Kwang-Chi Hospital


Kwang-Chi Hospital

Kwang Chi Hospital (Chinese: 廣濟醫院) was a hospital established by the U.K. Church Missionary Society in Hangzhou (Hangchow), China in 1871. It is one of the earliest hospitals in China. The hospital is in existence today and is renamed to the 2nd Affiliated Hospital, Zhejiang University School of Medicine.

From 1885 until 1927, the hospital had run a fine medical school, the C.M.S. Kwang Chi Medical School under Dr. David Duncan Main.
