TMU Shuang Ho Hospital has long served the Marshall Islands by helping to address medical needs. The Pacific nation, which Taiwan has diplomatic relations with, has benefited from TMU assistance for medical and health-related construction projects, and the hospital also has provided rolling medical services and expert visits relating to disease prevention, health screenings and consultations, setting up information platforms and training. Through these collaborations, local people can get better health information as well as high-quality medical services in well-equipped clinical environments.


The team dispatched by the TMU Shuang Ho Hospital customized a practical training and internship plan to help medical education in the Marshall Islands. Localized medical technology training can help to address the “brain drain” caused by practitioners staying away after overseas internships. This strengthens the islands’ medical care and quality, and makes it more convenient for citizens to receive medical care and treatment.

TMU Shuang Ho Hospital has assisted Majuro Hospital in simplifying consultation processes and setting up correct patient history data. In 2015, the TMU group assisted the government in donating and setting up a PACS medical imaging system, significantly reduces times spent on radiology and evaluating images during consultations. In the future, TMU Shuang Ho Hospital will help set up a customized hospital information system as well.
