PUMCH was founded by the Rockefeller Foundation in 1921. From the very beginning, it was intended to be built into the "best Medical Center in Asia". Over the past 99 years, the spirit of “preciseness, ever-improving, diligence, and devotion” has been passed on from generations to generations, during which a culture of compatibility also developed. The hospital has also formed the modern medical education concept of “Three Basics” and “Three Stricts”. We have been proud of our “Three Treasures”, namely, professors, case files and libraries. PUMCH has fostered many medical pioneers and masters in modern China such as Dr. ZHANG Xiaoqian and Dr. LIN Qiaozhi. In addition, generations of administrative personnel have been trained in PUMCH and spread all over China. More than ten renowned comprehensive or specialized hospitals were originated from PUMCH.
Basing on nearly 100 years’ experience, PUMCH innovatively proposed the notion for running the hospital-treat patients as family and boost their satisfaction, treat colleagues as family to boost their happiness, put forward the grand vision to build an academic, quality and humanistic PUMCH as connotation of “the century PUMCH”. Carrying out the spirit of the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee, PUMCH is pushing on the construction of “the Six System”: Medical Services System, Talents Training System, Science and Innovation System, Fine Management System, Open & Collaboration System, Party & Culture Building System.
Currently, there are four campuses in PUMCH, with a total construction area of 560,000 square meters. PUMCH has more than 4,000 employees, 3 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering, 57 clinical and medical departments, 20 national key disciplines, 29 National Key Clinical Specialties, 22 doctoral training programs, 29 master training programs, and 6 national medical further education centers, 19 national standardized residency training center, and 8 national standardized fellow training center. PUMCH offers 2,000 beds, operated 53,852 cases and discharged over 110,000 patients in 2019. PUMCH was awarded many honors, such as “National Civilized Units”, “Advanced Institution in National Health System”, “National Pioneer Advanced Grass-root Party Organization”, and “National Advanced Model Unit for Promoting Unity and Progress of Ethnic Groups”. Meanwhile, PUMCH also shoulders its social responsibility to offer medical services for underdeveloped and remote areas, emergencies and major national events.

On the journey to our century anniversary, sticking to the orientation-all for our people and all for the patient, we are making strenuous efforts in building a “top in the world, best in China” hospital.
