18 October 2011
Chairperson of Dubai Healthcare City Authority HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, wife of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, today inaugurated the region’s first TongRenTang Clinic in the heart of the Emirate’s Dubai Healthcare City.
Prior to the opening ceremony, Deyuan Wei, the mastermind behind the Dubai facility, spoke about the realisation of a dream she has nurtured for many years. “It is such an honour for us to have HRH Princess Haya’s support for the opening of our first clinic in the Gulf. We are very excited to be in Dubai Healthcare City; the various teams at DHCC have been instrumental in making our dream a reality. They have guided us through the formalities and enabled everything to come together smoothly, allowing us to achieve what we have,” stated Wei.
“As a Chinese national, I have had the good fortune of growing up with TongRenTang and have firsthand experience of the wonders of traditional Chinese medicine from a very early age. So it is with great excitement that I bring this special science to the residents of the UAE and surrounding GCC countries,” Wei continued.
The Clinic is strategically situated in the heart of DHCC and boasts state-of-the-art facilities with an in-house pharmacy and retail outlet offering a full range of traditional Chinese medicinal products. The team of professional doctors, pharmacists and eminent physicians from the TongRenTang dynasty, all hold both a Chinese and UAE physician’s license and are accredited members of TCM professional bodies such as the World Acupuncture Organisation.
Dr Ayesha Abdullah Managing Director, Dubai Healthcare City said: “We are delighted that TongRenTang, the world-renowned Chinese brand, chose Dubai Healthcare City as its location of choice in the Gulf. As a pioneer in Traditional Chinese Medicine, which has been serving patients around the world for hundreds of years, the presence of TongRenTang will further support our vision to be a leading centre for high quality healthcare. Congratulations to TongRenTang and welcome to the DHCC community.”
All the herbs in TongRenTang Gulf are 100% natural and certified by internationally recognized laboratories and approved by World Health Organization standards. “Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as other alternative therapies, have continuously suffered misconceptions, making them a ‘last resort’ consideration. But TCM is a unique science that carries with it centuries old formulae, bringing hope and joy to those who have previously not known how it feels to be happy and healthy,” stated Wei.
Established in 1699, Beijing TongRenTang is a renowned, time-honoured institution in the field of traditional Chinese medicine. TongRenTang began producing drugs for the palace’s imperial drugstore, and became the exclusive supplier of medicine to families of the Royal court during the Qing Dynasty for a period of 188 years, thanks to its unique formulae, superior materials, excellent processing methods as well as its outstanding effectiveness.
TongRenTang’s culture and traditions are based on four principles that are the essence of its enterprise and fully reflect the traditional Chinese way of life. First and foremost, at the heart of the clinic, is its employees’ will to serve people and cultivate benevolence. Secondly, at TongRenTang, they believe that workmanship is never compromised despite complex production processes and sufficient raw materials are used regardless of cost. Third, they encourage an environment based on virtue, honesty and recognition. And finally, TongRenTang promises unique recipes, top-class raw materials, excellent workmanship and evident curative effect.
