The Hospital Authority (traditional Chinese: 醫院管理局) is a statutory body managing all the public hospitals and institutes in Hong Kong. It is managed by the Hospital Authority Board and is under the monitor of the Secretary for Health, Welfare and Food of the HKSAR Government. Its current Chief Executive is Australian Shane Solomon who was previously the Executive Director of the Metropolitan Health and Aged Care Services in Victoria.
Before the establishment of the authority, all health and medical issues were under the management of the Medical and Health Department. In 1990, a new health administration system was introduced. The department became the Department of Health and in 1991, the management of all the public hospitals was passed to a new statutory body, the Hospital Authority, which was established in 1990 under the Hospital Authority Ordinance. In 2003, the General Outpatient Clinics of Department of Health were transferred to the Authority.
