St. Jude Hospital signed an Agreement of Twinning with the Changhua Christian Hospital on 8th July, 2009.  The Changhua Christian Hospital in central Taiwan is a 1600 beds medical centre and teaching hospital, employing over 3,800 people and receiving approximately 5,000 patient-visits daily. According to the Agreement, both medical institutions agree to undertake a comprehensive exchange of information on the health sector, provision of international volunteers and to facilitate the increase in knowledge of health care professionals through the conduct of seminars and professional training and exchanges of staff on the basis of equality and reciprocity.  Since then, the Changhua Christian Hospital has hosted three-month intensive training programmes for two groups of seven members of the medical, nursing and technical staff from St. Jude Hospital. All the mentioned programmes serve as essential measures for the capacity-building of St. Jude Hospital. 

 

Based on the same Agreement, the Changhua Christian Hospital has sent 5 delegations of medical volunteers to serve at St. Jude Hospital since 21st November 2009. Members of the five delegations returned to Taiwan with gratitude for the assistance and hospitality they had received from the staff of St. Jude Hospital in general and the working experiences they had acquired during their service which already broadened their vision and knowledge and would surely have tremendous impact on their future careers.
