Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital (SRRSH; simplified Chinese: 邵逸夫医院; traditional Chinese: 邵逸夫醫院; pinyin: Shào Yìfū Yīyuàn), or Shao Yifu Hospital, is a hospital affiliated with the Medical School of Zhejiang University, in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China.

Overview[edit]

The 1200-bed hospital was built with a donation of about 100 million yuan from the Hong Kong media mogul and philanthropist Sir Run Run Shaw, a Zhejiang native. Construction began in October 1989 and the hospital was opened on May 2, 1994.[1]

December 23, 2006, the hospital became the first in mainland China accredited by the JCI, the Joint Commission International; a US-based organization for medical quality evaluation.

The hospital is also a teaching and researching base for medical students and scholars. It cooperates with and receives funding from the American Loma Linda University (LLU). It has student exchange programs with the United States, Germany, Japan, India, and Hong Kong.
