Introduction to Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Capital Medical University
Beijing Tiantan Hospital, Capital Medical University (Hereinafter referred to as Beijing Tiantan Hospital) was founded on August 23rd, 1956. It is a third-grade class-A hospital with the guide of neurosurgery and the characteristic of neuroscience cluster including medical treatment, teaching, research and preservation as well as a Asian clinical, scientific and teaching base of neurosurgery. Some medical institutions are located in Beijing Tiantan Hospital, such as China National Clinical Research Center for Neurological Diseases, China National Clinical Research Center for Neurological Diseases (NCRC-ND), CHINA National Medical Licensing Examination Clinical Skill Test Center-Tiantan, China National Cerebrovascular Disease Prevention and Treatment Office, WHO Col-laborating Centre for Research and Training in Neuroscience, Beijing Institute of Neurosurgery and the Fifth Clinical Medical College of Capital Medical University.
Since established sixty-two years ago, it has inherited the spirit of "noble medical ethics, excellence, rigorousness, practicality, diligence and honesty" and adhered to the purpose of "serving patients wholeheartedly". A number of Chinese clinical neuroscientists and leaders have emerged successively, such as Academician Wang Zhongcheng, Academician Zhao Jizong, Professor Dai Jianping and Professor Wang Yongjun. With the efforts of several generations, it suffered with the state and went through the difficult development history, becoming the leader of clinical neuroscience in China. At present, the hospital is endowed with three national key disciplines and three national key clinical specialties among which both Neurosurgery and Neurology took the first place in the scientific and technological value of Chinese hospitals in 2017 and in 2018 respectively. It is provided with an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, two Beijing scholars, a First-batch Young Yangtze River Scholar of the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China, three members of the National Special Support Program for the High-level Personnel Recruitment (Ten-thousand Talents Program) and eight members of Millions of New Century Talents. It won a Highest Science and Technology Award, a First-Class Prize of The State Scientific and Technological Progress Award and four Second Class Prizes of The State Scientific and Technological Progress Award. The fifteen doctoral training majors, twenty-five master training majors, seventy doctoral tutors and one hundred and forty-two master's tutors of the hospital were certified.
In response to the national strategic deployment of "noncapital functions of Beijing relief", it promotes the "Central Axis" Heritage Application work of Beijing City in coordination with the strategic layout of Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei coordinated development. A new hospital of Beijing Tiantan Hospital started to be constructed in December, 2013. It was in trial operation fully on October 6th, 2018. It was put into operation officially on January 30th, 2019. It has been the first large-scale comprehensive third-grade class-A hospital relocated fully in Beijing City since the People's Republic of China was founded.
Located at South Fourth Ring Western Road No. 119, Fengtai District, the new hospital covers an area of 181,581 square meters as well as a total building area of 352,294 square meters. It is divided into three functional areas, including the medical treatment area, the administrative scientific research area and the cadre health care and teaching area. It was endowed with sixty-seven clinical departments, eight medical and technical departments, one thousand six hundred and fifty authorized beds and three thousand two hundred and ten employees by 2019. According to the general requirement of building an international first-class innovative hospital, it is aimed to reorganize and adjust the development framework of dominant disciplines and basic disciplines with the center of diseases on the basis of the development strategy of "Strong Specialty and Great Comprehension". Around patients, it solves the development shortcomings of disciplines gradually, maintains the leading advantage of Neuroscience and stimulates the potential momentum of basic disciplines so as to provide the high-quality medical service for the residents from Southern Beijing as well as outsiders better.
In addition, it adheres to the new development concept of "innovation driving, talent priority, cooperation and win-win situation", and integrates the development strategy into the construction blueprint for Beijing Science and Technology Innovation Center. Firstly, implement the requirements related to the National Plan for the Improvement of Medical Service, introduce the concept of intelligent service, and build an intelligent hospital by applying some advanced technologies fully, such as artificial intelligence, internet of things, big data and cloud computing, so as to provide the high-quality, accurate, efficient and convenient medical service for patients; Secondly, explore the construction on research hospitals and research wards deeply as a first-batch research ward pilot institution in Beijing City. Establish a new drug research and development whole, undertake the national and foreign clinical drug research and help Beijing G20; Thirdly, drive the new development engine of biomedicine, strengthen innovation and cultivation, and firmly promote the transformation of new drug and instrument results in the field of nervous system diseases. Make positive progress in some aspects, such as the rapid genotyping detection, the new drug chlorogenic acid for glioblastoma treatment, the intervention of high-precision minimally invasive vascular into surgery robots, the global first artificial intelligence-assisted diagnosis of MRI and CT neuroimaging based on Artificial Intelligence technology, the brain network connectivity artificial intelligence anesthesia and the clinical syncope diagnosis system. The effect of innovation emerges gradually.
Success originates from aspiration and diligence only. The leading team of Beijing Tiantan Hospital will lead the staff of the hospital to implement the spirit of the Nineteenth National Congress of the CPC under the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. With the development strategy of "Strong Specialty and Great Comprehension", it will try to build the China Neuroscience Innovation Center and the National Clinical Medical Center, implement the medical spirit of "respecting life, saving lives, treating injuries, being willing to dedicate and great love" and give full play to the responsibility of public hospitals so as to make new and greater contributions to the construction on "Healthy Beijing".
