China Railway Shisiju Group Corporation, which is also known as China Railway 14th Bureau Group Co., Ltd., and China National Complete Plant Import Export Corporation (COMPLANT) were the contractors responsible for project implementation. This project was launched on August 2, 2003. However, the hospital building collapsed in July 2004 during the construction process, killing 6 construction workers and injuring at least 30 others.
