Abstract

This study aimed to explore the medical needs in New Taipei City in order to provide background information for planning community health services. This study used a cross-sectional survey, with convenience sampling of residents from the New Taipei City districts, including Yonghe, Zhonghe, Banqiao, Tucheng. A total of 1, 847 valid questionnaires were retrieved. The results showed that male respondents visited surgical services (40.3%) most, while females expected hospitals to provide more free community clinics (29.9%). Older respondents requested surgical or gynecological services more. Respondents from Banqiao district demanded more health education classes (46.5%). Respondents with a higher educational level were more likely to visit dermatology clinics and expected hospitals to provide health education classes. Unemployed respondents (59.3%) visited surgical services most, while house wives (63.9%) and students (63.7%) sought services in internal medicine most. Approximately 70% of the respondents expected health counseling related services. Only 23% of the adults had a yearly health check-up. The study findings suggest that medical institutions in New Taipei City can strengthen their services in free community clinics, public health education classes, and elderly care. Also they can facilitate regular health check-up in the community to prevent disease and promote health.
