Taiwan Church News 2649, December 8, 2002
Reported by Lin Yi-ying. Translated and rewritten by David

   The North Central region of Taiwan's West Coast recently got a
new modern medical facility with the opening of the Hsin-chu
branch of Mackay Memorial Hospital.  Mackay is an agency of the
Presbyterian Church in Taiwan (PCT).  The branch officially came
into operation at the end of November.	Hospital and Church
officers and dignitaries were present for a ceremony and service
of thanksgiving worship.  When branch superintendent Wei Chih-tau
officially received his appointment he declared that the hospital
was equipped to be a zero pollution discharge facility.
    The new branch cost three billion Taiwan Yuan (86 million
Euros) to build and equip.  It is located near to the Hsin-chu
Science Based Industrial Zone and a five-minute drive from the
Taiwan Area Freeway.
   In his remarks, PCT General Assembly General Secretary William
J. K. Lo said that the Hsin-chu branch is a hospital of love.  He
declared that whole person healing and the value of life were
hallmarks of Rev. Mackay, who died 100 years ago, and of the
hospital that bears his name today.  He noted that people all
around the country are familiar with the name "Mackay", and that
the Hsin-chu facility will only serve to spread that fame
