Only a few applicants are coming from Hong Kong and foreign countries, while the remaining re coming from the mainland. The hospital is particularly looking for doctors that specialize in family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology.
All doctors and nurses must have experience working at 3A hospitals except for doctors in family medicine. Applicants are also preferred to have English reading, speaking and writing skills.
The hospital will be located in the Nanshan district and will open in July. By then departments in the medical, surgical, gynecology, pediatrics, orthopedics, endoscopy, radiology and pathology plus several beds in the in hospital department will be operational. Patients can use their medical insurance to pay fees when seeing doctors from the mainland and Hong Kong but will not cover special services such as VIP treatments.
This is the first hospital from Hong Kong to operate on the mainland, and officials are hoping that the hospital will demonstrate on how to reduce costs for its patients by giving out cost effective medicine and tests that are only done when necessary.
