Hanchuan (simplified Chinese: 汉川; traditional Chinese: 漢川; pinyin: Hànchuān) is a county-level city in east-central Hubei province, People's Republic of China. It is under the administration of Xiaogan City.

The city's urban area is located on the left bank of the Yangtze a few tens of kilometres upstream from Wuhan. However, the county-level city as an administrative unit also includes some land on the right bank of the river as well.

The city will be served by the Hanchuan Railway Station on the new Wuhan-Yichang Railway.
