About Huzhou

Huzhou is a prefecture-level city in northern Zhejiang province of Eastern China. Lying south of the Lake Tai, it borders Jiaxing to the east, Hangzhou to the south, and the provinces of Anhui and Jiangsu to the west and north respectively. The prefecture-level city of Huzhou administers six county-level divisions, including one economic development zone and two districts and three counties. These are further divided into 66 township-level divisions, including 50 towns, 10 townships and six subdistricts. Dr. Fred P. Manget (1880-1979) went from Georgia, USA, to Shanghai as a medical missionary in 1909. In 1912, he rented a building in Huzhou to establish a hospital that could hold about 30 beds. At the end of World War I, Dr. Manget returned to Shanghai and discussed with the representative of The Rockefeller Foundation in China about the Foundations intention to spread the practice of Western medicine in China.
