Union Hospital (Chinese: 仁安醫院) is a hospital in Tai Wai, Sha Tin, Hong Kong. It was established in 1994 and was developed by the Henderson Group, becoming the 12th private hospital in Hong Kong. It is the first private general hospital in the New Territories East part of the Hong Kong SAR.
The project for the building of the hospital was divided into two phases.
Phase one included a multi-story main hospital building with four ward floors (which accommodate 200 beds), a three-storey Medical Centre, a 24-storey staff quarters as well as an underground car park with more than 170 spaces. A total gross floor area of 27,756 m² has been constructed and over HK$400 million have already been expended.
The phase two hospital extension project was completed in 2006, with the construction costs exceeding HK$210 million. By constructing four new floors atop the existing building, an extra 107 beds and more new facilities have been provided to cope with the growing demand for the hospital services. The additions include the Minimally Invasive Centre, Day Therapy Centre, Surgical Ward and the 5-star-hotel-like Private Ward.
As of 2008, staff of the Hospital are presenting internationally on the subject of medical tourism.
