HKBU selected to operate flagship Chinese Medicine Hospital

HKBU was selected by the Government as the contractor for the service deed of Hong Kong’s first Chinese Medicine Hospital (CMH) which will be located in Tseung Kwan O. Its construction is expected to complete in 2025 with service to commence in the second quarter of the year. HKBU will proactively take forward the planning and preparatory works related to the commencement of service of the CMH immediately in accordance with the service deed, and in line with the Government’s efforts to promote the development of Chinese medicine. 


The new hospital will enable more comprehensive disease prevention strategies and treatments for the public. In the future, the CMH will establish six major specialist areas, including internal medicine, external medicine, gynaecology, paediatrics, acupuncture and moxibustion as well as orthopaedics and traumatology, and numerous centres for special diseases will be set up.


On the training of Chinese medicine talent, the CMH will become a practicum base for Chinese medicine and pharmacy students from universities and other training bodies in Hong Kong.


Moreover, the CMH's clinical trials facilities will facilitate research and the development of more effective Chinese medicine drugs and therapies, enhance Hong Kong's standards in Chinese medicine clinical research, and thus improve the competitiveness of Hong Kong's Chinese medicine pharmaceutical products regionally and even internationally.


The CMH will also facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration in different areas. This will include Chinese medicine collaborations in the Greater Bay Area, and among the Belt and Road countries and the global community; collaborations between Chinese medicine and the professional disciplines of Western medicine, nursing and physiotherapy to enhance disease prevention and treatment standards; and the strengthening of collaborations between the Government, industry, academia and research bodies to expedite knowledge transfer.
