BETHESDA, Md., July 17, 2013

BETHESDA, Md., July 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Chindex International, Inc.
(NASDAQ: CHDX, "the Company"), an American healthcare company providing
services in China through the operations of United Family Healthcare, a
network of private hospitals and affiliated ambulatory clinics, today
announced the official opening of United Family Quankou Clinic in Shanghai,
one of the latest development projects of the United Family Healthcare ("UFH")
network. On July 17, 2013, the Company held a grand opening and ribbon-cutting
ceremony, which was attended by distinguished guests including Mr. Robert
Griffiths, United States Consul General in Shanghai, representatives from the
city's Changning district government, medical associations, as well as other
business associates.

The state-of-the art, expanded facility, previously the Shanghai United Family
Dental Clinic, is the new home for several services formerly located within
the nearby main Shanghai United Family Hospital. Health care offerings at the
new United Family Quankou Clinic include an Eye Clinic, Physical Medicine &
Rehabilitation Clinic, Dermatology & Skin Center, Mental Health Clinic and ENT
(Ear, Nose, Throat) Clinic, as well as an upgraded Dental Clinic. The very
latest medical technology and increased capacity will further allow these
specialty clinics to rollout even more expanded services in the near future.
The bright and modern UFH clinic facilities aim to provide a comfortable and
nurturing environment for patients. The clinic will offer patients referrals
to other care providers within the UFH network and the wider medical
community, with convenient direct billing options to well-established
international insurance companies.

United Family Quankou Clinic will follow and attempt to surpass the highest
international quality standards recognized by the world's most well-regarded
accrediting agency, Joint Commission International (JCI). UFH is currently
China's only multi-city JCI quality accredited healthcare network, confirming
its position within the highest echelon of global healthcare providers.

United Family Healthcare Vice President and Shanghai regional General Manager,
Emery Brautigan, said, "We are pleased to expand our world-class services to
meet growing demand from our patients in the Shanghai region. We could not
have reached this notable achievement without the strong support of the
Shanghai Changning district government, the Consulate General of the United
States in Shanghai, our various partners, and our own operational teams. We
look forward to deepening our working relationships and together meeting our
healthcare mission to deliver international-standard healthcare services to
those in need in China."
