Haven of Hope Hospital (HHH) was established in 1955 and is one of the three hospitals in the Kowloon East Cluster (KEC) of the Hospital Authority, it mainly provides healthcare services for the residents in Kwun Tong and Sai Kung (including Tseung Kwan O) districts. HHH specialises in geriatric, pulmonary and palliative services, and is the key provider of sub-acute, convalescent, rehabilitation and infirmary services in KEC.

The existing infirmary wards at HHH are accommodated in three hospital buildings, namely the Grace Ward, Blessing Ward and Harmony Ward. These buildings, built in the 1950s, were renovated in 1998. After 18 years of use, the physical conditions of these buildings have become dilapidated. The facilities therein are outdated and cannot cope with the modern service requirements.

In line with the commitment in the 2013 Policy Address to strengthen longer-term and rehabilitation services for elderly people suffering from chronic diseases, the expansion of HHH will help to provide 160 additional extended care beds. The clinical, supporting and ancillary facilities will also be expanded to support additional inpatient care services. The 116 infirmary beds at the existing three aged hospital buildings will be re-provisioned to the new block, and there will be two link bridges between the new block and the existing main block.

  • Demolition of the three existing hospital buildings which accommodate all infirmary wards at HHH.
  • Construction of two pedestrian link bridges between the new hospital block and the existing main block.
