The Hospital Authority (HA) is responsible for managing Hong Kong's public hospital services. They provide acute, convalescent, rehabilitation, and community healthcare services through a wide range of facilities.
In 2016, the government of Hong Kong announced the implementation of a 10-year Hospital Development Plan and an investment of HK$200 billion (approximately £20.5 billion). The plan will see the construction of an Acute Hospital, three Community Health Centers, a Supporting Services Center, and the redevelopment of 11 existing hospitals.

Asite is working with two of the hospitals undergoing redevelopment – Grantham Hospital in the Wong Chuk Hang area in Aberdeen and Our Lady of Maryknoll Hospital in the Wong Tai Sin area in New Kowloon.
Led by Rocco Design Architects Associates Ltd, the redevelopment of Grantham Hospital will be carried out in two stages. The first stage will provide an additional oncology center and three operating theatres. A Cancer Centre, an Ambulatory Care Centre, and a Clinical and Translational Research Centre will all be created during phase one of the redevelopment.
The proposed works will create an estimated 50 jobs, including five jobs for laborers and 45 for professional or technical staff.
Designed by Wong & Ouyang (HK) Ltd architects, the redevelopment of Our Lady of Maryknoll Hospital project will construct a new hospital block following the demolition of existing North and East wings. The existing Outpatient Department (OPD) Block will also be refurbishment as part of the plans.
As part of the redevelopment, inpatient care services, ambulatory services, day surgery services, an endoscopy unit, an electrodiagnostic unit, a cardiac diagnostic & care center, and a renal dialysis center will also be improved.
Both projects required a powerful electronic document and information management system. Asite’s cloud-based platform enables full control of all information and elements involved in the project across its lifecycle, from the design and development to delivery and maintenance. The two architect teams were able to easily, efficiently, and securely share project information and save it in an auditable platform freeing up time to dedicate to project delivery.
Upon completion in 2026, the program is set to deliver an additional 5,000 hospital bed spaces, 90 operating theatres, and the capacity for an added 430,000 general outpatient clinic attendances and 2,800,000 specialist outpatient clinic attendances annually.
This 10-year plan is based on a people-first philosophy – working to build space to address the needs of patients and staff and future-proof hospitals and clinics. The work will also build floor plans to enhance the service delivery process and patient flow. The Hospital Authority is committed to providing barrier-free access to facilities as well as embracing a sustainable design concept to protect the environment.
