First Western hospital celebrates its history
Renji Hospital, Shanghai’s first Western Hospital, released a cultural map with 23 sites highlighted to commemorate its 177-year history.
The sites include its historic buildings, parks, sculptures and special scenery, reflecting its long-term culture and humanistic spirit, according to hospital officials.
