After the Third Plenary Session of the 11th Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party in 1978, she pioneered to conduct the foreign medicine exchange and opened a Convenient Door to keep abreast with international advanced medicine. Over the past forty years, Tongji has established a frequent medicine exchange with Germany, winning a highly recognized and approval by bilateral governments.

All these behaviors have made great contributions to China’s public hospital comprehensive reform and been appraised as Tongji-Xianning Mode by National Health Commission and Hubei provincial government.

As the leading organization of medical treatment system for public health emergencies in Hubei, she devoted herself to flood-fighting and emergency rescues, fighting against SARS, earthquake relief and rescue and fighting against bird flu and HFMD, making her own Tongji Contributions to win these battles.

In the past forty years, the service capacity has been greatly improved. Two new hospital campuses in Optical Valley and Sino-French New City have been launched, forming a comprehensive development pattern to provide better medical service to patients in and out of Hubei province.

Chairman Mao once said, matter can be transformed into spirit and vice versa.

The reform and development in the past forty years have laid a strong foundation for management, talents training, technology and infrastructure development.

Great visions can be realized only through actions. President Xi has pointed out that great dream waits for nobody but hard-working.
