Beijing Tongren Hospital
Founded 1886

Beijing Tongren Hospital (北京同仁医院) is a famous [1] institution which specializes in ophthalmology and otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat medicine). Its records state that it was established in 1886 by an American Methodist church.

The hospital has had to take steps, including registering its name as a trademark, in order to protect its reputation against people fraudulently using the "Tongren" title.
