In 1863, Tung Wah Dispensary opened its doors at 828 Sacramento St. in San Francisco's Chinatown, the first hospital established
by the Chinese since arriving in Calif. in 1848. In 1923, funds were raised from the Chinese community and a lot on Jackson
St. was purchased; by the end of 1924, construction was completed and the first Board of Directors was formed.
