Kwong Wah Hospital Hospital Authority

Introduction

In view of the government’s Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Development Policy, the TWGHs established “Kwong Wah Hospital-The Chinese University of Hong Kong Chinese Medicine Clinical Research and Services Centre” and “Wilson T.S. Wang Chinese Medicine Clinical Research and Services Centre”, providing TCM treatment to out-patients and in-patients respectively.

The TWGHs and the KWH adapt to a changing society and the demand for both Chinese and Western medicine through continuously enhancing and expanding medical care services. In 2011, the TWGHs and the KWH set up the Traditional Chinese and Western Medicine Team to provide in-patients with integrated treatment.

 



  Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine In-patient Services is operated as doctor visits: Chinese doctors from TWGHs Wilson T.S. Wang Chinese Medicine Clinical Research and Services Centre visit patients at the KWH wards, while certain treatments are performed in the treatment centre located on the 6/F of the Hospital’s North Wing.

Through Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine Services, patients are treated by Western specialists during their stay, coupled with diagnosis from Chinese doctors and Chinese medicine/acupuncture treatment. This can enhance the patients’ health, quality of life and long-term effectiveness of the treatment. When necessary, Chinese and Western doctors diagnose in-patients together to come up with a treatment protocol.

To continue their treatment after discharge, patients can choose to have their follow-up consultations in either Chinese or Western medicine out-patient department.
