Hospital Kiang Wu (Chinese: 鏡湖醫院), a privately owned hospital located in Macau Peninsula, is one of three hospitals in Macau, China. Founded in 1871, the hospital is run by the Kiang Wu Charitable Association and offered Chinese medical services. Renowned doctor Sun Yat-Sen brought Western medicine services to the hospital. The hospital has had four different sites, the last built in 2000.

Currently there is no Western-style medical school in Macau, so all indigenous intending doctors have to either qualify overseas, or qualified doctors have to be brought in from outside.

Currently the hospital is not engaged in international healthcare accreditation.
