On October 28th, at the time of the 150th anniversary of our hospital establishment, nearly a hundred management experts and medical professionals from overseas, along with leaders of National Hygiene, Population and Family Planning Commission and other departments, over hundreds of directors of domestic well-known hospitals and nearly one thousand practitioners in medical treatment and health gathered together, witnessed the changes of Wuhan Union Hospital over the 150 years and especially its growth and development today.
This event is a milestone of our hospital, not only because it is our 150th anniversary, but also because it is an opportunity and a good start for deeper connection and further collaboration with well-known universities and hospitals in the world.
