Thousands of patients in over 20 countries travel all the way to Taipei, Taiwan to visit Shin Kong Wu Ho-Su Memorial Hospital for its advanced technology and world-class facilities.
Its 256-slide Computerized Tomography (CT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) are up-to-date with the latest medical equipments to diagnose illnesses in clear-cut precision.
Its CT Scan was recently upgraded to GE's latest Revolution CT that delivers uncompromised image quality along with all-in-one clinical capabilities such as temporal resolution, spatial resolution, and spectral imaging. This is part of the hospital's aim to obtain the best equipment.
"We have the best medical equipment," International Health Center Supervisor, Karen Chang said.
A patient from Palau diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma, a type of breast cancer, expressed her admiration of the equipments that made her now presumably cancer free.
"What I love about this hospital is how they treat the sickness I have, which is cancer," patient Nestrada Jorgensen said. "Yesterday was the last day of therapy. I feel like I am better."
Check ups are offered in two packages. The first one is a comprehensive physical check up called Comprehensive + LD-CT, which includes painless upper gastrointestinal panendoscopy, colonoscopy, and detailed health screening results.
The second package is focused on women, called Women's Health + LD-CT, featuring a low-dose CT scan for lung cancer screening, breast ultrasound, and whole body bone density exam.
The fee for the Comprehensive +LD-CT is at NT$28,500 or P47,661, while the Women's Health + LD-CT is at NT$ 31,100 or P52,000.
Chang advised that physical check up is very important as it is the first step in detecting cancer in its early stages.
"Physical check up is very important, because you don't know maybe you have cancer," Chang said.
Smart motion-sensored doors that move in just a wave of a hand were also installed in various parts of the hospital especially restrooms.
