Renowned for its high standards and professionalism as well as its up-to-date medical technology and equipment, Hong Kong’s health care sector is able to provide the public with quality medical services, and has potential for further advancement.
The Government has reserved four sites at Wong Chuk Hang, Tseung Kwan O, Tai Po and Lantau for the development of private hospitals. We are formulating the land disposal arrangements for these sites, and plan to tender out the two sites at Wong Chuk Hang and Tai Po in the first quarter of 2012. To ensure that services offered by new hospitals meet the needs of the public, future private hospitals will be subject to relevant development parameters covering the scope of services such as the types of specialty. The standard of services, such as the number of beds, hospital accreditation and pricing transparency, will also be specified.
