Posted on:       View:2352


In order to strengthen the treatment of patients with novel coronavirus pneumonia, the Chinese government will build Xiaotangshan Hospital in Wuhan with reference to the model of Beijing Xiaotangshan Hospital during the SARS prevention and treatment in 2003. With 25,000 square meters of the construction area and 1,000 beds capacity, this hospital will be completed before February 3rd to treat the patients in Wuhan.

What is the Xiaotangshan Hospital?

In April 2003, when the SARS epidemic was at its worst, the Chinese government launched the military forces to build a “Chinese People’s Liberation Army Xiaotangshan SARS Hospital” urgently on the basis of the original Beijing Xiaotangshan Regional Hospital, called Xiaotangshan SARS Hospital.

In order to complete the construction mission, the Third Bureau of China Railway received orders and build the Xiaotangshan SARS Hospital within 7 days, with 25,000 square meters construction area, 1,000 beds capacity and all the equipment equipped as standard for infectious disease hospitals, including consultation rooms, oxygen stations, morgues, incinerators, septic tanks, but also dedicated access channels, dedicated channels for medical staff, disinfection systems, call systems, suction systems, oxygen pipeline systems, sewage treatment systems, living supply center, liquefied gas supply station, rain cover, Kushiro, isolation, and other facilities.



Beijing Xiaotangshan Hospital picked 680 SARS patients, which was one-tenth of the global cases and one-seventh of the Chinese cases. It is a miracle that none of the 1,383 medical staff who took part in treatment and care were infected, and the cure rate is 98%.

The 25,000-square-meter temporary building rushed to build for 7 days and 7 nights, which has been called by experts from WHO: “A miracle in the history of world medical treatment.”

Benefits of building Xiaotangshan Hospital

Why build the Xiaotangshan Hospital? What are the benefits of building Xiaotangshan Hospital to bring all related cases together for treatment:

1) The spread of infectious disease sources in different hospitals is likely to cause mutual infection of patients of different diseases, which is not conducive to controlling the spread of the virus.

2) To achieve special treatment, maximize the process efficiency of equipment and medical staff, and achieve the epidemic control as soon as possible.

3) Expert medical personnel concentrate on patient treatment, optimize the efficiency of treatment and communication.

4) It can be dismantled after completing the disease control and return the occupied area to the local government.
