A total of five hospitals in Shenzhen have been included into a program that aims to build top-level hospitals in Guangdong Province.

The five hospitals are Shenzhen People’s Hospital, the University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen Hospital, Shenzhen No. 2 People’s Hospital, Shenzhen No. 3 People’s Hospital and Peking University Shenzhen Hospital.

According to the provincial government, hospitals under the program will make efforts in five aspects, specifically: developing cutting-edge medical technologies, creating high-level scientific research platforms, gathering top medical workers, building first-class medical subjects and establishing modern hospital management system.

In the future, each selected hospital will receive a 300-million-yuan (US$44 million) fund.

In order to promote the construction of high-level hospitals, Shenzhen released a five-year plan (from 2020 to 2025) in January this year.

Forty years ago, Shenzhen had only one hospital in Bao’an County.

In 2018, Guangdong Province started the construction of high-level hospitals. A total of 30 hospitals in three batches have been selected into the program.

The number of high-level hospitals in Shenzhen accounted for 17 percent of the provincial total, second to Guangzhou.
