TAICHUNG, JEN-AI HOSPITAL: TALI
With increased services now available on the Internet,
from ordering photo reprints to shopping on-line, Jen-Ai
Hospital: Tali unveiled its "Baby Web Nursery" to help
parents provide a picture of their newborn baby to friends
and families all around the world.
This free service was created by Jen-Ai Hospital: Tali,
at the request of the parents who wanted their friends and
families that were unable to come in person, to see the
baby on the web. After the baby is born, the webpage with
basic information and picture of the baby is uploaded within
72 hours to be shown to the general public.
"Similar services are offered in some of the hospitals
in the United States, but none of the major hospitals in
Taiwan has yet to provide this kind of service," says
Mark K. Chan, Project Manager of Jen-Ai Hospital: Tali.
"It is about time that this service should be presented
to all mothers-to-be who have friends and families, outside
the city or outside Taiwan," adds Chan.
Jen-Ai Hospital: Tali has just modernized its Chinese
website (http://www.jah.org.tw) and introduced its new English
website (http://www.jah.org.tw/english.asp). The hospital
also plans to add information regarding proper care of the
baby and other relevant information on its "Baby Web Nursery,"
in the very near future. Jen-Ai Hospital: Tali's "Baby Web Nursery" website can be found at: http://baby.jah.org.tw/
In addition, Jen-Ai Hospital: Tali is in the process of
creating "International Patient Center" to accommodate
the growing medical needs of the foreign communities in
Taiwan and is tentatively scheduled to open during the summer
