第五站/雅麗氏何妙齡那打素醫院(已拆卸)

The Fifth Station/ Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital (Demolished)

位於般咸道及卑利士道交界的地段將成為英華女學校的全新校舍,而這裡亦是昔日雅麗氏何妙齡那打素醫院的所在地。該院由三所醫院合併而成,包括1893年建立的「那打素醫院」、1904年的「雅麗氏紀念產科醫院」及1909年的「何妙齡醫院」。三所醫院皆由倫敦傳道會(現「世界傳道會」)管理,並於1951年合併。

至七十年代,由於院舍日漸老化,倫敦傳道會原計劃分階段原址重建病院,惜未獲政府批准。八十年代,因政府撥出大埔地皮供醫院興建新址(現俗稱大埔那打素醫院),這塊西營盤地皮最終於八十年代尾出售,重建成住宅項目,賣地所得的收入用作興建大埔新址,而新院舍將交由醫院管理局營運。在新院舍施工期間,管理團隊及醫護人員暫時搬遷至新落成的東區醫院繼續服務大眾,至1997年大埔院舍落成後由醫護人員自由選擇於其中一所醫院工作。

On the junction of Bonham Road and Breezy Path will be the new building of Ying Wa Girl’s School, where the old Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital was originally located.  The complex constituted of three hospitals, including Nethersole Hospital, built in 1893; Alice Memorial Maternity Hospital, built in 1904; and Ho Miu Ling Hospital, built in 1909.  The three hospitals were all managed by the London Missionary Society (now the Council for World Mission), and were merged in 1951.

Due to the deterioration of the hospital buildings towards the 1970s, the London Missionary Society planned to reconstruct the hospitals on the original site in stages.  However, the proposal was not approved by the government.  In the 1980s, the government allocated a site in Tai Po for the construction of a new hospital, now commonly known as Tai Po Nethersole Hospital.  When the land of the site in Sai Ying Pun was eventually sold in the late 1980s for residential use, the revenue were invested in the new hospital building in Tai Po.

The management of the new hospital was to be handed over to the Hospital Authority, a government body responsible for managing Hong Kong’s public hospitals services.  During the construction of the new hospital, the hospital management team and the medical staff were temporarily relocated to the newly built Eastern Hospital so as to continue their services to the public.  In 1997, when the hospital building was completed in Tai Po, medical staff had the freedom to choose to work in either the Eastern Hospital or the hospital in Tai Po.
