Message from the Superintendent

Dr. Chien-Liang Liu

With God’s protection and guidance, along with the dedication of our predecessors in the past 140 years, MacKay Memorial Hospital has become what it is today. We are only a tiny part of the torrent of flux in history. “In the face of severe and rapid environmental changes in the world, we must uphold our commitment to improve medical care, pursue excellence, practice innovation, develop steadily, cultivate talents, and achieve sustainable succession.” At the same time, we must also ponder and reflect on, “What is the purpose of MacKay Memorial Hospital’s existence?” Let’s keep not forget our first passions from the very first beginning. We must hold on to our core values and fulfill the mission of medical evangelism.

The core values of MacKay Memorial Hospital are honesty, integrity, humility, and mercy. We seek to love others as we love ourselves and work hard to care for the underprivileged. We follow the motto of “burning out rather than rusting out.” We value innovation, excellence, and sustainable development.

Many of our employees have already internalized these values and hold them dear to their hearts, thus building up and creating a unique institutional culture in MacKay Memorial Hospital. Because of this, our employees are united, have high morale, and are consistently recognized by government officials, accreditation evaluators, and the public. We must continue to uphold these core values. Especially when we encounter difficult choices, our most important consideration is how to remain true to our core values.

MacKay Memorial Hospital is a medical center. We seek to cooperate with government policies to fulfill all the responsibilities required of a medical center, such as developing medical services for intensive care, implementing graded medical care to improve the regional medical standard, improving medical quality and patient safety, and leading the development of medical and healthcare technology and participating in international health activities. In addition, we must continue to invest in medical services in remote areas, develop geriatric medicine in response to an aging society, and fulfill our social responsibility in long-term care.

As the Superintendent of a medical system hospital, I am mindful of our employees who untiringly serve our patients. I am not just responsible for the health and well-being of our employees but must also pay attention to their growth and self-fulfillment. MacKay Memorial Hospital is founded on the love of Jesus Christ. Previous Superintendents have emphasized kindness to employees. Hence, our staff welfare has been superior to that of other hospitals. I will continue to work hard on this. When we treat our employees with love, I believe they will be happy in their work and care for patients with love.

I sincerely believe God loves MacKay Memorial Hospital and its employees. Let us respond to God’s love by loving each other and making concerted efforts to care for and love our patients with compassion. May all of us unite and make progress together.

The grace of God be with you. Wishing you good health, peaceful mind and joyful soul.
