Promoting the upgrade of medical industry and improving the overall medical standard and service

In the 1970s, the two founders established Chang Gung Memorial Hospital (CGMH) in March 1973 out of a sense of mission to give back to the community, in response to the scarcity of medical resources in Taiwan. CGMH established seven hospitals in Taipei, Linkou, Keelung, Kaohsiung, Chiayi, Taoyuan, and Yunlin. Later, it was commissioned by the government to operate Fengshan Hospital and Tucheng Hospital on a build-operate-transfer (BOT) basis. It became one of the largest and most well-equipped general hospitals in the Far East.
