The Hospital Authority is a Hong Kong statutory body established under the Hospital Authority Ordinance in 1990. It is responsible for managing Hong Kong’s public hospitals and their services to the community since December 1991. The Foundation contributes to numerous health and wellbeing fundraising events, the most recent being the Hospital Authority New Year Run.
The Yvonne L. K. Lui Foundation received the Diamond Award from Professor John Leong for its contribution to Hong Kong’s pre-eminent healthcare body. An important organisation to support, the Hospital Authority has a workforce of around 67,000 people, managing 42 hospitals and institutions, 48 Specialist Out-patient Clinics (SOPCs), and 73 General Out-patient Clinics (GOPCs). Between them, they provide 27,440 beds, or about 4 beds for every 1,000 members of the public.
