The Second Affiliated Hospital
Originally known as Hangzhou Guangji Hospital (meaning “spreading benevolence around the world” or “universal benevolence”), the Second Affiliated Hospital Zhejiang University School of Medicine (SAHZU) was founded in 1869 by the British Church Missionary Society, and was considered the best hospital in the Far East. As the cradle of western medicine in Zhejiang, SAHZU educated a large number of medical talents, and several health care institutions can trace their roots to SAHZU. Those doctors and institutions have become the bedrock of clinical medicine in Zhejiang. And the hospital itself has been a beacon of the medical science: in 1989, it was recognized by the Ministry of Health as one of the first 3A hospitals in China; in 2013, it became one of the first Joint Commission International–accredited academic medical centers in the world.
The hospital has two campuses with a total of 3,200 beds and over 5000 employees, including 1,696 physicians and 2365 nurses in 50 clinical departments, many of which are national clinical departments or disciplines approved by the National Health Commission. SAHZU has become the role model for Chinese hospitals in the field of transcatheter valve intervention, the micro-incision cataract surgery, colorectal cancer, and severe burns. With nearly 6 million outpatients, 190,000 inpatients, and 150,000 surgeries every year, SAHZU is one of the most efficient general public hospitals in China.
SAHZU has ranked as one of top 20 Chinese hospitals for 3 consecutive years. According to the Fudan University Hospital Management Institute's Best Chinese Hospital Ranking 2018, SAHZU ranked top 10 in 6 specialties (Emergency #4, Health Management #4, Ophthalmolgoy #5, Cardiology #6, Neurosurgery #6, Ultrasound #10), with another 11 nationally nominated specialties (respiratory medicine, allergy, orthorpedics, neurology, nuclear medicine, burns, dermatology, radiology, rheumatology, anesthesiology, oncology).
