Built originally in 1970 the Second Hospital of Longyan has recently been renovated and enlarged by a newly constructed building. It has been upgraded to a Grade 3 general hospital including a medicine and healthcare research & development center, with a total capacity of 1500 beds. After completion it will become the largest and best equipped hospital in the Western part of Fujian province. As such it will not only offer medical care to the more than 2.5 million inhabitants of Longyan itself but surely will also attract patients from outside the city. A professional team of some 1580 employees including 260 specialists take care of the wellbeing of the hospital's patients.
In mid December 2015 a contract with hospitalia international came into force for the supply of medical equipment for the Second Hospital of Longyan. Among the items to be delivered in the first half of 2016 is high sophisticated equipment such as MRI, CT and a linear accelerator, equipment for digital radiography and digital subtraction angiography as well as a total of four ambulances.
The investment is financed by a promotional loan of the Federal Republic of Germany, administered through Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau.
