LIH Olivia’s Place is the leading organization in China devoted to developmental behavioral pediatrics and pediatric rehabilitation. Our vision is to bring high quality, evidence-based, true multidisciplinary rehabilitation services to the children of China. Olivia’s Place was founded in 2010 by an American couple, after giving birth to their daughter Olivia, who has Down’s Syndrome. Guided by a Technical Advisory Board consisting of clinicians/faculty members from Virginia Commonwealth University, University of Southern California, University of Washington, and the University of Hawaii, we have grown significantly to over 50 internationally qualified clinicians with services offered in Shanghai, Beijing, Nanjing, Tianjin, and Guangzhou.
In addition to our private practice work we also have a foundation called Olivia’s Foundation that provides free and subsidized services for children with economic disadvantage. In partnership with leading medical universities, hospitals, orphanages, and non-profit organizations in China, we also are engaged in a wide range of academic and charitable programs and research to build expertise in China and serve as a resource for high-quality rehabilitation services throughout China.
We have now merged with LIH Investment & Management, whose similar vision is to bring high quality, universal adult and pediatric rehabilitation to China. LIH has attracted an outstanding professional team with strong backgrounds in international healthcare and expertise of investment and management in large enterprises. Together with a combined Technical Advisory Board including clinicians/faculty members from Mayo Clinic, Columbia University, TIRR/UT Health Medical School, Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and University of Sydney, the mission is to become the leading rehabilitation services provider in China in the next five to ten years.
LIH and LIH Olivia’s Place are equal opportunity employers.
