed medical treatment. If patients were unable to afford the medical bills, Dr. Tung would try his best to cover the bill for them. Another example, Dr. Tung helped out a young plastic surgeon, Dr. Ma during difficult time, up till nowadays, Dr. Ma is still grateful for Dr. Tung’s help and tells the story to his friends.
Ever since the Tung’s Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital we founded, Dr. Tung has always worked hard and constantly reminded all staff that “we should always bear in mind our mission is to save lives and give back to the community”. Because of the hard work and dedication, the Tungs’ Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital could grow and serve the community with the best medical care.
In order to established a more comprehensive care system, we incorporate more services into our current system, such as the establishment of “Sha Tung Health System”, Nursing home, cultural and educational foundation, and in the future, long term care facilities, medical drug & equipment company and bio-tech are expected to be set up to become a world class medical facility.
Dr. Tung is the Tungs’ Taichung MetroHarbor Hospital's spirit forever!
