The results are out for Taiwan’s latest hospital accreditation evaluation. Three new medical centers were added to Northern Taiwan, specifically in New Taipei and Hsinchu. Medical centers are at the top level in the health care system. They play a key role in supporting regional and district hospitals.

Medical centers represent the highest level of Taiwan’s health care system. Increasing the number of medical centers will affect payments, referrals, and the design of the tiered health care system. It will raise considerations for the entire health care network.

For the newly upgraded medical centers, co-pays are set to increase. Patients can expect to pay NT$420 for outpatient care, up from NT$240. Emergency care fees will rise from NT$400 to NT$750.

每四年一次的醫院評鑑,2020年碰上疫情,一延再延,最新的醫院評鑑結果出爐,北部新增三家醫學中心,分別位在新北市以及新竹。

[[衛福部長 薛瑞元]]
“增額兩家是台北慈濟醫院,跟衛生福利部的雙和醫院。增加合格認定的是新竹臺大分院。”

[[台灣醫務管理學會理事長 洪子仁]]
“醫學中心本身就是臺灣醫療照護體系的最上層,整個醫學中心數量的增加,它會連動到支付的制度,也會連動到轉診,跟分級診療制度的設計等,那這個可能要做系統性的考量。”

從區域醫院,升格為醫學中心的三家醫院,部分負擔費用,也將隨之提高,門診從240元漲到420元、急診則從400元漲到750元。
