Singapore: Chindex International, an American healthcare company providing services in China through the operations of United Family Healthcare, a network of private hospitals and affiliated ambulatory clinics, announced the official opening of United Family Quankou Clinic in Shanghai. It is one of the latest development projects of the United Family Healthcare ("UFH") network.
The state-of-the art, expanded facility, previously the Shanghai United Family Dental Clinic, is the new home for several services formerly located within the nearby main Shanghai United Family Hospital. Healthcare offerings at the new United Family Quankou Clinic include an eye clinic, physical medicine and rehabilitation clinic, dermatology and skin center, mental health clinic and ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat) clinic, as well as an upgraded dental clinic. The very latest medical technology and increased capacity will further allow these specialty clinics to roll out even more expanded services in the near future. The UFH clinic facilities aim to provide a comfortable and nurturing environment for patients. The clinic will offer patients referrals to other care providers within the UFH network and the wider medical community, with convenient direct billing options to well-established international insurance companies.
United Family Quankou Clinic will follow the highest international quality standards recognized by the accrediting agency, Joint Commission International (JCI). UFH is currently China's only multi-city JCI quality accredited healthcare network, confirming its position within the highest echelon of global healthcare providers.
United Family Healthcare vice president and Shanghai regional general manager, Emery Brautigan, said, "We are pleased to expand our world-class services to meet growing demand from our patients in the Shanghai region. We could not have reached this notable achievement without the strong support of the Shanghai Changning district government, the Consulate General of the United States in Shanghai, our various partners, and our own operational teams. We look forward to deepening our working relationships and together meeting our healthcare mission to deliver international-standard healthcare services to those in need in China."
