In recent years, Guangdong Provincial Government has allocated 1.5 billion yuan to 50 hospitals for the High-level Hospital Construction Project. The grant was directly distributed to the hospitals from the Department of Finance of Guangdong Province. The hospitals are authorized to plan and use the grant on their own. However, the grant should be primarily invested in clinical specialties, scientific research, talent cultivation, and employee benefits, not in infrastructure. But after receiving the grant, most of the hospital started constructing new building and purchasing equipment. Only a few of them invested in specialty construction and talent cultivation. How pathetic!. What matters most to a hospital is, its hospital management, specialty construction, and talent cultivation. This is the gold standard to evaluate a hospital. A hospital cannot meet the international standard without this. Buildings and equipment are only the basics for a hospital, while people are its most valuable asset. The Foresea Life Insurance Guangzhou General Hospital costs 6 billion yuan, but few patients visit it, because the doctors there are inadequate. The most serious issue in Chinese hospitals is the massive waste of funds and a lack of investment in the doctors who can actually help patients. No matter how much the government invests or how ambitious the national strategy is, it will all be in vain due to these short-sighted. How pathetic!
