The Health administration
organization may be traced back to 1945 when Taiwan was recovered
from Japan. It began as former Health Branch of Public Affairs Section
in Chiayi City government. In 1947, Chiayi City Health Center was
established. In 1950, the local government corporations were implemented,
therefore Taiwan Provincial Government reorganized accordingly. Chiayi
City was incorporated under Chiayi County, so Chiayi City Health Center
was reshuffled as Chiayi County Health Center.On July 1, 1982, Chiayi
City resumed the provincial city status, and thus reestablished Chiayi
City Bureau of Health, which shared the same location with Chiayi
County Bureau of Health till July, 1987. Meanwhile, 18 people from
the defunct Chiayi City Health Stations and 5 people from County Bureau
of Health, plus 15 newly increased posts make 38 people altogether
for Chiayi City Bureau of Health, who are not only in charge of services
and duties in the Bureau but also are responsible to take care of
former health stations' public health programs such as immunizations.
Then East and West District Health Stations were set up successively,
and East District Health Station Building and Chiayi City Health Building
were also inaugurated to use. Vacant posts in manning quota were filled
too. Additionally, Intranet networking was constituted within the
Bureau as well as all services and duties are computerized, so the
quality and efficiency were elevated significantly. In order to maintain
the performance of services and duties above a certain level and standard
specification, the Bureau has taken Total Quality Management (TQM)
and Quality Control Circle Activities since 1999, and that helped
us to be awarded ISO9002 at the end of 2000. This privilege primarily
confirms us in the quality elevation of our services.
To abide by Local Institution
Law and to fulfill the essence of self-government, at the end of 2000,
the Bureau reorganized the structure on condition that there were
only 3 staff added to the manning quota. With the proper adjustment
we expect to be more efficient in future public health implementations
so that the Bureau could be better services in various health promotion
programs, which can meet the public health demands for the City.
With the aim to preserve
the health for the citizens, we constantly adjust and pace our steps.
At present, we try very hard to the limits in pushing forward various
health programs to meet the objective "Healthy City, Tender Hometown".
Base on the health promotion, the prevention of diseases and the elevation
of medical quality, we serve as the health guardian for the citizens.
At the meantime, we propose to melt health to daily life. Hopefully
to built up a healthy and warm happy city under the full effort made
by our whole citizens.
