Matilda was first
I refer to the story headlined 'Henderson cleared for hospital-site plan' (South China Morning Post Business, June 7), which requires clarification.
The manager of Union Hospital, Anthony Lee Kai-yiu, was quoted as saying his facility was 'the only private hospital to have secured accreditation from third parties, such as ISO 9002 certification'.
The Matilda Hospital was the first private hospital in Hong Kong to obtain ISO 9002 accreditation, on June 23, 1999, and also the first hospital to obtain Trent clinical accreditation from the United Kingdom.
