       The West China Second University Hospital of Sichuan University (WCSUH- SCU), also known as West China Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Sichuan University, is directly supervised by the National Health Commission of China. It originated from the Renji Women’s Hospital that was set up in 1896. In 1987, the hospital was established on the basis of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Department of Pediatrics in the University Hospital of the former West China University of Medical Sciences. After the merger of West China University of Medical Sciences and Sichuan University, the hospital has taken its present names. The hospital was one of the first national top tertiary hospitals and serves as a medical center for women and children in Southwestern China. It plays an important role in medical service, education, research, disease prevention, and healthcare.                                                

       The hospital has two campuses, Huaxi campus and Jinjiang campus, with 1580 licensed beds, 24 clinical departments/divisions, and 7 medical supporting departments.  
       Among its 3865 staff members, there are 134 professors, 217 associate professors, 81 advisers for doctoral degree candidates, 146 advisers for master degree candidates. Our staff hold over thirty key positions in national academic associations/societies  
       As a referral center in Southwest China, we provide medical services to women and children with critical diseases. In 2021, we had 3.39 million outpatient and emergency visits, discharged 88,000 patients, performed 126,000 operations, and delivered 18,000 babies.  

In 2021, we first introduced da Vinci Xi surgical robot in Sichuan Province to carry out operations for gynecological malignant tumors and pediatric surgeries. Among our obstetric patients, more than 70% come with high risk diseases. The first tube baby and the first IVF baby with micro-TESE and ICSI in the province were successfully born in the hospital. In Southwest China, the hospital first introduced umbilical cord blood stem cell transplantation for the treatment of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2000. The complete remission rate of pediatric acute leukemia in the hospital has reached 95% plus, and the 5-year disease-free survival rate is 70%. Every year, more than 6,000 premature infants and critically ill newborns are treated; over 500 kids with congenital heart diseases recover after interventional surgery in our hospital.
