The Chongqing Health Center for Women and Children (CQHCWC) in Southwest China's Chongqing ranked seventh in the specialty comprehensive ranking of Chinese hospitals in terms of reproductive medicine, according to a recent announcement by the Hospital Management Institute of Fudan University on Nov 20.
This is the fourth year in a row that the CQHCWC has received such a ranking.
The Reproductive Medicine Center of the CQHCWC is the first human-assisted reproductive center approved by the former Ministry of Health (now the National Health Commission), and is one of 12 human-assisted reproductive technology training bases in the country.
Huang Guoning, director of the Reproductive Medicine Center, now serves as chairman of the fifth committee of the Chinese Society of Reproductive Medicine.
In 1997, the first "test-tube baby" in West China was born at the CQHCWC, and since then the Reproductive Medicine Center has achieved rapid development.
Throughout its 25 years, the center has always focused on scientific and technological innovation, made serving patients a priority, and worked to raise the level of clinical and experimental technology.
It has received titles such as the Chongqing municipal reproductive health and infertility professional medical quality control center, Chongqing municipal reproductive medicine clinical medicine research center and Chongqing key laboratory of human embryo engineering.
To date, nearly 55,000 "test-tube babies" have been born with the help of the center, and its clinical pregnancy rate for "test-tube baby" assisted pregnancies is among the highest in the country, with the success rate exceeding 60 percent and the live birth rate exceeding 50 percent.
Moving forward, the CQHCWC will continue to advance the development of reproductive health and help make Chongqing a medical hub of West China.
