In March 2022, the Hospital Authority (HA) approached HKAH – TW to set up a Holding Center (HC) for COVID-19 patients or recovering patients to alleviate the burden on public hospitals. HKAH – TW responded swiftly and, within two weeks, transformed the Tsuen Wan West Sports Centre into a 24-hour HC from March 28 to May 10, 2022.


A team of 7 doctors and 26 nurses volunteered their holiday time to serve 58 elderly patients (in their 60s). The team also offered emotional and spiritual support by chatting and singing with patients. It was a valuable opportunity to extend Christ’s healing ministry and support the community during Hong Kong’s most challenging time.
