In its report “Yongshu Reef hospital thoroughly overcomes medical service shortage in Nansha (Spratly) Islands”, mil.huanqiu.com provides the above photos of the brand new large hospital that has just completed construction and begun operation on Yongshu (Fiery Cross) Reef artificial island.

It is a grade 2 first class modern comprehensive hospital with floor area of 16,000 square meters and more than 400 pieces of medical equipment. Its emergency room has more than a dozen specialized treatment rooms to provide all kinds of services including intensive care unit and all kinds of medical examination units.

As there is an airport on Yongshu Island, the hospital can provide medical services in the South China Sea where islands are far away from Chinese coast.

    The hospitals can be used as an ‘island holiday tourism hospital resort’ especially for the Mainlanders including Hong kong and Taiwan. China can encourage Wealthy patients suffering from clinical depression, mental stress or chronic sicknesses, etc, and in need of ultimate fresh air, looking into the blue waters of SCS, avoiding the human rat race and pollution to apply for temporary residence in these state of the art hospitals.

    As it is with No residents, the doctors and nurses could be playing hide n seek during the night.
