1835年,美國第一位傳教士醫生伯駕在廣州十三行創辦眼科醫局,這便是著名的教會醫院——博濟醫院的前身;便是中國近代最早的西式醫院——如今的中山大學孫逸仙紀念醫院。

In 1835, Peter Parker, the first U. S. medical missionary to China, opened the Ophthalmic Hospital at the Thirteen Alley in Guangzhou, which was rebuilt in 1859 after the Second Opium War by John Glasgow Kerr and renamed as the Canton Hospital (or Hospital of Diffusive Benevolence), the predecessor of the Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hospital and the first western hospital in China.
