Jiahui International Hospital
Project: In collaboration with Partners HealthCare member academic medical centers, Partners HealthCare International (PHI) and Jiahui International Hospital (JIH) partner to create a new and innovative model of health care in China that is centered on community, family, and a stronger connection between the patient and the caregiver.
Location: Shanghai, China
Years of relationship: 2011 - present
In 2010 China began the transition from a predominantly government-run public health care system to one that is now decentralized and open to private and foreign investment, thus setting the stage for a private, international hospital like JIH. Centrally located in the Xuhui District of Shanghai, Jiahui International Hospital is a 100 percent privately, foreign-majority owned tertiary level hospital based on international standards.
In its work with JIH, PHI leverages the vast knowledge available throughout the Partners HealthCare network which includes unmatched capabilities in oncology, neurosurgery, cardiovascular disease, cutting-edge radiation therapy, women’s health, and orthopedics. Initial work with the team focused on hospital planning, innovative models of care delivery, and recruitment and staffing models that will support attracting top clinicians.
On October 29th, 2015, JIH finalized an agreement with Massachusetts General Hospital, under which the Mass General Cancer Center will collaborate with JIH to co-develop a center of excellence in breast cancer.
