In the past 20 years, China has begun to decentralize its exclusively government-run public healthcare system and opened for private and foreign ownership. Most recently, the Chinese government has substantially relaxed foreign ownership requirements and regulatory controls to boost the capacity and capability of healthcare services in the country. By the end of this decade, healthcare spending in China will surpass $ 1 trillion.
CWC provides successful strategies that include choosing the right partners, and sources opportunities for foreign investors and suppliers to become part of this $1 trillion market in the making.
The rising wealth and discernment of China’s middle and upper classes creates an exponential demand in private healthcare. These segments of the population will desire private clinics that focus on treatments of chronic conditions that require regular patient visits, such as dialysis and chemotherapy, or treatment of insulin-dependent diabetes, and centers that provide conception and pregnancy services, such as in-vitro fertilization.
The National Plan for Healthcare Services, released by the Chinese Government in 2014, encourages establishing privately owned hospitals, including foreign invested hospitals, to relieve the pressure of Chinese public. CWC can source, advice and implement investment, acquisition, construction, and management of private clinics and hospitals supplying this demand.
The biggest demand for investment opportunities in private healthcare facilities are currently in the following segments:
