Hospital Overview



Children’s Hospital of Zhejiang University School of Medicine is the earliest and the largest tertiary hospital and is the most comprehensive center of pediatric healthcare in Zhejiang Province. The hospital is one of the first batches of children’s hospitals in China with a National Clinical Research Center for Child Health and a National Children’s Regional Medical Center. Its comprehensive strength ranks firmly in the first phalanx among children’s hospitals in the whole country. The hospital shoulders responsibilities for pediatric care, medical education, scientific research, child healthcare, and public health emergency in Zhejiang Province.

The hospital is one of the first batches of national key discipline units of pediatrics and includes four national key clinical specialties and 11 provincial key specialties (groups). A life-cycle child health service system was built that focuses on the major needs of child health and diseases and constantly promotes innovation and breakthrough of major technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric diseases.

The hospital currently operates the Binjiang and Hubin campuses near the Qiantang River and the West Lake, respectively in Hangzhou, with a total of 1,900 beds. Construction of the Moganshan Campus with 1,000 beds and the Yiwu Campus with 600 beds was started in 2021 and is expected to be completed in the end of 2023. Therefore, the development pattern of one hospital with four campuses has been established. The hospital strives to build a top pediatric discipline, to develop a national benchmark in serving the health of children, to further promote the level of pediatrics, medical technology, clinical competency and radiation capacity, and to fulfill the mission of the hospital for children’s health.

The hospital was founded in 1951, which can be traced back to the year of 1912 under the name of Affiliated Hospital of Zhejiang Medical and Pharmaceutical School. After more than 70 years of construction, the hospital has evolved from a small, 100-bed healthcare facility to the largest center for pediatric care in Zhejiang Province and is the top children’s hospital with four campuses and two national centers in China. Its pediatrics capacity has grown from relative obscurity to national prominence. History and heritage make us more grounded. Dreams and future plans provide us with a new vision of establishing an internationally recognized children’s hospital known for first-class discipline, first-class team, first-class quality, and first-class service.

Our pioneering efforts in health care have touched lives nationwide and have positioned us as a leader in pediatric medicine. A shared commitment to our mission enables us to magnify our impact on the health of children. Currently this top national children's hospital has earned a high reputation in pediatric medicine and annually welcomes about 3.38 million outpatient visits and 81,000 inpatient visits. We are proud of the achievements resulting from the hard work and sacrifices made by several generations of health care providers at the Children’s Hospital. All employees of the hospital are devoted to providing patient- and family-centered care to sick children and families and to embracing the motto of truth-seeking, benevolence, diligence and excellence.
