The Accident & Emergency (A&E) Department is the only A&E centre in Hong Kong West Cluster. It provides 24-hour emergency service to the residents of Hong Kong West and Central as well as the Southern District of the Island.

The department has been renovated to provide an enlarged waiting area and a main area with a 2-bed acute care area, a 2-bed resuscitation room with ceiling mounted X-ray machine, 8 treatment cubicles, a walk-in clinic and an observation and treatment area and an Emergency Medicine ward. Other facilities include 2 X-ray rooms, designated rooms for minor operation, plastering and dressing.

To ensure that all patients with urgent and life-threatening conditions receive prompt treatment, a triage system is in place to assess the clinical conditions of the patients. Based on objective assessment criteria, patients are prioritized into 5 categories: Critical, Emergency, Urgent, Semi-urgent and Non-urgent and will receive treatment according to clinical needs.
