Honored with Minister of Health and Welfare

 

Award for Medical-related Infectious

 

Diseases Prevention and Control Project

 

Korea University Ansan Hospital (President Woon-young Kim) received an

 

award from the Minister of Health and Welfare for “2019 Medical-related

 

Infectious Diseases Prevention and Control Project”.

 

 

Since 2017 as a regional medical center, Korea University Ansan Hospital

 

conducted a medical-related infectious disease prevention project with other

 

local hospitals and was engaged in various activities such as regular education,

 

consultation, and prevention management.

 

 

The hospital received this award in recognition of its outstanding contribution to

 

infection control such as the establishment and sharing of a screening process of

 

suspected COVID-19 cases with local hospitals to stem the spread of the virus

 

started at the end of 2019.

 

 

“The public’s interest and awareness of infectious diseases are heightened due

 

to the spread of COVID-19, so we must fully commit to the infection control,”

 

Director of Infection Control Office Dae-Won Park said. “We will do our best to

 

overcome this difficult time by establishing a response system for infectious

 

diseases which includes not just regional hospitals but also public institutions

 

and private companies.”
