As a landmark project of Shanghai’s social development during the period of the “Ninth Five-year Plan”, and Shanghai’s key construction project, listed as one of the 10 great deeds implemented by Shanghai Municipality, and, also US Project Hope’s largest overseas collaborative program, SCMC has become the highlight of the century with huge investment. Former Chinese President Jiang Zemin calligraphed the name for Shanghai Children’s Medical Center; Hillary Clinton, former US First Lady, cut the ribbon for the opening of the center on June 30, 1998.
SCMC was at the top of the list of “Shanghai’s Best Architectural Constructions of New China for 50 Years” and “the Fine Construction Projects of Ten-Year Development of Pudong New Area”.

The activities have not only established closer relationship between the hospital and the public but also introduced them to new health concepts.
We have friends all over the world. High ranking officials from the governments of different countries and world-renowned dignitaries and celebrities have frequently come to visit the hospital. Their visits have been of great benefit to the hospital in the improvement of its medical care, research and administration. SCMC has established friendly relationship and collaboration with over 10 medical institutions of overseas countries and regions, and collaborative programs with over 20 world-famous children’s hospitals of overseas countries and regions based on the mutual development and benefit.
SCMC, the location of which used to be a paddy field, has now become a world-famous general pediatric facility. The road that the hospital has traversed also points to its future course of continuous reform and exploration. With the care and support of people of all walks of life, SCMC, going ahead at a fast pace, is growing up vigorously like a child and will repay the society’s cultivation and love with still more and better achievements.
