As anywhere else, there are so many different hospitals/medical centers/clinics in China.
However, in China, we have a complicated systems of hospital levels.

The first one or the "lower level" is the First level hospital. These hospitals are usually very small community hospital/clinic, where they don't perform many surgeries (probably just some superficial lump removal or incision of abscess). Usually in these hospitals, they treat some minor illness, such as common cold, mild allergy, or diarrhea, etc. They also manage some chronic illness, if the conditions are already under good control. For example, if you have high blood pressure, and managed well, but you need to routine check up of blood pressure and prescriptions.

Then there are second level hospitals, which is the "middle level". And they are subdivide into A level and B level (A is on the higher level). In these hospitals, they treat more common diseases and more serious ones, for example, they can perform an appendectomy, or remove a gall bladder. They also have plenty of inpatients admitted for other medical reasons. Some county hospitals and district hospitals are more likely to be among the second level hospitals.

Then the third level hospitals, which is the "high level". And they are subdivide into A level and B level (A is on the higher level). The Third A (三甲 sān jiǎ )are usually the hospitals where local Chinese prefer to go to. These hospitals usually treat a variety of diseases, from minor illness such as common cold to more complicated autoimmune disease, perform surgeries ranging from a small lump removal to complicated transplant or heart surgeries. Usually, hospitals affiliated to universities, municipal/city hospitals, provincial hospitals or some county hospitals are among these hospitals.

Due to language barrier (if you don`t speak Chinese well), it is better to go to the Third A level (三甲 sān jiǎ )as doctors in these hospitals are more likely to be able to communicate with you in English or other languages.

If you go to Beijing or Shanghai, or some other cities that are more international, you can go to the international hospitals in those cities, where most of the staffs there speak English well, and some even speak other languages well. You may even see a doctor from your country in those hospitals.

However, other than those international hospitals, even if you go to hospitals where doctors speak english well, you may still have difficulty talking to other staffs in the hospitals, such as the admission office staff. So it is always better to ask a friend who speak both Chinese and your language (or English) with you.

But one thing you need to know is that, it is better to ask a Chinese friend who has been in the city for a couple of years or ask a friend who study medicine/work in the healthcare field. If your Chinese friend is also new to the place, he or she might also have no idea which hospitals are good ones and are the ones you need to go to.

I also read some blogs written by foreigners in China talking about going to hospital here, and there is one mistake I want to point out.

If your Chinese friend who is not a doctor tells you to neglect doctor's advice, such as getting a certain test/exam(CT, ultrasound, etc.), please do not just follow this friend's suggestion. Some people here do not trust doctors that much, and they may tell you not to follow the doctor's advice because they think these tests are not necessary. But doctors are trained for this job, and their advices are more professional, but your friend's advice on this is not. Doctors saw/heard/witnessed too many patients suffering severe consequences of questioning the doctors' professional judgement/advice.

There are a few hospitals are designated for certain conditions, where you can not get full range of treatment in other hospitals due to local regulations.

1.Anhui Chest Hospital 安徽省胸科医院

The hospital usually treat diseases related to chest, such as lung diseases. And for TB (tuberculosis), this is where you can get the final diagnosis confirmed. Even if you go to other hospital for initial screening test for TB, you still need to go to this hospital or have your samples sent here for confirmation. And if you need treatment for TB, this is the place.
In addition, this hospital locates near the First Affiliated hopsital of Anhui Medical University (on the same street)

This hospital is mainly specialized in psychiatry or mental illness. Though in some other hospitals, there are also psychiatry department, but usually if a patient needs to get admitted to hospital for mental illness, ths is the hospital.
In addition, this hospital locates near the First Affiliated hopsital of Anhui Medical University (on the same street, no more than five minutes walking distance)

3.Hefei 6th People's Hospital (AKA: Hefei Infectious Disease Hospital,Infetious Disease Hospital of Anhui Provinical Hospital) 合肥市第六人民医院(合肥市传染病医院、安徽省立医院感染病院)

