2018 marks the beginning year to carry out the lines of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. And on December 21this year, we will have exactly 1000 days to go till September 16, 2021, the 100th founding anniversary of PUMCH. Then we will have a count-down ceremony to usher in the anniversary, and also to welcome the 100th founding anniversary of the Communist Party of China. To look back at our century-old experience and look into the next century is precisely the most important theme for us today.
The 19th National Congress report gave the scientific conclusion that, now, the principal contradiction facing Chinese society is the contradiction between unbalanced and inadequate development and the people’s ever-growing needs for a better life. For a large-sized public hospital, our duty and mission is to take lead in further implementing the medical reform, carry out layered medical treatment, improve our ability to treat serious and difficult cases and drive up grassroots medical institutions, so as to provide people with better medical care. In recent years, our hospital, giving play to its traditions and experiences, has established and maintained a multidisciplinary treatment system to deal with serious and difficult cases. These innovative services will be further practiced in 2018.
In the new year, we will focus our efforts on the construction of the translational medicine building. We will also build a big data scientific research platform, increase scientific output so that scientific research and technological innovations can continuously support our treatment of serious and difficult cases. We will also put in more on medical staff education. We will boldly reform our recruitment system to attract more talented people, reform our personnel system and incentive mechanisms, so that our people can do their best, progress together and keep our leading position in fierce competitions.
