Executive Management

The executives are charged by the Hospital Authority Board with the responsibility for managing and administering the Authority's day to day business and operations. To ensure that the management can discharge its duties in an effective and efficient manner, the Board has set out certain clear delegated authorities, policies and codes of conduct. The Board also approves an annual plan that is prepared by the executives in accordance with the Board's direction.

Under the powers stipulated in the Hospital Authority Ordinance, the Authority determines the remuneration and terms and conditions of employment for all of its employees. Remuneration packages of executive directors and other senior managers are aimed at attracting, motivating and retaining high-calibre individuals in a competitive international market. With regard to senior executives, each case is considered and endorsed by the Authority Board through its Executive Committee.
