St. Teresa's Hospital (Chinese: 聖德肋撒醫院) is a private hospital in Hong Kong. It is located at 327 Prince Edward Road West, in the Kowloon City District of Kowloon.[1]

St Paul's Hospital had grown out of the caring activities undertaken by the Sisters of the Roman Catholic Christian order St. Paul de Chartres for the poor and underprivileged of the Wan Chai and Happy Valley areas of Hong Kong Island, which commenced in the mid-19th century after the order had first established itself in the then British colony.

To provide geographically closer services for the people of the Kowloon area of Hong Kong, the Pauline Sisters founded St Teresa's Hospital in 1940. It is sometime known locally as the "French Hospital", or "Kowloon French Hospital" to distinguish it from St. Paul's Hospital in Hong Kong Island, which is also known colloquially as the "French Hospital".

St Teresa's has 1,050 beds and offers a very wide range of specialisations. The hospital is a member of Hong Kong Private Hospitals Association.

St Teresa's Hospital is surveyed and accredited bi-annually by QHA Trent Accreditation of the United Kingdom, a major international healthcare accreditation group.

School of Nursing[edit]

From 1969 to 2002, Saint Teresa's had a School of Nursing for Pupil Nurses (General Nurse). The school reopened in 2005 with a two-year programme, accredited by the Hong Kong Nursing Council, to train Enrolled Nurses on a practical and theoretical level. After completing the training, graduates are eligible for enrollment with the Hong Kong Nursing Council as a general Enrolled Nurse (Licensed practical nurse).[2]
