If you are looking for a private hospital in Hong Kong, here is a practical guide with essential details to help you choose the right one. While private hospital wait times in Hong Kong are a lot shorter than for HA hospitals (public hospitals), their fees and charges are high and among the most expensive in the world.

The medical private sector in Hong Kong operates as a business. This means private hospitals have an incentive to make money - whether their status is for- or not-for-profit. In exchange, they provide a strong customer-service model and compete on comfort, choice, waiting times and quality of care.
