Yeung Wo Nursing Home / Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital [????- ]
Notes from the HK Sanatorium & Hospital website:
Located in Happy Valley, the Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital is one of the most prestigious and internationally accredited private hospitals in Hong Kong, owned by the Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital Limited. Founded as The Yeung Wo Nursing Home in 1922 with 28 beds, today the Hospital has around 480 beds and more than 30 specialty centres, offering diagnostic and therapeutic services in a comprehensive and one-stop fashion.
The story of the Hospital began with a leading group of Chinese medical practitioners and local dignitaries. In the face of barely adequate medical services for the local Chinese population in the early 1920s', the founders of the Hospital set out to provide quality medical care and affordable accommodation for the local Chinese community. They acquired the "Happy Retreat", once a popular amusement resort in Happy Valley, as the location of a new hospital. After renovation of the two then existing buildings, the Yeung Wo Nursing Home was inaugurated in September 1922.
