The first such practice in Zhuhai is intended to better satisfy the diverse demands for TCM health service. Employment of a second group of experts is on the agenda, according to Liu Zhilong, head of the hospital. More skilled clinicians and teams are expected to pass down their professional knowledge and provide treatment at the facility while cultivation of innovative local talents continues.

It is a third-grade comprehensive hospital founded in 1984. It is also the largest hospital of its kind in Zhuhai, Zhongshan, and Jiangmen, integrating medical treatment, prevention, health care, rehabilitation, R&D, and education.
