On December 15, 2015, the Sixth National Membership Representative Conference of the Chinese Association of Rehabilitation Medicine and Rehabilitation Medical Innovation and Development Forum in 2015 were held at the Beijing International Conference Center. This event is one of the largest and most important nationwide gatherings of the Chinese Association of Rehabilitation Medicine.
Mr. Changsen Sun, Chairman of the Board for LIH Investment＆Management (LIH), was invited to present at the forum on ” Rehabilitation Hospital Development and Medical – Nursing Combined Institutional Care,” speaking on Opportunities of Medical Rehabilitation Investment and Challenges of Rehabilitation Hospital Development.”
Mr. Sun remarked that promoted by government policy, the rehabilitation medical market has embraced more opportunities. From the beginning of 2010, rehabilitation and related fields have received more policy support and the effect of this incentive has been remarkable. Many domestic and foreign enterprises and institutions are currently involved in multi-investor hospital development. Though there is huge potential demand for rehabilitation services, with an aging population an important driving factor, the market is still in the primary stage. Rehabilitation medical institutions face many challenges to growth in China, the biggest of which is to develop sustainable commercial models.
During his presentation, Mr. Sun explained that he believes that successful rehabilitation providers will have three core capabilities: rehabilitation medicine technology, solid management operating systems, and training and education systems. LIH integrates investment, management, and operations to establish quality rehabilitation hospitals and clinics. In the field of children’s rehabilitation, LIH Olivia’s Place opened its doors in Beijing in September 2015. in the next three years, another five LIH Olivia’s Place pediatric clinics will be established, including Shanghai, Shenzhen, and Chengdu. In January 2014, in the comprehensive medical rehabilitation field, LIH founded Kunming RUIQIDE Rehabilitation Center by LIH investment＆management. At the same time, TIANCHENG international rehabilitation hospital in Yunnan will open in June 2016. Over the next three years, LIH will cooperate with acute care hospitals to operate five comprehensive rehabilitation centers.
To further the three core capabilities, LIH has solidified strategic partnerships leading international medical institutions, Children’s Specialized Hospital (New Jersey, US) and Montefiore Medical Center (New York, US) on medical technology, operation and management, education and training. At the same time, LIH has focused on innovation and professionalism through our Technical Advisory Board and Consulting Advisory Board, networks of international experts, and pursued extensive technical cooperation with many domestic and international rehabilitation institutions.
