Hainan General Hospital, also known as the Hainan Clinical Medicine Research Institution, was established by an American priest in 1881 as the Haikou Gospel Hospital. In 1927, the gospel hospital teamed up with Hainan Hospital and changed its name to Hainan General Hospital in 1988, thus becoming the youngest people's hospital, yet with the longest history.

Currently, the hospital covers an area of nearly 400 mu (26.7 hectares), of which 340,000 square meters are for healthcare service or medical research. It employs 4,313 staff members, including 3,561 medical professionals, who collectively have performed over 60,000 operations annually. Offering over 3,000 beds, the hospital receives about 1.8 million inpatients and 85,000 outpatients every year.

Hainan General Hospital has developed a comprehensive system of healthcare facilities. It is home to 15 medical centers, 74 clinical medical departments, and 23 research laboratories. Its outstanding experts include 739 senior technicians, 701 doctors with master's degrees, and 29 certified experts who have made outstanding contributions to society. Adhering to the principle of "people-oriented, patient-centered," the hospital is the provincial center for medical treatment, first-aid service, further education, scientific research, and disease prevention.

The hospital has incubated many featured specialties, including hepatobiliary diseases, medical imaging, urography, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular intervention, minimally invasive surgery and rehabilitation medicine. Adhering to a strategy of overall development, the hospital has expanded eight key disciplines of Hainan province - neurosurgery, general surgery, cardiology, pediatrics, intensive care, neurology, emergency medicine and hematology.

Hainan General Hospital has made substantial progress in the development of high-tech diagnosis and treatment of complicated diseases or disorders, especially in laparoscopic surgery, minimally invasive techniques, liver transplantation, kidney transplantation, organ resuscitation, pre-hospital treatment of acute and critical illness, tumor intervention, vascular intervention, and more.

The hospital’s substantial investment in cutting-edge medical devices has played an important role in that progress. With a cost of 700 million yuan ($103 million), the hospital has equipped itself with PET-CT, 3.0T magnetic resonance inspectors, 1.5T magnetic resonance inspectors, 256-row CT, 64-row CT, SPECT, DSA 3, linear accelerators, gamma knife, X-knife, cell knife and other state-of-the-art clinical technologies.

The hospital is also a training base for junior medical professionals in Hainan province. As a non-directly-affiliated hospital of Nanhua University and Hainan College of Medicine, it undertakes the integrated teaching programs of their undergraduate students. There are currently two doctoral tutors, 22 master tutors, about 800 graduates, and nearly 100 postgraduates studying and interning in different departments and laboratories. In the past four years, the hospital has undertaken 24 national-level scientific research projects and 83 provincial-level scientific research projects
