UPMC has completed the first phase in its plans to establish an international medical center in the Hunan Province of China.
Nearly a year after announcing its collaboration with Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, four floors on an existing 14-story tower have been renovated, including 36 beds and two floors of outpatient clinics. More than 20 UPMC staff members have also provided training in customer service, infection control and post-hospital care.
When completed, Xiangya International Medical Center will be expanded to 200 beds within the 3,500-bed hospital.
