Min-Sheng General Hospital
Established in 1975, Min-Sheng General Hospital has more than 600 beds and 100 physicians and surgeons. Min-Sheng staff members pride themselves on seamless care and one-on-one services to patients.
Min-Sheng's International Department boasts “selective, low-risk, highly competitive health services and packages”—some of them set up to work with US health insurance plans. Such packages include coronary artery bypass graft, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), cardiac catheterization, total knee and total hip replacement, LASIK eye surgery, hernia repair, weight-loss surgery, colporrhaphy (surgical repair of a defect in the vaginal wall), vaginal hysterectomy, liposuction, tummy tuck, breast augmentation or reduction, and laminectomy (a spinal surgery for relieving back pain).
While Min-Sheng has been serving its local patients for more than 30 years, its international services have expanded greatly since travel restrictions have recently eased. Min-Sheng’s specialty centers focus on minimally invasive surgery, nephrology, digital imaging and digitally guided surgery, oncology, cardiology, gynecology, fertility treatment, plastic and cosmetic surgery, three-dimensional stereotactical scanning, sleep medicine, LASIK eye surgery, and VIP Health Screenings.
For health travelers, Min-Sheng arranges airport pickup (average 20 minutes from airport to hospital), taxi service, hotel accommodations (including wheelchair-accessible rooms and special diets), a 24-hour immediate phone connection to hospital staff, and an embassy connection for emergencies.
