[Performance]A Trophy at Last

Hanyang University (HYU) boasts many talented athletes, and the volleyball team has many of them. After many years of hard work, the university volleyball team won a trophy in this year’s Cheongyang National Volleyball Competition, defeating its rival 3 to 1 in the final play-off. The competition was held in Cheongyang-gun from July 16th to 23rd, co-hosted by the Korean University Volleyball Federation (KUVF) and Cheongyang County Volleyball Federation. Among the players, the competition is commonly referred to as "the second competition." This is because there are two competitions during each summer vacation, aside from the year-round tournament during the spring and fall semesters. HYU volleyball team was not able to make it to the final round during the "first competition." Surprisingly enough, this is what has been happening with the team for several years. Director Yang Jin-woong commented, “Although their final rank was 6th, defeating last year's champions on the way boosted the team’s ego a lot.” The team captain let the director take the credit. “The training got much more organized and made it possible to win,” smiled Ryu Seong-ju (Sports Industry, 4th year). Ryu Seong-ju (Sports Industry, 4th yr), the captain of the volleyball team, commented that he wants to make it to the play-off this year and bring home a prize on August 1st. The toughest match in the competition was the final round, where HYU met Kyunghee University. “Our players couldn’t even move their legs in the first round,” reminisced Yang. That fear did not come from the loss to Kyunghee during the home-and-away matches earlier this year, but the fact that they had never made it to the final round. But with the director’s fierce encouragement, the players were able to play as well as they had during practice. The captain also revealed a secret source of encouragement from the coach. “He promised the team two more days of vacation and 1 million won prize money. That really raised the team spirit,” laughed Ryu. Both the director and the captain showed confidence for the coming home-and-away games. Ryu emphasized that although the HYU volleyball team did not make it to the play-offs for the past four years, it seems highly possible this year. “When I was on the university volleyball team, I was proud to be part of it. I will work hard to get that glory back,” said Yang with contentment. The upcoming season starts when school starts again and runs until October. Wish the team luck!

[Performance]Hanyang University Hospital Receives Top Ranking

The Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service evaluates every hospital in Korea and rates them into six tiers, with the last one being "unscorable." Hanyang University Hospital has been rated in the top tier in four major cancer departments for three years in a row. As there are many good hospitals in Seoul, a hospital has to have almost perfect scores in every aspect in order to rank in the top tier. News H visited the director of Hanyang University Hospital, Lee Kwang-hyun to find out their secret. Lee Kwang- hyun , the hospital director, stressed that his efforts to overcome the difficult times were not futile. “There is really no secret to the gradings,” muttered Lee. He mentioned that every member of the hospital including professors', doctors', nurses', pharmacists', and interns' striving to provide better medical service to the patients made it come true. Lee especially credited the professors from each cancer department. The Health Insurance Review and Assessment service’s grading is the result of 2016’s performance. Documents and information were collected last year from September to December, assessed earlier this year, and announced this June. "Safely trustable hospital" (Is this the accepted translation of the motto? It doesn't sound very natural. If it can be changed, I would recommend, "Safe and trustworthy hospital." Hanyang University Hospital's motto. Surprisingly enough, our university hospital had a tough time just a few years ago. Rumors spread that we might have to close due to the worsening management situation. Lee mentioned that there were two things that brought about the betterment of such a dire situation. First was the cooperation between the labor and the management. “Communication is the key. Without it, suspicion and misunderstandings pile up and can cause disasters,” said Lee. Although it is very difficult for two groups with conflicting interests to work harmoniously with each other, through their efforts to be transparent for the workers and members of the hospital, the labor force and the management came to understand each other and worked towards the growth of the hospital. The second aspect was for the hospital to “really work as a hospital” through a “sensible system." Lee acknowledged that in the past, there were some systemic failures where the hospital was not serving the patients but rather focusing on its own interests. For example, the reception desk used to close at 7 p.m. sharp even if there were some patients still in the doctors' office. After the acknowledgment of this shortcoming in service, the hospital tried to amend the system to work for the patients and to provide as high a quality of service as possible. Thanks to the efforts of every member from every corner of the hospital, our university hospital was able to receive not only receive a top-tier rating in the four major cancer departments, but we also scored high on other indexes such as for treating rheumatism, caring for patients who have had a stroke, the use of antibiotics for infants, and more. Lee was confident that the hospital will be ranked in the top tier again next year as well. He commented that the motto of Hanyang University Hospital is to become “safely trustworthy hospital," smiling. Kim So-yun Photos by Kang Cho-hyun
