Chindex leads the foreign-invested
healthcare services industry in China. In 1997, Chindex
established the model for private healthcare services with the
opening of its Beijing United
Family Hospital. This flagship Chindex hospital continues
to provide the standard of excellence in family and acute care
medical services in Beijing.
In October 2004, Chindex
opened Shanghai United Family Hospital,
the second hospital in the Chindex Healthcare Network. With
this hospital Chindex continues the expansion of its international-standard,
patient-centered care in China and firmly establishes the United
Family Hospital brand as the primary provider of healthcare to the
international and private pay local community in China.
Both Beijing United Family
Hospital & Clinics and Shanghai United Family Hospital &
Clinics are complemented by affiliated free standing ambulatory
clinics in each city. These clinics are located in the heavily-expatriate-populated
Shunyi area of Beijing, in the St. Regis Hotel in the heart of Beijing's
diplomatic quarter, and in the Shanghai Racquet Club in Shanghai's
Minhang District. The clinics provide outpatient services in locations
convenient to the homes and offices of the hospitals' patients and
serve as referral bases for the hopitals. The unique Chindex Healthcare
Network is bringing comprehensive international standard, private
healthcare services to China for the first time. Future plans
include the establishment of additional United Family Hospitals
("UFH"s) with associated clinics. Chindex has signed
a Letter of Intent with Xiamen Zhongshan Hospital to establish a
third UFH in the wealthy coastal city of Xiamen and continues to
explore other opportunities to expand its hospital network.
The UFHs that make up the Chindex Healthcare Network will all share
a common senior management and resources.
United Family Hospitals
are always committed to giving back to the community. The
community activites hosted by the UFHs bring the hospital and its
clients together. The activities are aimed to serve the expatriate
as well as the local populations in meeting their medical needs
and providing useful healthcare information
Community Blood Drive
In cooperation with the
Beijing Red Cross, BJU holds monthly community blood drives.
Donors from all nationalities and professions, and their family
members, regularly support this much-needed program. All Blood
Donation processes meet American Blood Bank accreditation
Welcome to Beijing/Shanghai
A free community health
seminar designed to provide useful health tips for new arrivals
in Beijing or Shanghai is presented at regular intervals at both
UFH facilities. In addition to presentations by UFH physicians,
hospital tours, and pre-registration, these seminars also provide
a good opportunity for participants to meet fellow newcomers and
develop friendships. Seminar topics include:
How to Survive & Thrive in Beijing/Shanghai
First Aid Know-How
Recommended Vaccinations & Immunizations
Receiving Blood in China
Child Safety Precautions
What to Do in an Emergency Situation
Preparing your AiYi/Nanny
UFHs have a mission to
provide not only healthcare and well being for the individual, but
also for the community at large.
BJU holds a holiday toy drive for the children at the orphanages
that it sponsors.
In addition to high-quality,
international-standard healthcare services, the UHFs provide
healthcare information on a monthly basis to its clients and patients.
"Health Flash," written by UHF doctors and published on
the UHF website, offers advice and basic knowledge about specific
healthcare topics. "Health in the News" provides
an overview of recent news items. The "Health Matters"
newsletter also provides access to both the latest information and
recent developments in the UFH network.
Supporting its healthcare
services, the UFHs provide a wide range of healthcare classes, including:
CPR -- for infants, children, and adults
First Aid Training Class -- a must for parents, as basic life
saving skills are taught
Ayi First Aid Training Class -- provides useful, everday advice
on health and hygiene as well as on food preparation
Senior First Aid Class -- a comprehensive course suitable for
everyday emergency situations
Pregnancy and Childbirth Classes -- provide the opportunity
to explore different aspects of pregnancy and parenthood
The UFHs have a joint membership program,
the same benefits at the BJU and SHU hospital facilities, with easy
access to both hospitals.
