Since its establishment, Tung Wah College (TWC) has been supported in various aspects by the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals (TWGHs). The TWGHs Board of Directors 2020/2021 has recently donated HK$1.03 million to TWC for the purchase of a high-fidelity Human Patient Simulator (HPS) to be used at Health Care Laboratory, in order to further enhance the College’s teaching facilities and learning effectiveness for better development of nursing programmes.
The Acknowledgment Ceremony was held on 10 March 2021 at the Health Care Laboratory at Ma Kam Chan Memorial Building in recognition of the generous donation made by the TWGHs Board of Directors 2020/2021. The momentous ceremony was attended by honourable guests, namely Ms. Ginny Man, Chairman of TWGHs Board of Directors 2020/2021 cum Chairman of Board of Governors of TWC; Mrs. Viola Chan Man Yee-wai, BBS, Chairman of College Council of TWC; Members of TWGHs Board of Directors 2020/2021 and Professor Sally Chan, President of TWC, etc.
Professor Chan expressed heartfelt gratitude to the support of the TWGHs Board of Directors 2020/2021 to the College, with special thanks to Ms. Ginny Man, the outgoing Chairman of Board of Governors of TWC, for her leadership in the past four years, during which remarkable achievements were made by the College, including but not limited to the launches of Physiotherapy and Social and Business Sustainability programmes, commencement of operation of the Kwai Hing Campus, attainment of first Programme Area Accreditation status, all laying a solid foundation for the College’s future development.
Professor Chan remarked, “apart from gaining recognition from the society with our professional programmes, the College spares no effort in raising funds to upgrade facilities for further enhancement of teaching standards. We are deeply grateful to the over one million donation generously made by the TWGHs Board of Directors 2020/2021 in supporting the purchase of the Patient Simulator. It is an integral part of nursing education at TWC as it provides simulated clinical experiences for training students to meet healthcare needs of different patients in real life settings.”
In the last decade, TWC has nurtured more than 2,000 nurses and played a significant role in training health care professionals. With the donation of TWGHs, there are currently four high-fidelity HPSs for students to learn in simulated hospital setting, so that they are able to learn to response to different scenarios, gaining more practical experience and clinical capability.
