Ms. Kong Mei Sum (Formerly served as Clerk for the Pharmacy and the Supplies Department, joined Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital in 1971)
"The Pharmacy was situated on the ground floor of Li Shu Fan Block in the 70s. Every time when there were heavy rainfalls, there were possibilities that the Pharmacy would turn into a 'pool', with many slippers floating around. To me, this experience is really unforgettable and comical!"
Mr. Wong Ka Hung (Currently serve as Dispenser I, joined Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital since 1975)
"There was once Dr. Li Shu Pui, the former Medical Superintendent of the Hospital, saw my colleagues and I playing bridge after work in the Pharmacy. Without giving us a lesson, Dr. Li smiled and left. Later our Supervisor advised us not to play any card games in the Hospital premises. Instead of blaming, Dr. Li chose to guide and led us onto the right path."
Ms. Wong Yau Lan (Formerly served as Accounting Officer, joined Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital in 1973)
"Before the first air conditioning system was introduced in the Hospital, most wards and rooms used ceiling fans for ventilation; only staff in the Accounts Department placed desk fans on the floor, fearing that the invoices and receipts would be blown away!"
Ms. Chiu Sau Ching, Sarah (Currently serve as Accounting Officer, joined Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital since 1980)
"When I first joined HKSH, I couldn’t tell why I could hardly recognize the face of the colleague sitting opposite to me, until one day I realized that the seat was actually assigned to two different groups of staff. In the morning it was for the billing team and in the afternoon for those handling the account payable. As most of us worked on rotating shifts, we could always see many different faces in the same office. That was my first impression of 'Job Rotation'."
"In the old days my colleagues and I usually dined at the Staff Canteen as our lunch break lasted only 30 minutes. I still remember that the lunch vouchers were sold 1 to 3 days in advance and the daily menu was fixed unlike today which we can choose from a wide variety. If we requested for a greater portion, the staff on duty would show us the 'Sample dish' telling us that the serving size was recommended by in-house dietitian. No wonder I am still as fit as I first joined the hospital!"
Ms. Lily Cho (Currently serve as Head of the Department of Corporate Affairs, joined Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital since 1983)
"Many years ago there was a lychee tree in the hospital, when it came to harvest in summer, you could always see clusters of rosy-colored fruits on the tree. I was one of the lucky ones who have tasted the luscious fruits right off the tree."
