Matilda International Hospital, Hong Kong





Matilda International Hospital, Hong Kong


Originally from the UK, Granville Sharp and his wife Matilda travelled a long way, encountering many adventures (including shipwreck) along their way, before arriving in Hong Kong. Matilda died in 1893, and Granville bequeathed a hospital to be constructed in his wife's memory upon his own death.
The hospital admitted its first patients in 1907, at that time providing free care to expatriates. Non-British were barred from The Peak by legislation, and could not benefit from being treated in the hospital. The original building, which is still in use today, is outstandingly beautiful, as is the hospital's location in The Peak
1,400 beds
