寄语博济 On the Boji Spirit

 

  百年博济,百年沧桑。最近《博济医院百年》一书已录入《岭南文库》再版发行,这标志着“博济医院”所占有的历史地位。本书前言述:“博济医院的三位朋友为这本历史书写了序-----他们代表了三个伟大的国家;为使博济医院成为今天的博济医院,这三个国家的儿女们都曾经献出过自己的生命:中国—英国—美国”。不仅如此,中国伟大的民主革命从“博济”启程,其影响不但超出了医院的范围,而且超出了医学和医疗事业的领域!

 

  On the Boji Spirit With its 100 year history,  Boji remains a name known to many today. Recently,  At the point of a lancet: one hundred years of the Canton hospital 1835-1935 by William Warder Cadbury was included into Ling Nan Wen Ku (Lingnan Anthology) and reprinted(in Chinese),  which indicates the historical significance Boji Hospital held.  In its introduction, the book reads, “The editor invited three scholars to write the preface for this book.  The three scholars represent three countries,  which all made great contribution, even the sacrifice of the lived of their people, to Boji Hospital.  The three countries are China, Britain and America.”  The Chinese Republican revolution geminated in Boji Hospital.   Boji Hospital made its influence felt both in medicine and far beyond that.
