On the homepage, if you need make an appointment with doctors, you could see several button below the the name of the hospital, then dub the button as “就医导诊”（jiu yi dao zhen in Pinyin）, clicking the downward menu at the button as “预约挂号”(yu yue gua hao in Pinyin), then the appointment system is presented in front of you. One could use the system to make an appointment with the doctor who you need. If you don’t make the appointment with doctors, you could go to the outpatient department directly and ask the guiding nurses for helping. If there is something happening suddenly for first-aid, one could call the number “96999” to get a hand from the emergency department of the hospital.

If one catches the TB (tuberculosis) unfortunately, he could get helping for diagnosis and treatment in the specialism hospital, named as Guiyang Fei Ke Yi Yuan (specialism for lung diseases, such as tuberculosis, specialism infection of lung). The hospital’s addresse is No.128 Northern Huaxi Avenue(Huaxi dadao beiduan), Nanming District, Guiyang.
