Updated: 2018-10-19


The Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (CQHCWC) in Southwest China's Chongqing planned to spend two years to build a world-class perinatal medical center and neonatal research platform, according to CQHCWC officials who announced the project at the First Yangtze-Rhine Neonatal-Perinatal Forum held at the CQHCWC on Oct 18, 2018.

Perinatal medicine is the science that monitors, prevents and treats pregnant women and fetuses following the diagnosis of pregnancy. The new complex will be a German class I standard perinatal medical center, which is the highest-level perinatal center in Germany and its successful treatment rate for ultra-low weight infants under 1,000 grams has reached almost 100 percent.

According to CQHCWC officials, the hospital will work with Professor Gerhard Jorch of the University of Magdeburg in Germany to take the lead in building high-level perinatal medical centers nationwide.

CQHCWC officials added that the hospital will try its best to build the maternity room, obstetric operating room and neonatal ICU on the same level and close to each other.

The intra-hospital transport platform will be equipped with life support equipment.

Once a premature infant is delivered, the baby's body temperature and humidity will be kept in the most comfortable state for 24 hours. In addition, the center will purchase special nuclear magnetic resonance and blood collection equipment for premature infants.
