Tung Wah Hospital
12 Po Yan Street

Tung Wah Hospital is the oldest charitable hospital in Hong Kong. Its construction was commenced in 1870 and completed in 1872. The name Tung Wah is said to stand for ‘the Chinese people of Guangdong province’. The hospital was founded to take over the work of Kwong Fook I Tsz, which had become a refuge for sick and poor Chinese. As the hospital could not cope with the growing demand for medical services, it was redeveloped in 1933, with the main block completed in 1934.
