I am a Physical Therapist interested in working during the summer in Kunming at this facility. Does anyone know who I would contact to see about a position. I a am currently in the US.
The Richland Hospital is a excellent CHINESE HOSPITAL, very modern, with private rooms, translators (which is a great difference) and relatively accessible prices. However IS NOT enough to be an INTERNATIONAL HOSPITAL, his doctors do not speak English, are very dependent on translators, and most have never studied outside China. Though polite and courteous the staff and technicians need better training to meet the foreign customer, including to stop commenting about the client in his presence (phrases like "h, he does not speak Chinese" are very common).
The loyalty Program is flawed, since it does not allow reimbursement for foreign. As a foreigner has no stability in China, this prevents many from making the minimum card (of 5000 kuais). Think about, if China does not renew your visa, you lose 5000 RMBs! Nobody will invest for prevention.
In resume, Richland think not so much about the foreign or international, the Hospital was actually made for the growing middle class of Kunming.
My one and only impression is that Richland is a cash deposit facility dressed up as medical establishment with actors dressed up as nurses. The 'doctors' turning up late, if at all, for rehearsal.
I know there are very different opinions about Richland out there.
I never had any bad or uncomfortable experiences there.
They are having English and now even German speaking nurses who can help out if your Chinese is not good enough.
Even with more serious problems I feel very safe and well treated.
