OUE Lippo Healthcare inks deal to develop high-end international hospital in Shenzhen

The hospital will have more than 200 beds serving the local community.

Investment holdings firm OUE Lippo Healthcare (OUELH) signed deals with China Merchants Shekou Industrial Zone Holdings Co. (CMSK) to jointly develop and operate a high-end international hospital in Prince Bay, Shenzhen, an announcement revealed.
