Dr. Tan See Leng
Managing Director and
Chief Executive Officer
2017 marked a year of continued
growth for the Group across most of
our markets. In line with our vision of
becoming a leading global healthcare
player, we seized opportunities
throughout the year to grow both
organically and inorganically.
We are proud to announce the opening of Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital in March, a major milestone in our journey to making Greater China our fifth home market. A 500-bed multi-speciality private tertiary hospital, Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital boasts cutting-edge medical technologies, providing a comprehensive range of clinical services. Located at Wong Chuk Hang on Hong Kong Island South, Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital represents IHH's single largest hospital investment since the opening of Mount Elizabeth Novena in Singapore in 2012. Already, it is ramping up and taking on increasingly complex medical treatments.
Hong Kong's population continues to age quickly with one in every three people expected to be older than 65 in 2066, as reported by the Hong Kong government's recent statistics on its population. Consequently, this has led to a rising demand for private healthcare services, which presents tremendous potential for Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital. In fact, it is on the request from the authorities that we opened all 500 beds at once instead of our usual phased approach of opening new beds in new hospitals. By doing so, we hope to alleviate the strain in the public hospitals.
