Hospital begins building work

THE first rooftop helicopter pad at one of Xuhui District's medical facilities will be built on one of Zhongshan Hospital's new buildings, which started construction yesterday.

The new 15-story building, which will have outpatient and emergency clinics, operating theaters, intensive care units, and wards for patients with liver tumors and cardiovascular diseases, will be completed in three years at Zhongshan Hospital.

When the new building is complete, the two departments will have 720 beds, twice the current number, hospital officials said.

The entire building project has a total investment of 957 million yuan (US$140 million) and consists of a facility devoted to treating liver tumors and cardiovascular diseases, a science and technology research center and a pediatric emergency and outpatient building.

The pediatric building will be run by Fudan University's Children's Hospital, part of which has been moved from its previous location on Fenglin Road to make room for Zhongshan's development.
