Beijing United Family Hospital – Event Support and New Appointment
BJU have been busy supporting various schools with free First Aid at their Spring Fairs and they hosted their most successful ever Blood Drive at ISB last Saturday, supported by the Boy Scouts of Troop 943. They will be on hand at the WAB Fun Fair on Saturday May 24 with a First Aid booth and their ambulance. Young children are welcome to stop by for a look-see at the ambulance and to play a game. They are also providing First Aid support for the Sports Beijing tournament taking place on May 25 and 26 at ISB. The Shunyi Clinic has a new rehabilitation therapist, Mr. Wang Wei, joining the team. Mr. Wang comes to BJU with over five years of working experience in Singapore and Hong Kong. Orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Ren Gang is now seeing patients on Friday’s in Shunyi. Dr. Ren has been with BJU for several years and having him in Shunyi one day per week will certainly be an added convenience for his existing patients.
