Buddhist Tzu Chi General Hospital

Unverified non-profit organisation

The Buddhist Tzu Chi General Hospital in Hualien was opened to the public on August 17, 1986. It was established in an effort to cure the sick and to eradicate poverty. It is the first hospital in Taiwan that does not require security deposits from patients, thus making medical care available to all poor people. The hospital treats all patients equally and refers any short and long-term needy patients to the Tzu Chi Foundation.
