Way Forward

Moving in Strides under HKSH Medical Group
To sustain our leading role in the pursuit of service excellence, a series of reorganization has taken place over the past few years including most notably the formation of HKSH Medical Group in mid-2015 and the expansion of our community network through HKSH Healthcare.

Way Forward

Happy Valley Phase 4 Redevelopment
Following Town Planning Board’s approval in 2012, preparation work is underway for Phase 4 redevelopment at Happy Valley. Meticulous attention is paid to the planning stage to minimise any potential disturbance to the neighbourhood and ongoing hospital operations.

Way Forward

Community Network
HKSH will continue to expand and enhance services from a single-site-based hospital into a multi-site, multi-faceted, comprehensive and integrated healthcare delivery system in the years to come. The opening of the flagship specialty centre in Admiralty in September 2016 is one of the fine examples. The launch of Community Nursing Services in May 2017 represents another strategic move by HKSH to improve continuity of care for patients discharged from the Hospital or cannot conveniently seek medical attention at a healthcare service provider.

Way Forward

A Kung Ngam
Construction works are moving full-speed ahead at A Kung Ngam to build the HKSH Eastern District Advanced Medical Centre. To be launched in phases over the next 5 years, the HKSH Eastern District Advanced Medical Centre will be a one-of-a-kind cancer care facility that provides a comprehensive range of diagnostic, therapeutic and support cancer services, bringing hope to patients in Hong Kong and broader region.

Project 100
Training and equipping our future healthcare leaders with knowledge and skills is a top priority at the Hospital. As such, we have embarked on a training programme known as “Project 100” to provide on-the-job training to nurses and allied health professionals. Project 100 is partly funded by Lady Lau Ip Sok Wun Memorial Scholarship set up in 2016. So far, more than 100 staff members have benefitted from training via overseas attachments to not only enhance their knowledge base and expertise but also introduce best practices from abroad to the Hospital. The strength and depth of an organization depend on its constituents and Project 100 was precisely conceived and implemented to continue to inspire our leaders of tomorrow.
