28 | CHINDEX IN­TER­NA­TIONAL

Modern Healthcare - - HEALTHCARE’S HOTTEST -

WHAT IT DOES:

Pro­vides health­care in China through two ma­jor hos­pi­tals and a se­ries of clin­ics, and also pro­duces and dis­trib­utes med­i­cal equip­ment and in­stru­ments throughout China. HOW IT GREW:

In a news re­lease an­nounc­ing 20% year-over-year growth for Chindex in 2011, pres­i­dent and CEO Roberta Lipson pointed to 2011 as “a year fo­cused on ex­pan­sion.” Chindex’s ex­pan­sion has come from strength­en­ing traf­fic in ex­ist­ing fa­cil­i­ties and build­ing new ones.

It was a lit­tle un­der 15 years ago that Chindex opened Bei­jing United Fam­ily Health Cen­ter, the first for­eign-man­aged health­care fa­cil­ity in China. Since then, the com­pany has grown steadily and ag­gres­sively pur­sued op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­pand, in­clud­ing build­ing the com­pany’s sec­ond hospi­tal in Shang­hai in 2004.

Ac­cord­ing to the com­pany’s web­site, Chindex’s rapid growth can be pegged to the in­creas­ing de­mand for in­ter­na­tional-stan­dard health­care in China.
