Peter Ho's philosophy of life transcended his physical existence. His kindness and charity to his fellow man was expressed in many ways. In one instance, he took a struggling, failing medical student into his home and fed and tutored this student to a successful graduation, not only because he had faith in this student, but, because he had faith in all mankind. His attitude towards money was that it should be used to help those in need.

We at Saint Michael’s Medical Center, in tribute to this caring, unselfish, truly altruistic man, have instituted a clinic in his name, the Peter Ho Memorial Clinic, in order that we too, may try and carry on his legacy work in Medicine and to perpetuate his philosophy of love and help to mankind.
