The Taiwan Changhua Christian Hospital (CCH) is sending its second medical team of 2017 to visit St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

The team, which will be in SVG from Nov. 19 to Dec. 9, is the 12th visit of the CCH medical team to SVG since 2010.

The team is comprised of seven members: Dr. Nina Kao (leader), Dr. Cheng Hsu Chen (Emergency Medicine), Dr. Wei-Jung Chang (General Surgery), Dr. Yun-Liang Chen (Chinese medicine), Dr. Hui-Ming Yen (anesthesiologist), Sr. Yun-Ju Lin (ICU nurse) and Sr. Sheng-Tsu Su (OR nurse).

During its visit, the team will work closely with the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.

In response to the request of local communities across the country and with the facilitation of the MCMH, Dr. Yun-Liang Chen will conduct outreach in Georgetown, Stubbs and Barrouallie, to provide Chinese medical services to Vincentians.

In the meantime, considering the current close cooperation between MCMH and CCH on anaesthesiological services, which has benefited more than 200 Vincentian patients in the past two months, the CCH specifically dispatched Dr. Hui-Ming Yen, an anaesthesiologist, to be one of the team members to provide anaesthesiological services at the MCMH.

MCMH and CCH were twined in August of 2010. Since then, the two hospitals have strengthened their cooperation and interaction continuously. In the May of 2017, one doctor and two pharmacists of MCMH from Kingstown visited CCH to participate in training programmes.
