National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) in Taiwan has entered a BOT hospital contract with privately owned Kaohsiung Medical University.
The NTHU Taoyuan Medical and Educational R&D Park will be implemented in phases.
The Taoyuan City Government has designated a land area of 7.2 hectares for the project. Out of this, 5 hectares have been reserved for the medical park, while the remaining 2.2 hectares are designated for the educational R&D Park.
The initial phase of the medical park will accommodate a total of 515 beds. This includes 329 general beds and 186 special beds.
The number of beds is projected to gradually increase to 910 in the future. The ultimate goal is to transform the facility into a teaching hospital at the medical center level.
Kaohsiung Medical University (KMU) will construct laboratories, classrooms, and dormitories for healthcare and medical students.
The NTHU Hospital will encompass 39 medical sub-specialties, including internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, and various other medical disciplines.
The hospital plans to introduce state-of-the-art medical technologies, develop telemedicine capabilities, and leverage AI and big data research outcomes.
Leveraging the advantages of the Aerotropolis, the NTHU Hospital intends to develop international healthcare services.
This strategic approach aims to attract international patients and provide specialized medical services on an international scale.
The first phase is scheduled to commence in 2024 and reach completion by 2028.
