UFH Chair Witnesses Progression of China's Healthcare-service Industry
"I am very happy that I became a permanent resident of China 38 years after my first visit to this country." Roberta Lipson, board chair and chief executive officer of United Family Healthcare (UFH), wrote the above message, in Chinese, on her Wechat Moments on July 10, 2017. That day, she received her permanent residence permit, also referred to as China's green card. Since Lipson's first visit to China, in 1979, the American woman has witnessed nearly 40 years of vast changes, many of which have taken place in China's healthcare-service industry. In recent years, she has been particularly impressed by the fact Chinese have been paying greater attention — compared with a few decades earlier — to health issues. She was especially glad to see the Chinese Government created an enabling environment for the public to live healthy lives, and that the government provided many supportive policies for hospitals and providers of medical services to develop their businesses.
