Located in Changping District in northern Beijing, Jingdu is the largest private children's hospital in China and the only private tertiary children's hospital in Beijing.
Launched in June 2015 and located on a 40,000 square meter premises, Jingdu has 36 specialized departments, including an emergency center, and is a recognized leader in children's hematology, cardiology, dermatology, and stomatology. Jingdu officially became a designated medical institution for Beijing Medical Insurance Plan in 2017.

We highly value Jingdu's brand and professionalism, and firmly believe Jingdu will further solidify its leadership in the industry through continued investment in its medical team and service quality.”
Healthcare is one of the key investment sectors for Centurium. Previously, Centurium has made investments in two other hospitals in China, namely the UIB Group and Beijing Arion Cancer Hospital. Headquartered in Shanghai, UIB Group is a top-tier children and women’s medical services group with a children's hospital, an obstetrics and gynecology (OBGYN) hospital, and a postpartum center. Arion Cancer Hospital is currently under construction and expected to open by the end of 2020.
