US hospital chains are trying to carve out a slice of China’s growing medical pie, by joining hands with private hospitals on the mainland. Caixin reports that two American hospitals have become the latest addition to a growing list of about 100 foreign clinics that have partnered with local health service providers in recent years. Last week, the Massachusetts General Hospital said it has partnered with China’s Jiahui Health Network to open a cancer hospital in Shanghai in October. New Jersey-based Children’s Specialized Hospital said it had inked a partnership deal with health care investment firm LIH Investment & Management Co. last month to open a rehabilitation center in the southern city of Shenzhen for children with severe injuries or those suffering from mental illness or developmental disorders. Both US hospitals said they will be sharing their expertise in patient care and nursing, and offering guidance to their local partners on hospital administration.