There are many hospitals/clinics in Hefei. But for foreigners in Hefei who do not speak Chinese: If you have to go to hospital by yourself, it is better to go to large public hospitals where you are more likely to find some doctors who can talk to you in English or even other languages .
Some of those hospitals are listed here:

1. the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University.(安徽医科大学第一附属医院)
Address: Jixilu 218, Shushan District, Hefei.蜀山区绩溪路218号

This is one of the oldest and most famous hospitals in Anhui Province. It sits next to the main campus of Anhui Medical University. There are many famous professors who practice medicine here. In addition, there are some international medical students (including final year MBBS students and some postgraduate students).

A new branch/campus is going to open soon, called "Gaoxin branch" (安徽医科大学第一附属医院高新分院), near the start point of Airport Highway, in the west part of the city. However, the latest news is that there won't be all specialties available in the new branch.

2.the Second Affiliated Hospital of Anhui Medical University.(安徽医科大学第二附属医院)
Address: Furonglu 678, Hefei. 合肥市经济技术开发区芙蓉路678号

This is a new hospital, but it is a direct affiliation of Anhui Medical University, so this is also a good one. It has received JCI approval, meaning you might be able to use your home country health insurance(of course, you have to check that with your health insurance provider first). This hospital sits next the southern branch campus of Anhui Medical University. There are many famous professors who practice medicine here. In addition, there are some international medical students who may take rotations there.

3.Anhui Provincial hospital(安徽省立医院)
Address: Lujianglu 17, Hefei. 安徽省合肥市庐江路17号

Another very famous hospital in Anhui. Though not a direct affliation of Anhui Medical University, many senior doctors also have faculty positions in Anhui Medical University.

There is another major branch campus of this hospital, called the "southern branch/campus"(省立医院南区), AKA Anhui Cardio-Cerebro-Vascular Hospital (安徽心脑血管医院),address:  Tian'er Rd1, Shushan Qu, Hefei). Despite its alias indicating heart dieasess and nerves system diseases, it has all different specialties.

"Western Campus" (Anhui Provinice Cancer Hospital, address:  Huanhu Dong Lu 107(it is also part of West Ring Road) , Shushan, Hefei Shi, Anhui Sheng, China)which is mainly focus on oncology (cancer, tumor) , including different surgical departments but they mainly treat cancer patients.

4.Hefei First People's Hospital(合肥市第一人民医院)
      Address:  Huaihelu 390, Luyang District, Hefei.安徽省合肥市庐阳区淮河路390号
 A good hospital in Hefei, also called the third affliated hospital of Anhui Medical University (though not its most common name).

5.the First Affiliated Hospital of Anhui University of Traditional Medicine 安徽中医药大学第一附属医院
       Adress: Meishanlu 117, Hefei. 安徽省合肥市梅山路117号。
       Another very famous hospital in Anhui. It sits next to the main campus of Anhui University of Traditional Medicine. There are many professors who practice medicine here too. In addition, there are some international medical students.

6. the PLA 105 Hospital(中国人民解放军105医院)
       The locals usually just call it 105 医院(105 hospital). It is a military hospital, but also open to civilians. It is also a non-direct affiliation & teaching hospital of Anhui Medical University, meaning there are medical students taking rotations there.
        Adress: Changjiang Xi Lu 424, Hefei. 安徽省合肥市长江西路424号

Notice: First, there might be several campus/branch of one hospital, what are listed in this article are their main/original campus address.
           Second, there are a few other hospitals which are also good, but some are under new constructions so they might move to new address anytime.
           Third, I didn't write the phone numbe of the hospitals for the following reasons: you need to speak Chinese if you want to call them. the phone number they left on their official websites might not be the number for making appointments (in China,  patients usually do not call the hospital phone number for making appointments or inquiry, the exception is that patients may call the number of certain departments where they will/have been to.)
        Fourth, don't rely on google map. The address given on google map regarding local hospitals might not be accurate/might be outdated.
