We have witnessed an inspiring year of 2013, when a structural reform of medical and health system was taken place in China.

The year of 2014 will be critical for us to further medical reform and development. It will also be a turning point for us to face new challenges in the course of development. We will put the South Campus Compounds into use, which will greatly improve the medical service and relief the tension of fighting over patient wards. Moreover, cutting-edge medical equipment will be brought in at the new compounds. It is expected that the new establishment will lay a solid foundation for our hospital’s sustainable development.
