China Hospital Industry Report,2016-2020
In recent years, ""Opinions on Promoting the Development of Health Service Industry"" and other related policies, the people’s growing awareness of health care and the acceleration of population aging have prompted the rapid development of China's hospital industry. As of October 2016, there had been a total of 28,584 hospitals in China, an increase of 7,666 compared with that in 2010. It is estimated that Chinese hospitals gained the revenue of RMB2,708 billion in 2016, soaring 163.3% over 2010.
