The international healthcare company Swedish HealthCare has signed an agreement with the Beijing Government on a cooperation project with the Chinese hospital INTECH Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. The mission is to develop a high quality rehabilitation center and nursing home in Beijing.
- The cooperation agreement consolidates Swedish HealthCare’s position in Asia as a leading and reputable company with broad expertise in Swedish elderly care and rehabilitation. Together with our partner INTECH, we will use the methods and values from the Swedish care model and adapt them to the local market, says Nils Persson, CEO of Swedish HealthCare.
Clinic, showroom and training
The goal of the joint project is to develop a first class clinic for rehabilitation and care of the elderly in Beijing. In the first part of the project, the focus is on the technical and functional design of the clinic and development of the management and operations. In connection to the clinic, a special showroom will be designed where companies can demonstrate assistive technology products and solutions adapted for the elderly and disabled. The project will also create a joint platform for training Chinese care staff in elderly care and rehabilitation.
Network of specialists
Swedish HealthCare has extensive experience in exporting Swedish medical know-how to Japan, Korea and now China.
- Our main strength is our partners. Over the years we have established a wide network of senior specialists with broad knowledge and experience in the field of rehabilitation and elderly care in Sweden. There is a lot of interest in the Swedish care model in China. The supply of professional rehabilitation and elderly care services is still quite limited in China, so there is an urgent need, says Nils Persson.
- Sweden should be proud of its extensive research in the field of rehabilitation and geriatric care. Sweden has always been at the forefront in this field, says Jenny Hjalmarson, researcher at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden and Project Manager at Swedish HealthCare. Jenny has broad experience in rehabilitation and has managed a number of Swedish nursing home projects, including Löjtnantsgården in Stockholm, Sweden.
SHC has engaged a number of renowned scientists and experienced specialists from the Swedish healthcare sector to contribute to the project. Swedish HealthCare will also offer their Chinese partners the opportunity to travel to Sweden to study the Swedish model in action.
Safety and quality
- We are very proud to participate in the development of a world-class rehabilitation clinic in Beijing. Our skills and experience are in demand in China and we are just at the beginning of a strong development, says Nils Persson at Swedish HealthCare.
