On July 31, it was announced at a Beijing Olympic Medical Work press conference that basic preparations for medical services during Olympic sporting events have been completed, and game-time medical services have been fully launched.

Deng Xiaohong, vice director of the Beijing Municipal Health Bureau, said that Beijing has set up a game-time emergency medical service system and has designated 24 hospitals as Olympic medical treatment sites in accordance with the requirements of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). Of the 24 hospitals, one will be an emergency center for pre-hospital care, while another, Beijing Boai Hospital, will specialize in care for persons with disabilities. 

Sino-Japanese Friendship Hospital will receive athletes, trainers, and judges in need of treatment. Peking Union Medical College Hospital will be responsible for treating IOC officials and distinguished guests. Anzhen Hospital will take in media personnel. The other hospitals will organize and send medical treatment teams to provide onsite medical services at Olympic venues.

Deng Xiaohong said that 80 medical treatment centers throughout the city have selected over 3000 personnel to form more than 30 treatment teams in order to provide necessary medical services at Olympic venues. A comprehensive medical services clinic has also been opened in the Olympic Village to provide treatment within the Olympic Village and Paralympic Village. In addition, a blood donation team will fulfill the need for blood infusions among athletes and trainers receiving clinical services during the Olympics.

If Olympic spectators suddenly fall ill, they can obtain help from volunteers and medical assistants, and go to a medical treatment station for spectators. There will be an ambulance at every station. Near the Olympic venues, there are 52 hospitals that can provide treatment for spectators.
