Tsan Yuk Hospital: a century of dedicated obstetrical service


  • Barry Ming Chak Law
  • Pui Wah Hui Queen Mary Hospital




For over a century, Tsan Yuk Hospital (TYH) has embodied excellence in clinical service, training, and research. It is synonymous with maternity care for many in Hong Kong. Its mission is best summarised by its Chinese name 贊育醫院, meaning to support and nurture newborns, and its slogan 好生之謂德 保赤以為懷 (outside the old TYH), which refers to safeguarding precious new lives.
