During the Anti-Japanese War, Guangji Hospital helped thousands of the wounded. It was once occupied by Japan and renamed as Tongren Hospital. After the war, the hospital was taken over again by the Church Missionary Society until the early days of New China.
With the blossom of the second industrial revolution, Guangji Hospital was equipped with power generators, water tower, X-ray machine and other modern equipment. At the same time, Song Mu Chang Branch was established for phthisis patients.
A medical school affiliated to the hospital, the Guangji Medical School, was established as one of the earliest medical education institutions in China. Since founded, it had cultivated a great number of medical and nursing talents who also took part into the Hospital's development or provided their services across the country.
Dr. David Duncan Main, a British physician, presided the hospital. He dedicated his life to serving people in distress. Under his leadership, the hospital became one of the best healthcare facilities in Far East at that time. Through all the years, Dr. Main's spirit of challenge has been faithfully practiced as the hospital continues to open new chapters.
An opium rehabilitation center managed by Dr. Meadows, a missionary doctor from the British Church Missionary Society, opened in Hangzhou. Several years later, the center transformed to a comprehensive hospital named Guangji, meaning universal benevolence.
