The field of traditional Chinese medicine in Tianjin Binhai New Area (TBNA for short) continues to develop and has made great progress. At present, TBNA has 1 public third-level traditional Chinese medicine hospital, 1 public second-class traditional Chinese medicine hospital, 1 public second-level traditional Chinese medicine hospital, 18 public general TCM hospitals, 31 community health service centers, 121 community health service stations, 82 village healthcare rooms, 4 private traditional Chinese medicine hospitals, 34 traditional Chinese medicine clinics, and 44 Chinese medicine clinics — the traditional Chinese medicine medical service system in TBNA has been initially established.

On June 30, the TBNA TCM Hospital, i.e., the No.4 Affiliated Hospital of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine opened. In the Chinese Medicine Hall on the second floor of the brand-new complex, residents came to see the doctor for consultation. Knowing that a new hospital was opened at the door of their house and hearing that experts from Tianjin City were here, many residents can’t restrain their joy, and rushed to queue up for consultation early in the morning. “I used to take my child to Hangzhou Road to see a doctor. It was a bit far away. Now it’s much more convenient here. With so many experts, it’s easy to register, and it’s very convenient to see a doctor.” Ms. Zhang who lives in Beitang Street said excitedly.

Consultation by a number of city-level experts and famous doctors

Before the hospital was officially opened, Binhai-Zhongguancun Science and Technology Park had only one community healthcare service center, which could only meet the basic medical needs of residents. The opening of the new hospital not only effectively solves medical problems of residents in Bestwon, but also brings to the people in TBNA many city and district-level famous prescription doctors and academic leaders in fields of endocrinology, geriatric diseases, psychosomatic, tumor, heart, kidney, gynecology, dermatology, acupuncture and encephalopathy, rehabilitation, etc. to allow people in TBNA to enjoy high-quality TCM diagnosis and treatment services at their doorsteps. Gu Enpeng, Dean of TBNA TCM Hospital, i.e., the No.4 Affiliated Hospital of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, introduced to reporters: “In order to make it easier for patients to seek medical treatment, we have opened an online appointment platform, and the majority of patients can search through the Careate Medical App for TBNA TCM Hospital (Bestown) to conducts appointment registration. At the same time, we have also launched a free home delivery service for the entire TBNA to better serve residents there.”

It is claimed that the TBNA TCM Hospital, i.e., the No.4 Affiliated Hospital of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine covers an area of 60,165 square meters with a total construction area of 152,000 square meters. The project is located at No. 292, Liuzhou East Road, Binhai-Zhongguancun Science and Technology Park. At present, the outpatient department of the hospital has 26 clinical departments, 13 inpatient wards, 11 medical technical departments and 23 specialized outpatient clinics. There are now 500 hospital beds in the hospital, of which 5 are in the ICU. The completion of the project not only optimizes the investment attraction environment of Binhai-Zhongguancun Science and Technology Park, but also meets medical needs of nearby residents and makes up for the vacancy of TCM medical services in the surrounding area. “The introduction of new equipment and high-level talents has greatly improved the overall medical level of our hospital. For example, Director Jia Yingjie of the First Affiliated Hospital of the University of Chinese Medicine will visit us for a long time. Under his leadership, our young generation of medical staff will also greatly improve their medical level. At the same time, he will not only come to the clinic by himself, but lead a team as a whole. In this way, our medical level will be improved rapidly through the cross integration of teams. Zhou Bing, secretary of the Party Committee of the TBNA TCM Hospital, i.e., the No.4 Affiliated Hospital of Tianjin University of Traditional Chinese Medicine, told reporters.
