The high-quality development of health industries in Jiangyan district, an area administered by the prefecture-level city of Taizhou, which is located in the middle of East China's Jiangsu province, should be accelerated in Taizhou's modernization drive.
The goal was embedded in the Opinions on Supporting the High-Quality Development of Taizhou's Health Industry, a guideline issued by the Jiangsu provincial government.
The new policy has boosted the confidence of many, including Liu Yueping, director of the Jiangyan Zhongtian Nursing Home.

"It is a great opportunity for us. The number of our beds and the nursing team will be raised to over 500 and 400 respectively," said Liu.
In recent years, Jiangyan district has been vigorously developing public health, rehabilitation, elder care and other public service industries, and promoting the integration of medical and nursing services.
The number of at-home visits in the district is expected to exceed 200,000 by 2025.
Plans are afoot for Jiangyan district to rely on its Qinhu River scenic area to build itself into a well-known slow life hub integrating medical and health resources that reaches a health industry scale exceeding 30 billion yuan (4.32 billion) by the end of the 14th Five Year Plan period (2021-25).
