The No. 3 Surgeon University Xinqiao Hospital Surgical Division is the kidney disease center for the entire army. It performs a large number of organ transplants. It probably is the largest such center in China.

The following is statistical information about kidney transplants at that hospital, "By 2002, it performed 2,590 kidney transplants. Since 1998, surgeons performed on the average 180 kidney transplants a year. I heard that surgeons in later years performed 24 kidney transplant operations in one day." That clearly shows that it must have a huge live organ bank with unwilling donors.
