Local ties to HK hospital

LOCAL patients now can visit Hong Kong Adventist Hospital for high-quality medical care and efficient service through a "green" passage.

The hospital has established a strategic alliance with Global HealthCare (GHC) Medical Center in Shanghai, allowing local patients to be treated by Hong Kong doctors who fly to Shanghai regularly. They also can go to the Adventist Hospital in Hong Kong for major surgery.

"Shanghai is same as Hong Kong, an international city with many expatriates and returning overseas Chinese," said Frank Yeung, CEO of Hong Kong Adventist Hospital and Tsuen Wan Adventist Hospital.

"While furthering communication and cooperation with medical institutions and professionals on the Chinese mainland, we will take more steps to get better involved in the medical market in Shanghai after the trial with GHC runs smoothly."

Hong Kong Adventist Hospital is an international hospital following international practices and developing with an international viewpoint.

All staff are fluent in English and many doctors studied in the United States and Europe. The hospital has been recognized for meeting many international medical standards.

Hong Kong Adventist Hospital is subject to international health care accreditation and for many years it has been surveyed and accredited by the UK's Trent Accreditation Scheme.

In 2006 it has also been assessed by the Joint Commission International in the United States. It is now applying to the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards, said Yeung.

Hong Kong Adventist Hospital on Hong Kong Island is a private institution operating without government subsidy. It is a part of the Adventist Health Global Network, which has more than 360 medical institutions worldwide.

It provides a wide range of services and specializes in tumor treatment and heart surgery. "We have been receiving an increasing number of Shanghainese and people from other parts of the mainland in recent years," Yeung said. They account for 3-5 percent of patients and usually seek heart surgery and cancer treatment.

Yeung said Hong Kong Adventist is the first hospital in Asia to introduce a world-leading advanced CyberKnife, which can work on all kinds of cancer while following the movements of organs like the lungs. The therapy produces good results and little injury, he said.

With the support of the advanced equipments and state-of-the-art technology, Hong Kong Heart Center at Hong Kong Adventist Hospital is capable to provide a one-stop service of diagnosis, treatment, surgery and rehabilitation.

Yeung said the hospital is warm and friendly. "We don't call patients by their bed numbers but their names," he said. "We use check-in and check-out - not formal hospitalization registration - to relax our patients."
