God rewards the diligent. With more medical tasks, the diligent and intelligent Tongji staff devoted their energy and time to create a fruitful 2014. It represents the confidence of Tongji staff, the group cohesiveness of Tongji culture and also contains our service ideology of patients-oriented and our core value of studying the physical world for thorough understanding and pulling together like people crossing the river in a small boat.

The year of 2015 is a key for us to build our 711-carrier project, which is 7000 hospital beds, 10,000 staff and 10 billion income. The headquarters of Tongji will continue as the main driving force while at the same time, our two new branches, the Guanggu branch and Caidian branch will embark on the journey successively. The three bases are standing on the three towns of Wuhan respectively, like a triangle, radiating the Tongji brand in the Central China. They are also like three giant shadowless surgical lamps, guarding the people loyally. The new Tongji development structure signifies higher standard, bigger responsibility and stronger consciousness to leading the current medical trend and providing best medical service for the people.

In 2015, we will keep on the internal development to improve the management reform, especially the operation mechanism of unification, coordination and good order of the three hospital bases. We will seek a new way to form a more effective management mechanism of medical, teaching, and S&R and improve the welfare of our staff. We will recommend more excellent people to supply the two branches with the talent teams. We will also adopt powerful methods to promote the discipline development to create the top discipline group in China.

An old Chinese saying goes like there must be a time for me to be thrown into the strong wind and rapids while at that moment, I will stick on fulfilling my dream by hanging up the sails into the cloud to finally see the ocean. The new age is coming with warm spring breeze and it is the very time for us to set sail from here. Let’s work harder to push the Tongji carrier forward and to make more contribution for the building of the international top-class hospital and for the health and peace of the mankind.
