‘Happy Birthday, Hospital Authority!’
Over the past 25 years, HA has earned the admiration of public healthcare providers around the world for its high standards of service and the professionalism of its staff. To help celebrate the Authority’s silver jubilee, eight colleagues from Princess Margaret Hospital and Kwai Chung Hospital, grace the cover of this month’s issue with their smiling faces. Looking ahead to the next 25 years and beyond, HA Chairman Professor John Leong shares his views on how HA will drive forward with innovative initiatives to keep pace with the evolving healthcare needs of Hong Kong now and in the future.
We also showcase a series of historical photos depicting HA’s development over the years, and feature the stories of several colleagues who have worked for the Authority for 25 years or are 25 years old themselves!
The annual HA New Year Run will be held on 14 February. A short article 'Check in for fun at HA New Year Run' highlights some of the non-racing fun to be had at the event for participants to celebrate also the romantic Valentine’s Day.
Last but not least, HASLink would like to wish you and your loved ones great happiness and good health in the Year of the Monkey!
