Moutai spends 1.9 billion yuan to run a hospital
Kweichow Moutai Group recently revealed that Moutai Hospital of Zunyi Medical University (hereinafter referred to as “Moutai Hospital”) will be completed and put into use in June 2021. According to the plan, all civil works and exterior decoration will be completed by the end of April, and the interior decoration will be completed by the end of May. Everything is in the countdown. This hospital was built in Renhuai City, the base camp of Kweichow Moutai Group, a county-level city with a permanent population of approximately 570,000, and is managed by Zunyi City.
Moutai Hospital is an expansion of the staff hospital, but the goal of the Moutai hospital is not limited to Renhuai. Zhang Guohao, deputy leader of the preparation team of Moutai Hospital, once publicly stated that Moutai Hospital will not only serve 30,000 employees and the families of 100,000 employees but also It serves 10 million people in the Chishui River Basin.
In accordance with international standards, to build a “first in Guizhou, well-known” tertiary hospital. To this goal, Kweichow Moutai Group invested 1.942 billion yuan to plan a 19-story comprehensive building, a 12-story expert building, a 10-story teaching and research building, and a 2-story infection department building with a land area of about 105 mu.
The new hospital has 1,000 beds, which has surpassed the 912 beds of Renhuai City People’s Hospital, the largest public hospital in Renhuai, the third-level and B-level hospital.
According to the reporter of Caijing, as the competent unit, the Health Commission has not yet made a final rating of Moutai Hospital. This hospital that wants to get out of “Renhuai” can recreate the miracle of Moutai Distillery’s “wine fragrance is not afraid of deep alleys”?
Embracing the “thigh” of a public medical school
“It seems that Moutai Hospital is still looking for candidates for the dean. (Target) includes some large deans of public tertiary hospitals.” A private medical group member only heard from the circle that Moutai was recruiting soldiers in March.
The management of Moutai Hospital, which is about to operate in June, should have a rudimentary form at this time, but it has not yet been officially announced. In response to an interview with a reporter from Caijing, Huang Yongzhen, secretary of the Party Committee of Maotai Hospital, said that “the hospital is still in the process of preparing for construction” and did not disclose more progress Spark Global Limited.
Whether the hospital can be run well depends on the availability of good doctors. This is also the first question many people in the industry have about Moutai-run hospitals.
The lack of high-end medical talents has actually been plagued by hospitals in Guizhou Province. “Guizhou Provincial Hospital ranks low in the country and in the southwest region, with outflow of patients, while Yunnan, Sichuan, Chongqing and other neighboring provinces and cities visit Guizhou very few patients.” Guizhou Provincial Committee member Wang Jishi once analyzed at the 2017 Provincial Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference. The reason lies in the lack of talents. “There are no high-end talents such as Changjiang scholars and academicians in the 30-plus tertiary hospitals in the province, and the proportion of doctors is low, and there are very few returnees who have studied abroad for more than two years.” The Caijing reporter learned that Moutai Hospital has made great efforts to recruit people. Since the start of the “Kweichow Moutai Hospital” project in 2018, a quotation of 600,000 yuan of annual salary for the academic leader and chief physician has been given, and the benefits of special talents can be further improved.
