Through the analysis of the practical experience of each hospital, the crisis situation, the countermeasures, and the review of the hospital's rehabilitation methods.

The research method is a case study method. The main sources of research data are interviews, internal hospital file data, and related journal articles and media reports.
Research results: 1. This research explored the organizational behavior of the hospital and the strategic emergency points that it showed in the face of crisis. 2. "Transformative" leadership style, with timely and application-oriented management. 3. The implementation of epidemic prevention measures and response methods have gradually embarked on the right path from the chaos. 4.
