Central Medical Hospital were established in 1929. And then, based on the "Memorandum of Organization of Central Medical Hospital, Provincial and Municipal Branch", branch hospitals were set up in all provinces. Guangdong Branch and the county hospitals were established in 1931, and a variety of activities were carried out. However, because of the failure of striving for administrative power by Central Medical Hospital, the local Branch hospitals were defined as association. In addition, lack of powerful leaders and support of government led to the weakening of its function. They failed to develop traditional Chinese medicine further.
