British Military Hospital Hong Kong Wylie Road Kings Park


History and photographs of British Military Hospital Hong Kong Wylie Road Kings Park:

British Military Hospital Hong Kong Wylie Road Kings Park


BMH Hong Kong on Wylie Road at Kings Park was opened in June 1967 in the New Territories (cited in the book Sub Cruce Candida: A Celebration of One Hundred Years of Army Nursing).

This new BMH Hong Kong building was a huge tower block hospital at 15 storeys high with a storm tunnel linking it to the accommodation tower block which had 12 floors. BMH Hong Kong, Wylie Road, Kings Park replaced BMH Bowen Road Hong Kong and BMH Mount Kellett. To distinguish it from the previous ones it was known as BMH Kings Park by the staff.

British Military Hospital Wylie Road was built near to the public Queen Elizabeth Hospital. The nearest barracks was Gun Club on Gascoigne Road. A further British Army barracks was located further up Wylie Road and was just on the Kowloon side of Boundary Road. North of Boundary Road was the New Territories.

Due to the extreme weather conditions in Hong Kong this British Military Hospital soon showed signs of disrepair. Parts of the BMH had to be closed for safety reasons. For example the balconies on the top floor were deemed to be unsafe and QA's on the children's ward on floor regularly spotted rats while on night shift. Discussions were held about building a smaller MRS in the New Territories but these were dropped when the handover date to China was finalised.

One floor of British Military Hospital Hong Kong Wylie Road was used to film the BBC TV series of The Chinese Detective in 1989. Several episodes of Soldier Soldier were also filmed at the hospital in 1991.

BMH Hong Kong Kings Park was officially closed on the 30 June 1996 when the British Garrison was scaled down due to the 1997 Hong Kong handover to the Chinese Government.

Until 1999 the building was used by the Philippine Consulate-General as a refuge for dismissed domestic workers

The BMH Hong Kong Kings Park building was then demolished and houses were built on the land.
