The Food and Health Bureau of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region recently published an invitation for expressions of interest for the development of private hospitals in Hong Kong. A copy of the invitation is attached.

According to the invitation, the Hong Kong Government is considering making available four sites in Hong Kong for the development of hospitals and is seeking "information, ideas and suggestions" from interested parties.

The Government may consider structuring the developments on a "PPP" basis by which the Government may provide land for proponents to finance, design, construct and operate the hospitals for a specified concession period.

Other development structures may also be considered by the Government.

JSM has acted on numerous PPP style projects in Hong Kong over the years and has well established relationships with the medical and health regulatory authorities in Hong Kong.
