TCM hospital new-buildings expansion continues in Jida
Guangdong TCM Hospital Zhuhai in Jida will be further expanded this year to provide 1,200 patient beds and comprehensive medical treatment, education, and scientific research services by mid-2024.
The second phase of construction will lead to a comprehensive TCM medical center on the west bank of Pearl River Estuary and integrated traditional Chinese & Western Medicine Emergency Treatment Center. The agreement to upgrade TCM capacity (now full at 700 beds) in two phases was approved by the city government in October 2020. It calls for the old campus west of Jingle Road to be renovated and upgraded.
