About Us


HKSH community nursing service provides holistic and continuous care and treatments to patients of Hong Kong Sanatorium & Hospital and HKSH Healthcare in their homes. Specialised and qualified nurses will conduct clinical assessments and carry out tailor-made care plans during home visits, allowing patients to receive treatments and recover in their home environment. As for complex cases, community nurses will discuss with and report to designated doctors when appropriate to ensure the best possible care to patients.
