香港浸信會醫院的籌建歷史

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articlepeer-review

Abstract

第二次世界大戰後,香港浸信會聯會延續浸會教派在華百多來醫務傳道的傳統,在1956年建立香港浸信會醫療所,並於1963年將其擴充成為香港浸信會醫院,發展成為今日香港其中一所著名的私營醫院。在籌建的過程中,香港浸信會聯會成功動員教會和教友的跨地域社會網絡,成功取得香港政府、美南浸信會和個別美國浸信會和教友的人力和財政支援。在醫院的營運方面,從建院的宗旨、傳教士的角色、員工的招聘、醫院內的宗教事工,與香港浸信會及其屬下機構的合作關係等,基督教的影響處處可見。

In the post-war Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Baptist Association endeavoured to promote the Christian medical philanthropy. In 1956 it established the Hong Kong Baptist Clinic and in 1963 further expanded to the Hong Kong Baptist Hospital. The foundation of the Hong Kong Baptist Hospital marked the continuation of the tradition of the Baptist missionaries in China to spread the Gospel by means of provision of medical treatment. Its establishment demonstrates the Hong Kong Baptist Association’s success to mobilize transnational Christian resources, obtaining different types of support from the Hong Kong government, the Southern Baptist Convention and the Baptist churches and brethrens overseas. The influence of Christianity can also be seen in the operation of the hospital.
