The Hong Kong Adventist Hospital – Stubbs Road is part of the Adventist Health global network of over 160 hospitals with the common goal of providing premiere "compassionate personalized care" to patients in all parts of the world.
It was in the late sixties that Dr. Harry Miller initiated the idea of building a hospital to serve the community and advance the philosophy of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
With the help of two church missionaries, Pastor Ezra Longway and Pastor Robert Milne, they proposed to the Seventh-day Adventist Development Board to utilize the current location to build a hospital.
Dr. Chan Shun, the founder and former Chair and Managing Director of Crocodile Garments Limited, gave the first million dollars. Donations soon flooded in, with the tireless effort of the hospital's founders.
The Hong Kong Adventist Hospital – Stubbs Road has grown and developed in various specialties through the decades, but has remained a private, not-for-profit hospital. All revenues come from the provision of patient services.
Revenues in excess of expenses are re-invested into the Hospital to acquire new equipment and facilities, or to expand new services.
