In China, tuberculosis should be treated in designated hospitals. Not every hospital is approved for treating TB (if you get the diagonsis in those hospitals, usually, they will transfer you or ask you to go the the designated hospitals).
According to Hefei CDC website, by Dec 29, 2016, the following hospitals are desingated hopsitals for treating tuberculosis:
- Hefei Infectious Disease Hospital
Address:Susonglu 218, Hefei
- Anhui Chest Hospital
Address: Jixilu 397, Hefei
- Yangmiao central community healthcare center of Changfeng County
Address: Hehuailu 345, Yangmiao County Street, Changfeng County

- Lujiang County People’s Hospital
Address: Wenming Zhong Lu 32, Lujiang Zhen, Lujiang County
- Chaohu Hospital of Anhui Medical University

For foreign patients who do not speak Chinese, I would recommend the first two hospitals where there might be some doctors who can talk to you in English.
Tuberculosis is caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria usually attack the lungs, but TB bacteria can attack any part of the body such as the kidney, spine, and brain.
Not everyone infected with TB bacteria becomes sick. As a result, two TB-related conditions exist: latent TB infection (LTBI) and TB disease. If not treated properly, TB disease can be fatal.
