Updated: 2019-11-28

Shanghai Artemed Hospital, the first foreign-funded hospital in the China Shanghai Pilot Free Trade Zone, officially began receiving patients on Nov 25, two months after it announced the start of operations.

The hospital was co-built by Gaobo Healthcare Group, Silver Mountain Capital and Germany's Artemed Group.

It is the first foreign-funded general hospital in the Shanghai Free Trade Zone and also a pilot project for the further opening up of the service sector.

The hospital has a planned floor area of about 60,000 square meters. The first phase will include 200 beds, while the second phase will bring the total up to approximately 500.

The hospital will provide high-quality medical services in line with international standards, competitive prices, and advanced technology.

The hospital looks to bring together a team of top clinical experts and research talents from home and abroad to promote the development of medical practice, education and research. 

It offers various specialty practices including oncology, orthopedics, emergency medicine, intensive care, rehabilitation, medical imaging, and medical laboratory science, and encourages new models of integrated and team-based care with a focus on clinical research and translational innovation. 

Next year, it will introduce high-end medical facilities such as a PET-MRI, which Shanghai currently only has four of, and linear accelerators, which are known to be effective in eliminating tumors. 

Germany's Artemed Group is a world-renowned healthcare group providing advanced medical services and elderly care services. Its hospitals have topped German hospital rankings for many years due to their excellent clinical results and high satisfaction rates.
