“The Chinese Hospital is the kind of institution I want to support the most. It has an excellent tradition of caring for the local community, especially those less privileged groups. Education and Healthcare have always been the top priorities of my Foundation. This is also why, after making significant donations to my two alma maters in the UK and China, I chose the Chinese Hospital as the recipient of my first charitable donation in the US,” said Dr. Huang. “Throughout the pandemic, we have witnessed anti-Asian, particularly anti-Chinese sentiment in American society. I hope that my donation can also show the American society that Asian Americans, in particular Chinese Americans, do care about our communities and give back to our communities in order to make our communities better and stronger.”
The donation will fund redevelopment of the hospital outpatient tower infrastructure and creation of innovative programs that meet the healthcare needs of the Community. The renovated building will be named as the “Charles Huang Foundation Outpatient Tower.” and provide additional capacity and services, including new subacute care beds and surgical suites, laboratory and administrative improvements, and mental health programs and nutrition services.
Dr. Jian Zhang, CEO of Chinese Hospital, said, “We’re grateful to Dr. Huang for this generous gift which will allow us to expand much-needed services for our local community.” Mr. Kitman Chan, chairman of Chinese Hospital’s Board of Trustees, added, “This remarkable gift will enable the expansion of outstanding healthcare services San Franciscans need.“
