It offers 27 single-patient rooms, five intensive care units (ICU) and a wake-up room for its endoscopy center, with 24-hour medical and inpatient services.
“The new hospital is a conclusion to the past six-year experience and a full upgrade [during which] we opened eight clinics – five in Shanghai, two in Hangzhou and one in Suzhou,” explained Kathi Shi, founder and CEO of SinoUnited Health.
“The hospital is a reflection of all these experiences. We also conducted almost 100 discussions with the expert team from Mayo Clinic to learn from international counterparts with regard to China's own situation.
"We wanted to build the hospital into a place of hope and healing, giving all patients a warm and hearty feeling," Shi added.
Local health officials speaking to Shanghai Daily said that SinoUnited Health is an example of how the city's recent medical reforms, which encourage social involvement in the healthcare industry, have improved standards.
“Social investment is an important supplement to Shanghai's healthcare system to meet the different demands of patients,” said Wu Jinglei, Director of the Shanghai Medical Association.
