Public Private Partnership


The Power of Public-Private Partnerships

As one of the largest private healthcare providers in Hong Kong, Quality HealthCare has been committed to supporting the Government’s policy through various public-private partnership programs, which alleviate burden on the public healthcare system by offering quality medical services to the public.

In view of the challenges faced by the public health system, the Hong Kong government has been actively promoting public-private partnerships (PPP) over the past decade. Quality HealthCare published a report which looks at what makes an effective PPP, reviews Hong Kong’s experience with PPP programmes, and outlines recommendations for two new PPPs - Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and Common Mental Disorders (CMD), which will potentially help to save billions in hospital acute care costs by 2037.
