Caring for our community's health

The Hospital Authority is a statutory body established under the Hospital Authority Ordinance in 1990. We have been responsible for managing Hong Kong's public hospitals services since December 1991. We are accountable to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region Government through the Secretary for Food and Health, who formulates overall health policies for Hong Kong.

We manage 43 hospitals and institutions, 48 Specialist Out-patient Clinics (SOPCs), and 73 General Out-patient Clinics (GOPCs). As of 31 March 2018, we have a workforce of about 76,000 and some 28,000 beds.

Putting people first

The Hospital Authority is a “people-first” organisation. Our work is guided by our Vision, Mission, and Values. With the vision of helping people stay healthy, we contribute towards the fulfillment of the Hong Kong SAR Government’s policy “no one should be prevented, through lack of means, from obtaining adequate medical treatment”. To achieve this, we ensure that all members of the community have access to comprehensive, affordable, highly professional and people-centred preventative, curative and rehabilitation healthcare services.
