History

Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) started its service 1963 at the height of immigration from the Chinese mainland and huge population growth. At that time, it was managed by the Medical and Health Department of the Hong Kong Government. Over the next thirty years it became the major hospital in central Kowloon, and the centre of tertiary referral from all over Hong Kong. In 1991, the Hospital Authority (HA), a Statutory Body, was established. The HA took over the management of all public hospitals in Hong Kong in 1992. Since then, QEH was jointly managed by the Hospital Authority and her own QEH Hospital Governing Committee.



Introduction

Located in the heart of Kowloon, QEH operates a 24-hour Accident and Emergency service and a full spectrum of specialist services. It provides medical care in both inpatient and specialist outpatient services. QEH is also a referral centre of the major specialties.

Queen Elizabeth Hospital is a "Baby-Friendly Hospital"

The Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative (BFHI) is a global initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF launched in 1991. It aims to give every baby the best start in life by creating a health care environment that supports breastfeeding as the norm.

Queen Elizabeth Hospital firmly believes that breastfeeding offers enormous and irreplaceable health benefits to both mothers and children and has always promoted and supported breastfeeding. The Hospital adopts the recommendations of the “Ten Steps to Successful Breastfeeding” and the “International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes” by “UNICEF” and “WHO” in the Hospital Policy.

We train our staff, actively initiate and implement mother and baby-friendly services and do our best to help parents make informed decisions on infant feeding. The Hospital started with the Baby-Friendly Hospital accreditation process in 2013. We have successfully gone through different levels of assessment and accreditation in staff training and clinical service. The Hospital is designated as a “Baby-Friendly Hospital” in May 2016, and which is the first in Hong Kong. We will maintain regular monitoring and commit to improve our service for maternal and child health.
