Tsan Yuk Hospital was initially a maternity hospital. The obstetrics inpatient service was relocated to Queen Mary Hospital in November 2001. Tsan Yuk Hospital is now a hospital for outpatient and ambulatory care.

Postgraduate courses in new techniques and recent trends in Obstetrics and Gynaecology are held regularly for private practitioners and the resident staff of consultant units from the whole of Hong Kong. The Department is active in both clinical and laboratory research.
