Following a team meeting and breakfast we boarded a bus for the short ride to Shijiazhuang First Hospital. Shijiazhuang First Hospital is a 1,100 bed facility. We experienced a warm welcome at a ceremony attended by the Rotaplast team and over 50 hospital staff members. This was followed by a tour of the ward and operating areas. Over 60 were present for a joint meeting of hospital and Rotaplast staff. Dr. Tomlinson, our Medical Director, discussed our procedures and emphasized the importance of communications. We were treated to a lunch by our hosts at the hospital.
