SHANGHAI, April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Deer Jet Medical Co. Ltd., China's largest air medical service business announced at "ABACE", Asia's Largest Premier Business Aviation and Exhibition, to establish China's largest air medical base in Shanghai serving domestic and foreign patients, in an effort to promote the growth of the local medical tourism to be among the nation's top international service portals.
Mr. Lu Haikuan, Chairman & CEO of Deer Jet Medical, spoke at the show and gave a live demonstration on air medical jet service. His interaction with the press and visitors brought people into the brand-new frontier of air medical service in China.
Shanghai as a well-known financial center of China, like its other medical center kins of Beijing and Guangzhou, has leading medical experts and hardware. In the government's 13th Five-Year Plan, Shanghai is committed to transforming itself into one of Asia's medical centers which is enormously attractive to those in need and the providers at home and abroad.
"We pick Shanghai as our largest air medical base not only for its significant position at the Yangtze delta, but also for the edge of medical service resources and huge potential for developing medical tourism," explained Mr. Lu on the operating base layout according to DJM's growth plan.
"Every year, on our service list are foreigners and proportionally large number of Chinese residents who are escorted home for care due to sickness and accidents abroad, and need safe air medical care and succeeding treatment. This can be regarded as a 'reverse' medical tourism."
DJM's Shanghai base harbors not only Hawker 800 jets and crews but also upgrade models like GS 450 and 550 in addition to large models for mass evacuation such as Boeing business jets.
As the first Chinese emergency medical and special care service provider to operate on established international air medical standards and protocols, Deer Jet Medical offers standardized, assuring and considerate care. The establishment of air medical base in Shanghai will contribute to DJM's service innovation based on its two decades' of international experience and the city's medical resources to drive medical tourism growth.
