Matilda International Hospital Service Development Update in 2018/2019
In 2018, the Matilda International Hospital launched the Paediatric Unit and introduced Community Midwifery services to enhance current services to children and new mothers.
A referral Centre was set up in February 2018, enabling patients to enjoy a one-stop concierge service providing assistance in making specialist consultation bookings, surgery arrangement, insurance handling, transportation and accommodation. This service is particularly useful for those who newly arrived in Hong Kong.
Our standards of care are well recognized by external surveyors from the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards Accreditation, and we were awarded 17 Extensive Achievement (EA) ratings and one highest rating of Outstanding Achievement (OA).
In 2019, we will upgrade the MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) system, develop bundled care packages, and promote ear nose and throat services.

Magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI) System
The upgrade of the MRI comes with metal reduction technology, enabling richer, sharper and higher quality images. It is also equipped with patient friendly features, such as noise reduction, needle-free for some MRI examinations (no need to have contrast injection), and lower table for easier access. Special coils can help position superficial parts of the body for examinations such as shoulder and fingers for better quality pictures. The overall duration for examinations will be shortened for improving overall experience.
We have introduced packages since 1994, and currently have almost 250 surgical packages. As there is a trend for patients or insurers to contain costs with pre-determined packages that include doctors’ fee, we have been taking a step further to develop bundled care packages in some of the services.
For orthopaedic packages, we mainly offer to individual insurance company. For endoscopy, such packages can be used by any of our patients. We shall expand such bundled care in 2019 and beyond.
