Tainan’s current Christian hospital began with the work of the missionary Dr. James Laidlaw Maxwell. Dr. Maxwell started his first clinic on Tainan’s west side, but set up another on the east side in a building that is now Tainan School for the Deaf. They referred to that building as Jiùlóu, or old building. The current hospital was set up at its current location in 1900. It is called Xīnlōu, or new building, but is usually written in Pe̍h-ōe-jī script as Sin-lâu. Maxwell’s son, James Laidlaw Maxwell Jr., helped found the hospital with his father and worked in the hospital from 1900 to 1923. Mrs. Thomas Barclay, a nurse, also worked closely with the hospital. There is a statue of Maxwell in front of the hospital and an exhibition hall dedicated to Maxwell inside the hospital, but the hall can only be viewed by appointment.

Tainan Municipal Hospital
Tainan Municipal Hospital was projected and established in 1979 by the mayor, Su Nan-Cheng. The groundbreaking was in May, 1980. After completing the outline construction in 1982, the building became isolated due to shortage of funds and other factors. Tainan City Government then tried hard to look for private organizations to take over this hospital, but in vain. Tainan Municipal Hospital was abandoned until Lin Liang-Hwei, the legislator, negotiated with Hwang Ming-Ho, another legislator at that time, to take over this hospital in 1987.

Fu Ur An Women's Clinic
Ladies looking for a clean, professional, non-creepy ob-gyn or pediatric clinic, check this place out! Choosing the right clinic is a sometimes sensitive choice for Western ladies, especially me. I saw Dr. Jeong. She speaks excellent English, takes the time to talk about problems, and is discreet about all your you-know-whats. Very pleased with the environment and attitude. Some nurses speak little English but will scurry to find one who does. You'll need to make an appointment, so stop in early.
