Penang Adventist Hospital
(23 January 2005)
The Penang Adventist Hospital
(GPS: 5.43282, 100.30526), or Hospital Adventist Pulau Pinang
, is a not-for-profit hospital founded in 1924 by Dr Earl Gardner. It is located at 465, Burmah Road, 10350 Penang.
The history of the Penang Adventist Hospital hospital goes back to 12
December, 1924, when it first opened at 108 Muntri Street
). At that time, it was called the Seventh-Day Adventist Mission Clinic
. As it offered free treatment to the poor, the clinic was rarely ever empty.
The Muntri Street premises proved too cram, and so a more ambitious plan way laid out to construct a sanitorium and hospital in Burmah Road (Jalan Burma). This came into being, in the form of the Penang Sanitorium and Hospital
, completed in late 1931, and receiving its first patients in early 1932. With the opening of the hospital, the Muntri Street clinic relocated to 511 Chulia Street (Lebuh Chulia) in 1932 and then again to 422 Chulia Street in 1939.

With World War II, Malaya fell to the Japanese. Six months into Japanese Occupation, the Penang Sanitorium and Hospital was taken over by the occupying forces and renamed the Love Hospital
. During the war period, the left wing of the hospital was completed, and was called the "Japanese Wing".
After the war was over, the hospital was renamed Penang Mission Hospital
, and then later on reverted to its original name, Penang Sanitorium and Hospital, or Rumah Sakit Peranginan dan Rumah Sakit Pulau Pinang
The right wing of the hospital - nowadays known as the Old Wing - was completed in 1958, a year after Malaya's independence. It enabled the hospital to provide premium services to paying customers for first-class wards.
Some time in the late 60's, it changed its name to Rumah Sakit Advent, or Penang Adventist Hospital. This was done to streamline the names of over four hundred Adventist hospitals and clinics worldwide.
The Penang Adventist Hospital expanded again in the late 1990 with the completion of a new five-storey annex housing a five-theatre operating suite, ten Intensive Care units, maternity suites and other tertiary medical facilities. The number of beds almost doubled, from 120 to 212.
Seventh-Day Adventist worship services are conducted at the hospital on Saturdays at 9:00 am at the Auditorium, Adventist College of Nursing. The services are in Malay as well as in English.
