Following the publication of a new circular by the National Health and Family Planning Commission and the Ministry of Commerce, foreign investors are now permitted to set up wholly foreign invested hospitals in 7 provinces and municipalities in China, including Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Jiangsu province, Fujian province, Guangdong province and Hainan province. Until now, wholly foreign invested hospitals could only be set up in China (Shanghai) Free Trade Zone (Shanghai FTZ), which was the pilot area for the scheme1.

The Circular enlarges the pilot area for wholly foreign invested hospitals to the 7 provinces and municipalities.
