Pok Oi Hospital (Chinese: 博愛醫院; Cantonese Yale: Bok'oi Yīyún) is a major hospital in Hong Kong, serving the northwest New Territories. Located in Au Tau in Yuen Long, it was founded by residents in 1919 when Yuen Long was a still rural town. The hospital later became a charity organisation, and extended its services to include schools, homes for the elderly, social welfare and other areas.

The hospital is now funded and managed by the charity and Hospital Authority.
