Intensive Care Unit

About Us

The Intensive Care Unit was first established in 1978 and is one of the first few private hospital-based units dedicated to the provision of intensive care in Hong Kong. Our nurses are trained both in knowledge and practical skill for ICU duties. We maintain good communication with attending physicians and take meticulous care of critically ill patients to speed up their recovery.

Coping with a critical illness in a loved one is far from easy. Besides looking after the patients' medical and emotional needs, we will do our best to help their family members sail through this difficult time.

Facilities
  • A total of 12 beds (i.e. a suite, 2 private rooms and 9 semi-private beds).
  • Each private room is equipped with local, Now TV & Satellite TV Channels, telephone, refrigerator, sofa bed for a family member’s overnight stay, and a common sitting room.
  • A common sitting area with telephone is provided for other visitors.
