To introduce high-quality medical resources into rural areas, 15 hospitals at provincial level and 24 municipal hospitals respectively signed contracts with 89 county hospitals to have close cooperation for 5 to 8 years.
Since the relationship between big hospitals and small hospitals established, more than 10 experts of municipal hospitals came into county hospitals to have a long-term management or to provide medical treatment; about 2,000 young doctors also entered into country hospitals or village-level hospitals after receiving standardized training from their resident doctors. Since those medical talents came to the grassroots, people could enjoy high-quality medical service just at home.
Ma Hangwei, the deputy director of the Planning Commission of Zhejiang Province, said, "Through the combinations of municipal hospitals and county hospitals, it allowed people to have good treatment at home and to enjoy high-quality medical service technology. As we adopted 'double sinks' strategy; the rate of seeing doctors at county hospitals has been improved. At the same time, the number of outpatients, in hospital and hospital surgical volume basically raised more than one percent. "
Now, in Zhejiang province, no matter where you live, you will not be bothered to find a doctor. Because from the county hospitals to the community health services centers and even to the village clinics, the three-tier medical network has already covered the whole province.
According to the statistics, there were 136,475 basic medical personnel with 28,673 medical and health organizations in total, among which there were 1,148 health centers, 481 community health services centers and 12,042 village clinics. The 20-minute medical service circle was basically formed.
That is to say, people could find a doctor in 20-minute walking.(Yu Shujun reported, Huang Zijun translated)
