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 more than ninety years, the spirit of “precision, perseverance, 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. In 2011, the hospital, summing up its 90-year managerial experience, proposed the notion for running the hospital: treat patients as family and boost their satisfaction; treat colleagues as family to boost their happiness. In 2014, a hospital-wide discussion resulted in the "connotations of century-old PUMCH": scholarship, quality, humanism.
Currently, there are two campuses in PUMCH, with a total construction area of 530,000 square meters. PUMCH has more than 4,000 employees, 4 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering, 54 clinical and medical departments, 20 national key disciplines, 29 National Key Clinical Specialties, 18 doctoral training programs, 28 master training programs, and 6 national medical further education centers, 18 second-degree resident physician training bases, 15 third-degree subject specialist training bases and serves as a national clinical research center for gynecology and obstetrics. PUMCH offers 2,000 beds. It reports a maximum of 17,300 outpatient visits a day, and discharges 95,000 patients on yearly average. PUMCH was awarded many honors, such as “National Civilized Units”, “National Pioneer Advanced Grass-root Party Organization”, “Advanced Institution in National Health System”, “Capital Health System Civilized Unit”, “Most Popular Class-A Tertiary Hospital” and “National Labor Medal”. Meanwhile, PUMCH also takes on the responsibilities of medical security for underdeveloped and remote areas, emergencies and major national events.
