Hong Kong hospital builds healthcare with mainland China

HKU-SZ Hospital is seeking to improve Hong Kong’s healthcare services in the wider Greater Bay Area.

Hong Kong is improving cross-border healthcare with the Chinese mainland, particularly in the key area between Shenzhen and Hong Kong.

More services will be offered to address the medical needs of Hong Kong residents living in mainland cities of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, in a bid to foster a better, high-quality lifestyle for them.

The programme to enable eligible elderly folk from Hong Kong who are living in the Greater Bay Area to use healthcare vouchers to pay for outpatient service fees from the HKU-SZ Hospital will be extended to more clinics in various cities of the area. The vouchers may also be used in the future to settle payments of the mainland’s medical insurance premiums.

There will be new hospitals especially organised and managed by Hong Kong providers located in the region, to deliver medical services similar to those of Hong Kong for SAR residents living on the mainland.

HKU-SZ Hospital has become a pioneer in medical integration in the Greater Bay Area, and has been selected as a National High-Quality Development Hospital.
