    State-of-the-art cancer center seeks donation from Terry Gou (2019/06/12)

    Administrators of a state-of-the-art cancer center are seeking a donation from presidential hopeful Terry Gou. The National Taiwan University Cancer Center was completed last year with a NT$15 billion donation Gou made in 2007. It now needs another 8 to 10 billion NT to buy the equipment required for full-scale operations. Administrators hope Gou will make up the shortfall, so that the facility can open its doors as scheduled, on July 4.

    After a decade under construction, NTU Cancer Center was completed last year. It’s slated to open on July 4, but funding woes have put a spanner in the works.

    Construction began in 2007 with a NT$15 billion donation from Gou’s Yonglin Healthcare Foundation. This donation was for establishing the Yonglin Biomedical Engineering Hall, building a radiation science and proton therapy unit, and promoting biomedical projects. The agreement was that all costs for staff, operation, and medical equipment would be covered by NTU. In 2018, the cancer center was completed. Due to a multi-billion-dollar shortfall in NTU’s procurement budget, the center is not equipped for full-scale operations. Administrators have taken out a NT$1 billion emergency loan from the university’s endowment.

    Hoping Gou would put up more funding, NTU’s president Kuan Chung-ming arranged a meeting with the tech tycoon. But Gou canceled last minute, leaving the university at a loss for how to plug the gap in its budget.

    With anything that can be beneficial to cancer patients, money is absolutely not a concern.

    Gou had made his first donation years ago to set up a medical center in memory of his first wife and his younger brother, who both died from cancer. As July 4 draws near, it’s still up in the air whether the cancer center can officially open as planned.

    郭台銘捐百億蓋台大癌醫中心 營運陷窘境

    為了紀念死於癌症的前妻與弟弟,郭台銘2007年捐贈150億元蓋台大癌醫中心,是台灣歷來最大的醫院捐贈案。花了十年興建,去年底試營運,預定下個月開幕,但卻傳出營運陷入窘境。

    蓋了10年的台大癌症中心去年底落成,原定7月4號就要開幕,但卻驚傳變數。

    台大癌症中心,2007開始興建,永齡基金會捐贈150億元,籌建生醫工程館、癌醫及輻質中心,及生醫工程領域產學合作;而人事、經營費用及醫院儀器等,則由台大負責。2018年癌症中心落成,但仍缺80~100億採購癌症醫療器材,只能小規模營運,讓經營陷入窘境,已經跟台大校務基金借了10億元應急。

    由於郭台銘曾口頭承諾要持續捐贈的,台大校長管中閔上個月率台大高層希望見他討論,但郭董臨時變掛,沒現身,讓醫院增資再度落空。

    [[鴻海董事長 郭台銘(2015/11/15)]]
    “只要能夠對癌症病人有益的,經費絕對不是問題”

    過去的豪語言猶在耳,事實上,癌醫中心就是郭台銘為了紀念死於癌症的愛妻與弟弟而捐贈興建。眼看台大癌醫開幕在即,就怕資金沒到位,讓病患希望落空。
