Dues to the fact that there are many diseases that the present medication cannot be cured, many of the old people who suffer from throat infection and typical allergy came to Thian Fah Foundation Hospital because they believed that our doctors here can cure those diseases. The hospital gains its reputation from those satisfied patients.
Many patients that came to Thian Fah Foundation Hospital were surprised because not only their diseases were cured, but also they did not have to pay any medical fees at all. After our Chinese Medicines Department had been established for 104 years ago, the gnerous patients who wish to donate, they can donate directly to our donated counter.
Chinese Medicine Department of Thian Fah Foundation Hospital cures 250-300 patients everyday, and gives away 18,000-23,000 packets of Chinese Medicines to the patients. This number sets a standard for the hospital. Therefore, every Sunday Morning from 5.30a.m. - 8.30 a.m., our hospital sends a team of doctor and nurses out to give free medical check-up to the exercisers. The excercisers can check not only blood pressure level but also blood sugar level and the doctor will give advises to the patients too. The check-ups covered 3,061 persons so far, which is about 765 person per day. The number of people who will come to check-up tends to increase.
