Loma Linda University Health Remembers Sir Run Run Shaw as a Philanthropist and Humanitarian in the World of Health Care
Date:1/10/2014

vice president for global outreach, Loma Linda University Adventist Health Sciences Center.

When Sir Run Run Shaw initiated plans to build a hospital, he asked the Seventh-day Adventist Church and Loma Linda University and Medical Center to become involved in the process.

Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital officially opened on May 9, 1994 as a 400-bed facility providing Western-style services in all of the medical specialties practiced in the United States. The hospital received Joint Commission International Accreditation in December 2006, making it the first in China to achieve this level of recognition and success; it was subsequently reaccredited in 2009 and 2013. Today the 1,200-bed tertiary care hospital treats more than 6,000 patients per day.

Jan Zumwalt, MBA, MS, associate director, Global Health Institute and executive director for international affairs, LLUMC, was on-site at Sir Run Run Shaw Hospital one January when its namesake visited.

Of his visit, she remembers: "He didn't desire fanfare or attention. He had been born in the province where the hospital is located; the area was very poor at the time the hospital was built.

"He visited the outpatient area and when asked if he wanted to visit the VIP clinic, he said ‘Yes, I want to see more."' Zumwalt remembers his interest in the facility that he had been instrumental in establishing. "He was impressed," she says, "at what he experienced during his visit."

He made his fortune by selling martial arts movies through Shaw Brothers film studio. In later life, he earned widespread respect as a philanthropist. In 2002 he created the Shaw Prize, which is recognized as the Nobel Prize of Asia. In 1977, Queen Elizabeth II knighted him for his longstanding support of the Red Cross.

In addition to the hospital, Sir Run Run Shaw generously provided financial support to numerous other organizations in Asia and the United Sta
