PITTSBURGH, May 31, 2016 – UPMC and First Chengmei Medical Industry Group (FCMG) of Haikou, China, have signed an agreement to collaborate on the development of health care services for the people of Hainan Island, the southernmost province in China. The agreement is UPMC’s third health services partnership in China.
 
Beginning this summer, UPMC will provide clinical training opportunities for FCMG physicians and nurses, both in Haikou and in Pittsburgh, with an initial focus on medical, radiation and surgical oncology.  In addition, a team of UPMC experts will visit Haikou to observe clinical practices and offer recommendations on hospital operations, including information technology, supply chain, patient satisfaction and quality.
 
FCMG, a subsidiary of First Investment Holding Group, solely owns three hospitals in the greater Haikou region, including the Hainan Cancer Hospital, an Orthopaedics Hospital and the newly built Chengmei International Medical Center.  First Investment Holding is one of the oldest and most renowned local enterprises, founded when the Province of Hainan was established in 1988.
 
“First Chengmei Medical Industry Group conducted an exhaustive search for the best possible partner in creating our international collaboration, and we selected UPMC based upon its extensive international experience and its recognized reputation for clinical excellence,” said Lin Shi Quan, executive director-general of Hainan Cancer Hospital and chief executive officer of FCMG.  “Most importantly, UPMC has proven its commitment to the development of health care programs of excellence in China. We expect this initial one-year agreement to grow into a long-term relationship covering a multitude of clinical services.”
 
Charles Bogosta, president of UPMC International, said, “UPMC is pleased to initiate this important new relationship, our third major agreement in China. Like UPMC, FCMG is committed to achieving international standards of clinical excellence so that patients can get the best possible care close to home.”
 
In addition to its work with KingMed Laboratories in Guangzhou for the provision of second-opinion telepathology services, UPMC helped to develop and supports the operation of the Xiangya International Medical Center in Changsha.
