China’s biggest city eyes medical travel sector


Gu Jingwen also said in the article that Shanghai had had about 80 medical institutions offering high-end medical services, including 21 with foreign investment or cooperation, and two international medical zones.

The Huashan Worldwide Medical Center, for example, is the first training base of general practice for international and premium medicine in Shanghai and has accumulated rich experience in foreign-related medical services and the training of international general practitioners.

She said Shanghai should work out standards for qualification and service for medical tourist programs, better connect commercial and public insurances and promote the development of medical tourist agencies.
