Driven by the reform of public hospitals and other policies, China has set off a wave of social capital inrush to the medical industry and witnessed an upsurge in the number of private hospitals. By the end of October 2016, there had been 15,798 private hospitals in China, accounting for 55.3% of the total hospitals. However, the revenue of private hospitals is less than 10% of the total hospital revenue. In the forthcoming years, Chinese private hospitals will grow by leaps and bounds, with the number registering 20,262 and the revenue reporting RMB639.6 billion by 2020.
Specialized hospitals need low investment costs but trigger high return on investment; coupled with the robust demand, they have attracted the fanatical investment of social capital.
