Founded in 1919 Pok Oi Hospital has always lived by its motto – “We Love, We Care, We Serve” – striving to provide quality medical and social services to the community at large. In those early days Yuen Long was just a backward rural area and medical services were a rare commodity. Local community leaders who were prompted by the real demand for readily available medical services to match the need of the locality established Pok Oi Hospital to provide free medical as well as charitable services to nurse and comfort those who were desperately in need.
The Hospital’s Board of Directors was established in 1950 to oversee the management of the ever increasing services provided by Hospital. Through the combined efforts of the Hong Kong Government, our past directors of the Hospital and distinguished members of community, Pok Oi has developed into a reputable charitable organization providing medical, social and educational services.
