Conversion from regular hospital to welfare hospital

In 1962, Holy Family Welfare Hospital expanded as general hospital under Catholic Medical University General Hospital and was not capable of treatments as original foundation had intended. We self-examined ourselves a conversion researcher was dispatched to visit and investigate the local residents. Then we found out that there are many people who are unable to pay for their treatments, therefore end their lives in solitude without anyone who had taken care of them. So general committee of the Little Servants of the Holy Family had decided to make a changeover, so that we ceased any charged treatments by 30th May 1990, and started free treatment targeting those who are suffering from illness and poverty on 23rd July 1990.
