Prior to your admission, it is important that you understand the cost of your hospital stay and the payment policies. Your hospital bill will be made up of the hospital’s fee and the doctor’s fee, these will vary according to the selected room category.
Hospital fees and packages
Hospital fees are charged as packaged or non-packaged. A range of packages is offered at pre-determined prices to cover the most frequently performed procedures. You will be automatically enrolled onto a hospital package if one is available for your procedure. Once a package has commenced, it cannot be downgraded. However, if upgraded, the entire package, including the doctors’ fees will be charged at the higher rate. There is no refund on packages for early discharge.
There are two types of packages available:
Hospital Fee Packages
These packages are offered at pre-determined prices. Overnight packages include nursing care, room (meals included) and treatment normally associated with the procedure, as stated within the package. Day case packages also include nursing care, procedure and room fee (meals excluded) as stated in the procedure.
These packages do not include doctor’s fee.
Additional notes on Maternity Packages
The maternity package commences on the day your baby is born. If you are admitted for a normal vaginal delivery there is no additional room charge for the delivery suite the night before your baby is born (the use of a separate patient room will incur charges). If you are admitted for an induction of labour there is a specific package rate for this which includes accommodation. For multiple pregnancies 30% of the package charge is added for each additional baby.
Total Care Packages
These packages are inclusive of both the hospital’s and doctor’s fee, allowing better cost management for your hospital stay. The packages include nursing care, room (meals included for overnight packages ) and treatment normally associated with the procedure, as stated within the package.
You can find a list of available total care packages here.
All doctors are private practitioners practising independently of the hospital and its administration. Doctors’ fees may vary from one doctor to another and they usually charge according to your room category. This pricing structure is common in Hong Kong and does not affect the level of care provided to you. It is in your best interest to discuss the expected charges with your doctors ahead of time. The hospital only collects doctors’ fees on their behalf.
Room category and charges
Room choices include, VIP Rooms, Private Rooms, Twin Rooms and Standard Rooms, subject to availability. Click here to take look at the rooms.
A private room refers to any category of room with single occupancy. Rooms are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis (or for Maternity patients, first-delivered-first-served basis). If the preferred type of room is unavailable at the time of admission, you will be offered other room options.
All ancillary charges (e.g. drugs & consumables, laboratory tests, X-ray and procedures etc) and doctors’ fees vary according to the room category. For overnight packaged procedures patient meals are included. For other procedures, meals will be charged according to the food items ordered.
Once admitted for a non-packaged procedure, should you wish to change your room category, 48 hours' notice is required.
Isolation rooms are allocated on written instruction from the doctor for clinical indications or if required by the hospital’s infection control policy. This will result in additional accommodation charges or medical fees.
One lodger may stay with paediatric patients in all types of rooms without additional charge. For adult patients, lodging is only available in private rooms.
All meals for lodgers will be charged according to the items ordered.
Important Payment Information
A deposit is required upon admission. A minimum of HK$20,000 or 50% of the estimate total charges, whichever is higher. The hospital reserves its right to take 100% deposit in advance of admission. If you are entitled to any special rates you must inform us on admission to avoid billing errors.
If your stay is covered by insurance with a Guarantee of Payment, you should ensure the GOP is in place for your admission. For details on insurance information, please click here.
Emergency surgery will take priority over elective surgery. Therefore, we cannot guarantee an exact operating time.

Interim bills will be issued every 5 days and should be settled within 2 days of the bill issuance. All accounts must be settled before discharge or payment arrangement guaranteed by insurance companies. The hospital accepts payment by EPS, credit card (Visa Card, Master Card, American Express, China Union Pay), Alipay or cash in Hong Kong dollars.
If your doctor places a late pharmacy order at the end of your stay this may lead to a delay in billing on discharge.
Should you require a copy of your medical notes, a fee will be charged and five working days are required to process this from the day payment is received.
Whilst changes in price are not expected, amendments may be made without prior notice, therefore it is advisable to check the package price and contents before admission.
