This photo was taken in the early 80's in the old ICU which has now become a surgical ward. Left to right: Dr Fanny CHENG, Mr. Andrew YEUNG (who is now the General Manager (Nursing) of Caritas Medical Centre).
In the seventies, there were no intensive care beds in QEH. At that time, Medical C Consultant in-charge, Dr WI Pau, a cardiologist, had the vision that provision of intensive care to critically ill patients is a must in an acute hospital. He did a lot of work before final approval from the Medical & Health Department to develop ICU beds in QEH.
