Xiamen Zhongshan Hospital held a groundbreaking ceremony last week for its new eastern branch in Tong'an. Located at the intersection of Xifu Road and Xike Street, the branch will include facilities for medical treatment, disease prevention, teaching and scientific research.
The research-oriented hospital will be operated and managed by Xiamen Zhongshan Hospital. When the initial phase of the project opens in 2021, it will serve a population area of 1.5 million people. The branch will also serve as a facility for medical school teaching and will provide a platform for the development of healthcare physicians and experts.
