Services for residents continue to improve
Jiading is optimizing medical resources, installing new elevators in old residential buildings and enhancing the quality of tap water.
The launch of Shanghai General Hospital’s Jiading campus, also called Jiangqiao Hospital, is good news for residents in southern Jiading.
The hospital is a tertiary grade A hospital, and operation rooms are equipped with high-quality equipment including a 4k high-definition laparoscope which can recognize small lesions so patients can be treated as early as possible.
Cameras in the operation rooms enable doctors in Shanghai General Hospital’s main campus to instruct the Jiangqiao Hospital doctors remotely.
The district has accelerated the installation of elevators in old residential buildings.
One was recently installed in the eighth building of the Jia De Fang neighborhood.
“Before and during the construction, we discussed with each other, which resulted in our neighborhood relationships becoming more harmonious,” said a resident surnamed Huang who lives on the sixth floor. “I planned to move, but with the newly built elevator and better relationship with neighbors, I’m reluctant to leave now.”
Since 2017, four elevators in two real estates have gone into service in the district, while four more will be completed before the end of the year.
An advanced treatment project at the northern water plant of Shanghai Jiading Water will be completed before the end of the year.
Daily water treatment ability should reach 150,000 tons and 300,000 tons after the completion of the second phase.
The project includes an ozonation contact reactor and deep treatment reactor. The smell and taste of the water will be greatly improved after the ozone and activated-charcoal technologies are applied.
New technologies can improve the treatment ability of organic pollutants and some heavy metals.
“It can raise 20 to 30 percent of chemical oxygen demand removal rate, while the pollutant removal rate of ammonia and nitrogen can reach 90 percent,” said Li Xinmao, chief of the water company’s quality test center.
