This is the earliest established psychiatric institute in Taiwan.

The name changed from previous Japanese-style to a Chinese one after the administration shift in 1945. The whole hospital moved to current position in Taoyuan city in 1979, and therefore the organization was renamed again as Taoyuan Mental Hospital (TMH).



Pediatric Rehabilitation Center of Taoyuan General Hospital.
Here we offer family-centered early intervention for developmental delayed children, and the intervention process contains five steps: discover, doubt, diagnose, treatment, family support and empower. By means of our intervention process, we can help parents to truly look into children’s developmental states, to face their children’s deficits, to receive early intervention, and finally to become the perfect “expert “for the care of their children. Our early intervention professionals includes doctors, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, speech and audiologists, clinical psychologists, and social workers. Furthermore, we cooperate with the Assistive technology center that could provide direct services. We hope our practice of family centered care and supports can make sure the parents and family members not only be part of the early intervention team but also the biggest promoter for children health and well-being.
