TAICHUNG, JEN-AI HOSPITAL - DALI
¡@¡@With increased services now available
on the Internet, from ordering photo reprints to shopping on-line,
Jen-Ai Hospital - Dali unveiled its "Baby Web" to help parents
provide a picture of their newborn baby to friends and families
all around the world.
¡@¡@This free service was created by Jen-Ai Hospital - Dali, at
the request of the parents who wanted their friends and families
that were unable to come in person, to see the baby on the web.
After the baby is born, the webpage with basic information and
picture of the baby is uploaded within 72 hours to be shown
to the general public.
¡@¡@"Similar services are offered in some of the hospitals in
the United States, but none of the major hospitals in Taiwan
has yet to provide this kind of service," says Mark K. Chan,
Project Manager of Jen-Ai Hospital - Dali. "It is about time
that this service should be presented to all mothers-to-be who
have friends and families, outside the city or outside Taiwan,"
¡@¡@Jen-Ai Hospital - Dali has just modernized its Chinese website
(http://www.jah.org.tw) and introduced its new English website
(http://www.jah.org.tw/english.asp). The hospital also plans
to add information regarding proper care of the baby and other
relevant information on its "Baby Web," in the very near future.
Jen-Ai Hospital - Dali's "Baby Web" website can be found at:

needs of the foreign communities in Taiwan and is tentatively
scheduled to open during the summer of 2003.
