World's 3rd most beautiful hospital

The winter is here and with the dropping temperature starts the season of cough and cold. We have been visiting the hospital more than usual these days. I really don't know if I go there just to drool over the beautiful hospital or some other reason:)) But what ever the reason you guys are going to get a free tour of The Matilda International hospital which has been ranked world's 3rd most beautiful by HealthExecNews and Asia's most beautiful hospital as well!!!

The first time I went there was when we had just arrived to Hong Kong and had to take the baby for his vaccination. I really didn't know what to expect. It was such a pleasant surprise. 

This is what I saw when I entered the entrance door...

Welcoming feeling with splendid spread of floral pattern created with mosaic tiles ... I love the old world charm.. The original building which is still in use was built in 1907..

 I looked up .... traditional crown molding with lace like pattern..warm lightning of ceiling pendants..All the original work is so well maintained and very well blend into modern functionality.. 

The hallway with the gorgeous flooring, arches, bright and lively..warm and welcoming..Can you believe there is a operating theater in this hallway..

This is the entrance lounge..Looks more like a hotel , right? The center table has fresh flower arrangement.. The whole area is lit by warm lighting. Earthly tones on the wall and the furniture makes it so welcoming . I love the framed photographs on the side table which gives it a homely feeling..

Another corner around the way to the elevator..It is next to a neat aquarium with cute fish inside.. perfect for babies and kids to keep them occupied..

 The hospital has a amazing collection of paintings..All are so beautiful ..mostly of flowers, fall leaves and dandelions...the hallways are decked with huge paintings, collection of old photographs of Hong kong , old oriental style blue pottery vase..

Then there are stained glass paintings, green plants in blue pottery vase...But that's not all..The hospital's architecture and interiors is outstandingly beautiful but so is its location...It is located at " The peak" which is the pinnacle of Hong Kong Island which gives it stunning views...

The breathtaking views of blue mountains, blue sea and the blue sky..You can see breathtaking views of the South China Sea and the many islands in the sea from here!!

Matilda is out of this world! But never saw so much of it. I went there when I was pregnant, and at once regretted not planning to deliver there.

Wow no kidding, that is a beautiful hospital. Feels like a home. Usually people feel stress in hospitals and hopefully this environment makes people feel better.

Matilda international hospital is really worth to visit, was not knowing that the hospital is too well maintained and it does not seem to be like a hospital just look like a home and one can just feel the pleasure of being in home despite of being in hospital.
