The Wuhu Hospital Affiliated to ECNU, jointly built by ECNU and the government of Wuhu City in Anhui Province, was inaugurated at Wuhu No. 2 People's Hospital on November 14.
At a grand inauguration ceremony on the same day, the Wuhu Hearing and Speech Medical Center of ECNU was also officially unveiled.
The new hospital aims for a high-quality international hospital that highlights clinical treatment, medical research and medical teaching.
The center is expected to be incorporated into a comprehensive medical and health service platform featuring quality resources, open operation and industry-academia-research integration. It is to boost the interconnection and opening of medical resources and effectively serve people's needs.
ECNU University Council chairwoman Mei Bing made a speech at the ceremony, saying that the new facilities are the fruit of university-government cooperation, which demonstrates the common aspiration of both sides for being pragmatic and creative in cooperation.
She praised Wuhu as a pacesetter in the rise of Anhui along the Yangtze River and the No. 2 People's Hospital as a leader among regional hospitals in the province. Drawing on each other's strengths, both sides will make concerted efforts to promote medical treatment and teaching and achieve win-win and mutual benefits, thus making greater contributions to building a community of common goals.
She hoped that both parties will expand cooperation in more areas and establish a group of competitive projects that can boost the high-quality integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region.
Cui Lijun, deputy director of Anhui Provincial Health Commission, hailed the new establishments as a key move to propel the Healthy China strategy and the high-quality integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta region and rev up the construction of regional medical centers. He expected that both sides will work hard to make the newly established facilities a pinnacle in health care and a benchmark for innovative development.
