The new RMH is committed to improving the living quality of sick children and their families by adopting innovative technologies. HGC understood the importance of getting connected to digital world in these days, especially for sick children who are temporary isolated from the outside world, wi-fi connection is even more crucial as bridging them to the digital world.
