The arms were officially granted on March 30, 1967.

The Rod of Aesculapius, an emblem of the medical arts since classical times, lies between heraldic sun and star to denote the hospital's care and service by day and by night; day and night are re-echoed in the blue and gold colours. In the Crest, a hand grasps a buckle, as an ancient token of faithful service.
