Local blogger Spencer Pangborn warns that things have changed for medical exams for an ARC:

In the past, you could go to practically any hospital in Taichung, public or private, to receive a routine physical examination. This would then be used as the official medical release stating that you’re physically fit to reside in Taiwan. Once you pass the physical examination, your employer then applies for your work permit.

However, as of July 15, there are now only 2 hospitals in Taichung that have been approved by the government to administer these examinations. Unfortunately, neither of these hospitals are in Taichung City.

2. Feng Yuan - Feng Yuan Hospital (豐原醫院) Map (English)

I went to the hospital in Sha Lu and luckily my director drove me out there. The examination center is not easy to find and there are no signs in English to help you. Hopefully things will improve once they get settled. It really felt like this place is temporary.

Spencer has posted some vids and pics of the process. Is this for the whole of Taichung city and county? Or just Taichung city?
