ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the construction of a neurosurgery hospital in Shanghai, China, led by Chen Gongbai as co-founder of Shanghai Blue Cross Hospital Management & Investment. He started dreaming of building a neurosurgery hospital when he returned to Shanghai in 1960. Chen argues that his neurosurgery hospital in Shanghai will help fix health care problems by subsidizing poor patients and setting a higher standard for hospitals, which should help persuade more students to become doctors.
