The ship, the Daishan Dao or Ark of Peace, arrived in the country on Wednesday for a week-long stopover.
 
While there, the Chinese military said it would treat residents for free.
 
The National newspaper reported that Prime Minister Peter O'Neill visited the ship at the weekend.
 
After its visit to Papua New Guinea, the Ark Peace will sail to Vanuatu and Fiji before moving on to South and Central America.
 
Hospital ships from the United States have also visited Pacific countries in recent years.
