Cleveland Clinic makes foray into China

Cleveland Clinic has formed a strategic collaboration with a hospital in China through its new international affiliation program, Cleveland Clinic Connected.

Cleveland Clinic is teaming up with Shanghai New Hong Qiao International Medical Center, which is operated by Singapore-based Luye Medical Group, to improve health outcomes for patients in Shanghai. Through the affiliation, Cleveland Clinic will share best practices and the Shanghai hospital will have access to Cleveland Clinic's treatment protocols and educational materials.

In addition, Shanghai New Hong Qiao International Medical Center patients will be able to connect with specialists from Cleveland Clinic for second opinions via telehealth.

"We are honored to work with the Luye Medical Group to bring the first Cleveland Clinic Connected hospital to the city of Shanghai," Tom Mihaljevic, MD, CEO and president of Cleveland Clinic, said in a press release. "Disease and illness know no boundaries or borders, through innovative approaches and teamwork we can work together to impact lives in the healthiest way possible."
