Lam Wah Ee Hospital (14 April 2009)


Lam Wah Ee Hospital (GPS: 5.3925, 100.30536) is a major hospital in Penang. It is located at 141 Jalan Tan Sri Teh Ewe Lim (Batu Lanchang Road) (formerly Batu Lanchang Road), in the Green Lane area. It is noted for being a major practitioner of Chinese medicine in the region.

The idea of setting up a hospital was first raised by leaders of the Chinese community in Penang in 1876. From that idea, a fund-raising campaign was launched, which enabled the trustees to erect the first Lam Wah Ee Hospital building. The building, in traditional style, was located at 36 Muntri Street in 1883.

For decades, Muntri Street became known as "Lam Wah Ee Kay" or "Lam Wah Ee Hospital Street". The medical services were in such high demand that the hospital had to set up two branches, one at Beach Street and another at Magazine Road.

The original Lam Wah Ee Hospital building was destroyed during the Second World War. It was rebuilt in early modern style in 1955, and was used until the hospital moved to the land on Green Lane. The present site in Batu Lanchang was donated by the British East India Company to Lam Wah Ee Hospital much earlier. Since then, the hospital has expanded several times. The latest addition to the hospital complex is a 8-storey block. In keeping with times, Lam Wah Ee Hospital is equiped with WiFi, allowing for wireless broadband Internet access within its premises.
