Pres­i­dent Ma is given a clean bill of health at his an­nual checkup

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Pres­i­dent Ma Ying-jeou is in good health, the hos­pi­tal con­duct­ing his an­nual health checkup said Satur­day.

Ex­cept for Ma’s old in­juries to his right knee, he is oth­er­wise healthy, ac­cord­ing to the China Med­i­cal Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal in Taichung City.

Ma is 178 cen­time­ters tall and weighs 75.1 kilo­grams, with a Body Mass In­dex (BMI) of 23.7.

Ma’s checkup took place at China Med­i­cal Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal in Taichung City and com­pleted at about 4:45pm. It is the first time that the pres­i­dent has picked a hos­pi­tal far away from Taipei for his an­nual checkup. The pre­vi­ous hos­pi­tals were lo­cated in the cap­i­tal or Taoyuan City, both of which are in North­ern Tai­wan.

The pres­i­dent has vis­ited a dif­fer­ent hos­pi­tal each year to demon­strate the pro­fes­sion­al­ism and qual­ity of ser­vice avail­able at lo­cal hos­pi­tals and to learn more about the gen­eral sit­u­a­tion at hos­pi­tals in Tai­wan, ac­cord­ing to a pres­i­den­tial aide.
