HistoryEdit

In 1960, Dr. Harry Willis Miller was asked by the Seventh-day Adventist Church to establish a hospital in Hong Kong. Now Dr. Miller was no stranger to local Chinese. In 1925 he established the Shanghai Sanitarium and Hospital in China, a country he first visited in 1903.

Mr. Tong Ping Yuen, a friend of Dr. Miller and the owner of the South Seas Textile Factory, donated a floor. With the help of the Medical and Health Department, a land grant was secured from the Government. The Jockey Club provided funds for the ground floor. Equipment was funded by the American Government.

The Hospital was officially opened in May 1964. Owing to a shortage of funds, it was five years later, in June 1970, that the hospital building was completed with the generous donation from the American Government.
