The “Three-Year Action Plan for Integrated Development of the Yangtze River Delta (2018-2020)” was officially released at the end of 2017, which pushed the “fast forward” button for regional integrated development. To follow this trend and seek the complementarity and sharing of medical resources, Shanghai General Hospital, Jiangsu Province Hospital, Zhejiang Provincial People’s Hospital and the First Affiliated Hospital of USTC (Anhui Provincial Hospital) together initiated the Strategic Alliance of Hospitals in the Yangtze River Delta for Coordinated Development in 2016. The alliance now covers 112 hospitals in 26 cities. It is the only cross-regional cooperation organization of medical institutions in the Yangtze River Delta, which is devoted to the development of the Yangtze River Delta’s medical services towards branding, standardization, internationalization and sustainability.
