The Hospital is a 2006 Taiwanese drama starring Jerry Yan, Leon Dai, Janine Chang, Zhang Guozhu, Ng Man Tat and Tang Zhiping. It was produced by Yang Ming International Production and directed by Cài Yuè Xun. The series comprises thirty-nine 60-minute episodes and was boardcasted on free-to-air China Television from 15 August 2006 to 6 October 2006, Mondays to Fridays at 20:00.
The story of The Hospital is based on the 2000 Chinese novel of the same title by Taiwanese author Hou Wenyong. It depicts the power struggle and prestige in a national university-affiliated hospital in Taiwan, as well as the human relations within the community. Due to the resemblances in the title and story setting, Hou’s novel is often compared alongside the Japanese novel Shiroi Kyotō, written by Toyoko Yamasaki. Both works have been adapted into television series in Asia.
In 2007, the drama was nominated for eight awards at the 42nd Golden Bell Awards and won Best Directing for a Television Series and Best Supporting Actor in a Television Series.
