Taipei, May 31 (CNA) Min-Sheng General Hospital in Taoyuan County is fast gaining a reputation in China for its excellent services, the hospital said Friday. On May 28, the hospital took part in an event held by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council in Beijing to promote Taiwan's medical industry, and Chinese patients who have received treatment in Taiwan were invited to speak about their experience. Among the patients who spoke was Shang Liyun, who was suffering from a herniated lumbar disc in March 2012 and could hardly walk. After failing to find treatment at hospitals in Beijing and Shanghai, Shang was advised by a Taiwanese colleague to try Min-Sheng, according to a statement issued by the hospital. Acting on the recommendation, Shang finally traveled to Taiwan and was treated at Min-Sheng with a minimally invasive spinal operation that restored his ability to walk normally. Shang said he was very lucky to have experienced the professional attention and comfortable environment at Min-Sheng and that he will visit the hospital again later this year for a health check, the statement said. According to Min-Sheng, it treated 7,000 foreign patients in the first half of last year, with a significant increase seen in the number from China. (By Chiu Chun-chin and Y.F. Low)
