Queen Mary Hospital (Chinese: 瑪麗醫院), located in Pok Fu Lam on Hong Kong Island of Hong Kong, is the flagship teaching hospital of the Faculty of Dentistry and Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine of the University of Hong Kong. It has around 1,400 beds. It provides general medical and surgical services to the residents of Western and Southern districts and is a tertiary referral centre for the whole territory of Hong Kong and beyond.
The hospital was founded in 1937, and its first building was opened that year by Andrew Caldecott, the then Governor of Hong Kong. The hospital was named for Queen Mary, widow of King George V of the United Kingdom. It then replaced the Government Civil Hospital as the main accident and emergency hospital for Hong Kong Island. The hospital was greatly expanded over the years, with two major expansion projects completed in 1955 and 1983.
Queen Mary Hospital's main ward tower, Block K, is the tallest hospital building in Asia at 137 metres (28 storeys), and is the third tallest in the world, behind London's Guy's Hospital and Houston's O'Quinn Medical Tower at St. Luke's Hospital.
