The First People's Hospital of Foshan


Built in 1881, the First People's Hospital of Foshan has the history of over one hundred years and experienced changes in its name and site during this time.

The First People's Hospital of Foshan will maintain its belief of curing and caring patients persistently despite the obstacles in the future.

The First People's Hospital of Foshan, having a history of 138 years, was founded by a English missionary doctor named Ren Yun. In the first place this hospital was composed of a medical school and a nurse training class.It sent a quarter of its doctors to have further study in the Western countries, which makes it one of the first incubators to foster doctors with western medical skills. It set precedent for allowing female nurses to take care of male patients and introducing the western hospital managing system into China.
