Many aspects of Hong Kong Adventist Hospital are considerably different from other hospitals. The "round" shape certainly is unique for a hospital in Hong Kong. In addition, the hospital has endeavored to provide a more home-like setting for its healthcare services, and currently has 105 beds with future plans of expansion to 150 beds. However, what particularly sets the hospital apart is its promotion of preventive medicine through healthful living.
Hong Kong Adventist Hospital is a well established, non-profit institution and does not request government subsidy, nor aid from the Community Chest. It is owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church organization, and it is part of the network known as Adventist Health Services Asia. All revenues come from patients services. Revenues in excess of expenses are reinvested into the hospital for updating equipment and facilities, or to expand into new services. Many new technologies and pieces of equipment have been made possible by the generous financial support of the many friends of the hospital in Hong Kong and other countries.
