Wang Yung-ching, Taiwan's richest man built a hospital dedicated to his father, who died of an undiagnosed stomach illness. Now Chang Gung has become one of the biggest private hospital groups on the island, serving 27,000 patients a day. Wang wanted to repeat in China what he had done in Taiwan – build large hospitals of international medical and research standards aimed at people on low and medium incomes , employing talent from both sides of the strait. But five months after his death at the age of 91 and nine years after he first announced his ambitious China plans, his projects have stalled. Plans to build Chang Gung hospitals in Zhengzhou and Ningbo have been put on hold.
