Hong Kong Baptist Hospital

Founded in 1963, Hong Kong Baptist Hospital is a large private sector hospital located in the Kowloon area of Hong Kong.

HKBH is one of the social service institutions of the Baptist Church Convention of Hong Kong. It is wholly self-financing and non-profit-taking. It provides a very wide range of in-patient and out-patient services and is well-regarded not only in Hong Kong but also in China - for example, among Hong Kong's private sector hospitals HKBH has the most mainland expectant mothers giving birth .

HKBH has an active nursing school and is committed to educational development. It recently became affiliated with the Open University of Hong Kong, which will enable nurses to be trained up to degree standard .

Hong Kong Baptist Hospital is enthusiastically involved in international healthcare accreditation, and for many years it has been subjected to rigorous bi-annual survey by the UK's Trent Accreditation Scheme.
