Tang Shiu Kin Hospital (Chinese: 鄧肇堅醫院) is a hospital in Wan Chai on Hong Kong Island in Hong Kong. It was opened in 1969 to replace the Eastern Public Dispensary and other clinics on Hong Kong Island.

The hospital merged with Ruttonjee Hospital in 1998 to form one hospital and is a critical centre for emergency and vehicular accidents.

It was named after its benefactor, the late Sir Tang Shiu-Kin, Kt, C.B.E., LL.D. O.S.T. (Japan), J.P., KStJ, a famous Hong Kong philanthropist.

The Hong Kong Government and the Hospital Authority had approved a project to remodel the Tang Shiu Kin Hospital into a Community Ambulatory Care Centre.

The centre houses a Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic, A&E Training Centre, Family Medicine Training Centre, Integrated Clinic, Staff Clinic, Community Nursing Service, Pharmacy, Integrated Palliative Day Care Centre, Violet Peel General Outpatient Clinic, Wellness In Action and Allied Health Departments including Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy.
