About Us
The Department of Pediatrics was established soon after the opening of Shuang-Ho Hospital. The department had successive openings of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Sick Newborn Care Unit and the Pediatric Ward at that same year. Pediatric clinical services include outpatient, inpatient, electrophysiological examination, and various ultrasound examinations. Our department currently has twelve full-time attending physicians and three part-time attending physicians. The specialists provide patients and their family with coordination and integration of care.
The department upholds the concept of respecting the patient, community first service philosophy, and the pursuit of sustainable progress in order to provide the service.
