Groundbreaking for TVGH's new operation building

Taipei Veterans General Hospital (TVGH) today held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new operation building, with Deputy Minister of the Veterans Affairs Council (VAC) Lu Chia-kai (呂嘉凱), Acting Superintendent Lee Fa-Yauh (李發耀), the four vice superintendents, and representatives from the construction team jointly attending the event.

This four-story building will have 17 operating rooms (including hybrid operating rooms and MRI equipment), with a total floor area of 6,526 square meters. Its total construction cost is estimated at NT$700 million (US$24.2 million). The project is slated for completion in 2022 and inauguration in 2023.


According to Acting Superintendent Lee, currently there are 44 operating rooms in TVGH’s Chung-cheng Building and Shih-yuan Building. Due to the steady growth of surgical visits and surgery hours, the hospital is running short of operating rooms, whose flow also fails to meet its requirements. Besides, with an expired permit ten years later, Shih-yuan Building will be demolished and renovated. Considering all these factors, TVGH planned to construct a new operation building on the left rear of Chung-cheng Building for its future medical needs and long-term development.
