The YCH was established in 1960 under the Yangon General Hospital with a capacity of 60 beds. In 1962–1963, the hospital moved to Myenigon with the capacity of 80 beds. In 1963, the hospital moved again to current 8.73-acre (3.53 ha) compound. The current main building was built in 1970 with Canadian aid, and opened in September 1978.
