CCP Forbidden Area – 301 Military Hospital
Lots of Chinese have heard of 301 Hospital in Beijing (301).
It also frequently gets media’s attention.
Some media revealed that the 301 Hospital holds many
Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leaders’ secrets.
Someone commented that Jiang Zemin
was very reluctant to go there.
301 is the short name for Chinese People’s Liberation
Army General Hospital.
It is at the Army Grade and is directly under
the General Logistics Department.
It is responsible for medical and health care for the CCP’s
Central Committee and Central Military Committee.
301 was originally the code for a school in the North China
Military Region, which was later changed to a hospital.
The CCP Central Committee transferred
their medical resources there from the Union Hospital.
According to China News Week, the “South Building”
of 301 has the most stringent security.
People need passes to enter, and has security.
There are also sentries, as well as teams formed
by three taking turns to guard.
It is said that the CCP Central Committee
leaders receive treatment and resting here.
However, commentator Ren Baiming said that 301
also plays another role.
Ren Baiming: “CCP’s 301 is a very mysterious place.
In the past, high-level CCP veterans conducted
secret planning there in the name of getting treatment.
301 is managed by the Chairman of the Central Office, whom
is equivalent to housekeeper for the highest authority figure.
During the CCP’s internal struggles, when those disobedient
are sent to 301 for treatment, it means they are controlled by the political opponents and their lives are controlled.
Ren Baiming took former CCP Secretary Yang Shangkun
as an example.
Yang was sent to 301 for a cold, but soon passed away.
Ren Baiming: “Jiang Zemin wanted to crush Yang’s family.
The then healthy Yang Shangkun was sent to 301 for a cold.
Soon he passed away. It was widely suspected
that his death is closely related to Jiang Zemin.
Chapter Three of ‘The Real Jiang Zemin’ reveals that
Jiang Zemin always wanted to crush Yang Shangkun.
Yang was in charge of the military.
Jiang’s helper Ze Qinghong used various means
to convince Deng Xiaoping to get rid of the Yang family.
On September 15, 1998, CCP announced that
Yang Shangkun died at 92 in Beijing.
Since then, CCP high-level veterans were afraid
of going to 301.
Ren Baiming: “After Hu Jintao took power, Lin Jihua,
part of Hu’s team, took over the Central Office.
Jiang Zemin was very reluctant to go to 301
because of what he did before.
He does not go there if not needed.
He always go to Shanghai for treatment.
On July 6, 2011, Hong Kong’s ATV reported Jiang’s death
at 301, causing global attention.
Before the incident had calmed down, Hong Kong’s Outpost
published an article in February.
It reported that Jiang Zemin was sent to 301
again during Christmas time in 2011.
After the Wang Lijun incident, it was said that Wang was
getting psychiatric treatment at 301.
It was reported that in addition to treating illness, 301
is the best “cover-up place” for CCP officials to respond to different situations.
CCP high-level veteran Wang Zhen went to 301
during the “Gang of the Four.”
This was to secretely communicate with Deng Xiaoping
and Chen Yun to overthrow the “Gang of the Four.”
Wang Juntao, former deputy editor of Beijing’s
Economic Weekly commented: “CCP’s leaders trust the military the most.
Many doctors have complicated backgrounds,
but those from the military had been filtered.
There is another hospital just for high-level officials,
including central leaders such as Mao Zedong. This is the 305 Hospital.”
Hong Kong’s Wenweipo reported that when former
CCP leader Hua Guofeng passed away on August 20, 2008, his mourning was set up at the 305 Hospital.
