|The Shuang Ho Hospital neuroscience division is one of the fastest-growing clinical divisions in the TMU Healthcare System. The neuroscience specialist training center was launched the year Shuang Ho opened, and after 10 years of effort it has gained a good reputation within Taiwan. Currently 19 attending physicians serve Shuang Ho Hospital’s neurology division, including specialists in stroke, dementia, sleep medicine, movement disorders, epilepsy, peripheral and autonomic nervous disorders, dizziness and balance disorders. In collaboration with the national policy to improve acute and critical care, Shuang Ho established a stroke center that is among the nation’s top providers of acute stroke treatment with intravenous thrombolysis. Shuang Ho also is among the few hospitals in New Taipei City that can carry out arterial thrombectomy.
In 2015, the Health Promotion Administration of the Ministry of Health and Welfare funded TMU’s center for dementia. This center’s director was involved in New Taipei City’s health planning, and created Taiwan’s first ward dedicated to dementia patients in collaboration with New Taipei City’s vertical integration policy promoting this care model. This facilitates the best neurological clinical services with diverse and comprehensive training. Deputy Superintendent Hu also leads the TMU College of Medicine neuroscience program. By integrating clinical teaching, research and service for neuroscience at the three hospitals, the neurology division has received support for 17 research projects from the Ministry of Science and Technology in the past three years, helping to build the division’s reputation for innovative neuroscience research.
