Chen Jianli, a farmer from Shandong Province, slashed paediatrician Li Baohua in the head 13 times after breaking into the hospital armed with a machete in October, 2016, a high court said.
The man, said to be 36 years old, also prevented Li's colleagues from saving the 35-year-old medic as he lay in a pool of blood.
Chen was handed the capital punishment on 4 July by the People's High Court of Shandong after appealing against a previous death sentence ruled by an intermediate court last July.
The second trial took place in May.
