The establishment of the Peking Central Hospital in 1918 marked China’s foray into the modernisation of the health care and medical system in the country. Indeed, it was the fulfilment of the lifelong dream of its founding director Dr Wu Lien-teh,

who went on to help further established over 20 medical, quarantine and medical education institutions,

during his 30 year span in China.

 

Known as the founder of modern medicine and epidemic prevention in China, Dr Wu Lien-teh’s conviction and heroic feat in wiping out the plague epidemic in northeastern China had made his mission of modernisation of China’s health care system possible. In the withering years of the Qing Dynasty in 1910-1911, imperilled by potential encroachment from neighbouring countries, the plague epidemic emerging in Harbin in 1910-1911 threatened to run down the country and

change the political landscape of China.

 

The chronic inefficiency of the Manchu Empire, with its antiquated health system, was in no disposition to mitigate, let alone, halt the epidemic onslaught. It took the conviction of a little known Malayan-born doctor Wu Lien-teh, who was looking for a higher purpose in life, to overcome prevailing ignorance and prejudices, and with the unambiguous critical support from the Beijing government, to push through the much needed urgent cum radical medical and health care reforms to ultimately save the day.

 

1918年北京中心医院的成立,标志着中国迈入了国家医疗卫生和医疗体系的现代化。确实,这也是其创始董事伍连德博士毕生梦想的实现。

他在中国30年的时间里,进一步帮助建立了20多家医疗、检疫和医学教育机构。被誉为中国现代医学和防疫的奠基人,

伍连德博士在消灭中国东北瘟疫流行的信念和英雄壮举,使他实现中国医疗体系现代化的使命成为可能。

在清朝衰落的 1910-1911 年,受到邻国潜在侵占的威胁,1910-1911 年在哈尔滨出现的瘟疫流行威胁着整个国家并改变中国的政治格局。

满清帝国效率长期低下,卫生系统陈旧,无法缓解,更不用说阻止流行病的冲击。一位鲜为人知的马来亚出生的医生伍连德,他正在寻找更高的人生目标,克服了普遍的无知和偏见,并在北京政府明确的支持下,推动了许多需要紧急和激进的医疗和保健改革,以最终挽救局面。
