Wednesday-May 27: Nanjing hospital visits

Wednesday was spent primarily visiting several hospitals in Nanjing. Our first stop was the JIANGSU PROVINCE HOSPITAL. The sprawling complex of buildings connected by bridges and walkways is centered around an 18-story tower. The hopsital has a total of 2,200 beds and was founded in 1936. An astounding 2.8 million patients present at the Emergency Department annually! This health care facility is heavily committed to the 3 tenets of patient care, education, and research. In 2008 alone, the institutions alone produced 1,160 published articles. Some of the strengths of this facilty include cardiology, liver transplantation, and in vitro fertilization programs.

We also toured a newly opened Geriatrics buildings that provides an array of services to the elderly, defined in China as 80 years and older.

After lunch served in the Nanjing Medical University campus restaurant, we traveled to several other sites, including the maternity and pediatric hospitals, as well as the fertility clinical and research facilities. Each area was very busy and active places.

Tomorrow, we pack our bags and leave for Beijing, our final destination in China!
