The Hengqin Integrated Outpatient Department of Zhuhai People's Hospital (Zhūhǎi Shì Rénmín Yīyuàn) has become China's first of its kind to merit a five-star rating for management, quality, service, and finance.
The rating was issued by the Hong Kong Institute of Asclepius Hospital Management, a third-party hospital evaluation institution, based on its Report on Chinese Hospital Competitiveness • Star Grade Certification.
Hengqin Integrated Outpatient Department
Currently, the outpatient department is the only public grassroots medical institution in Hengqin New Area. It will be upgraded to a branch of Zhuhai People's Hospital over two phases; changes to the roof design of the outpatient building had already been completed by Dragon Boat Festival holiday.
The Grade-II hospital, 2.5 km (1.6 miles) from Hengqin Checkpoint, will offer 100 ward beds catering to both Zhuhai and Macao patients later this year.

Units will address internal medicine, general surgery, emergency, radiology, clinical laboratory, ultrasonic imaging, healthcare management, gynecology, pediatrics, and more. Facilities for gastrointestinal endoscopy and chest pain are also planned.
Next, Zhuhai may explore possibilities to allow use of Macao's medical coupons and insurance in Hengqin, according to Qin Yi, director of the Outpatient Department.
