香港開埠初期,西營盤在醫療系統的建構過程中佔有重要的位置,至今亦留下不少足跡。西營盤是早年香港的華人聚居地,在公立醫療設施尚未普及之前,區內出現不少能反映傳統華人民間醫療觀念的建設;亦因西營盤的土地成本遠低於中上環,當政府或其他團體計劃建設醫療設施,均視西營盤為一個理想地點,故此區內亦可見不少醫療與公共衛生的發展痕跡。

During Hong Kong’s earliest days as a British colony, Sai Ying Pun played an important role in the establishment of the city’s medical system.  The footprints of such development can still be found today.

Sai Ying Pun was one of the earliest settlement sites of the Chinese in Hong Kong, and before government-funded medical services became widely available to the public, there were numerous healthcare facilities in the district.  These facilities treated their patients based on the philosophy of Chinese folk medicine.  In addition, land in Sai Ying Pun was cheaper than in Central and Sheung Wan, and so the government and other organizations chose Sai Ying Pun as an ideal site to build healthcare institutions.  As a result, one can find many traces of the development of medical and healthcare services in Sai Ying Pun.
