Official Hospital Description

(Pleases note that the "Official Hospital Description" is directly from the hospital's website or other marketing materials.)

Qingdao Municipal Hospital (group) was founded in 1916, which is a three-class grade A hospital and also the largest comprehensive three-level hospital in Qingdao. The hospital is committed to building an international hospital, and in 2003 the International Clinic was founded.


English service available?


They have nurses who can help to translate and some doctors can speak English.

Are foreign doctors available?


Does hospital direct-bill insurance companies?


Where do mothers labor, deliver & recover?

Labor and deliver in separate rooms

Are labor, delivery, recovery rooms private?


Is NICU available on site?


Are natural birthing alternatives available (water birth, birthing on a yoga ball, etc...)?


Does the hospital support VBAC?


Is a birthing coach, spouse, friend and/or translator allowed in the delivery room during delivery?


Only the father can be in the delivery room if it is natural birth.

Because there are no GYN/OB specialists in the International Clinic, visits will be done with a Chinese doctor and a nurse translator from the International Clinic. For routine check-ups it is important to be aggressive about asking questions and getting answers. It is possible for the father to be allowed in the delivery room. In order to do this, permission must be obtained from the hospital. Most likely, the OB will not be able to authorize it, but he or she will need to get approval by someone with higher authority. (Be sure that this permission is written in the medical chart, or ask the doctor for a letter stating that permission has been granted.) Regardless of approval, if a C-section is necessary, no one will be able to be with you at the time of delivery. As Qingdao Municpal Hospital is very much a Chinese hospital, be prepared to bring everything with you to the hospital.


*Note: The Maternity and Pediatrics Wards occupy one of the older buildings on the hospital campus, so it’s not in the same building as the International Clinic on on the 4th Floor of the Main Building.

Founders of havingababyinchina.com, Jeremy and Jacquelyn have four children. The first three were born in three different hospitals in China and the last was born at home in the US. Jeremy and Jacquelyn created havingababyinchina.com in 2009 after they found little information for foreigners having babies in China. They love connecting with other foreigners having babies. Learn more about them on the about page.

    Take a look at our listings page under Qingdao and definitely check out Qingdao Women and Infant’s Hospital. They have some English speaking staff there.

    You can also check out Bellaire Medical Center & Cham Shan Int’l Medical Center. These offer English translation and even clinic checkups. For the birth, they would likely take you to a hospital like Women and Infant’s hospital. But they would help you along the way.
