Shanghai Artemed Hospital, the first foreign-owned general hospital in the Shanghai Free Trade Zone (FTZ), launched international diagnosis and treatment services on June 5, offering high-quality medical services for patients, according to a news report on June 9.
The hospital announced its official opening last September, demonstrating the comprehensive opening up of the FTZ, from the manufacturing industry to the service industry.
The first section of the hospital, with a planned floor area of around 60,000 square meters, offers 200 beds and specializes in orthopedics and tumors. It employs a number of clinical experts and scientists from home and abroad, and engages in medical development, teaching, and research.
The hospital will offer an array of services, such as appointments with experienced specialists, full-course translations, and professional health consultations. It also boasts high-tech facilities, and a linear accelerator for tumor radiotherapy will be introduced next year.
Unlike other Chinese-foreign private hospitals, Shanghai Artemed's registration fees, inspection fees, and other costs are similar to 2A-grade general hospitals. It is also pushing to be included in the official list of designated hospitals for medical insurance and aims to offer more efficient services in the future.
