CUHK Medical Centre and Hong Kong Baptist Hospital signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) today (19 June) under which Hong Kong Baptist Hospital School of Nursing will train up enrolled nurses for CUHK Medical Centre.  The MOU will last for a period of 5 years, with a quota of 20 students per year.  Graduates will be employed by CUHK Medical Centre. 

 

Dr. Fung Hong, Executive Director of CUHK Medical Centre said, "In the healthcare team, nurses are integral to ensuring a positive patient experience and quality service outcome.  Through the 5-year collaboration, CUHK Medical Centre will have 100 nurse graduates from Hong Kong Baptist Hospital’s accredited training programme.  This is an important strategy for us to ensure a stable supply of qualified nurses, and to build up a solid foundation for future collaboration among private hospitals, with the aim of providing better healthcare service to the citizens of Hong Kong.” 

 

Dr. Alex Yu, Chief Executive Officer of Hong Kong Baptist Hospital said, “Since its establishment in 1983, Hong Kong Baptist Hospital School of Nursing has embraced the spirit of Christ in developing professional nurses with good character, knowledge and skills who are driven by a vocational calling to deliver safe, holistic, managed, and ethical care to patients. This collaboration with CUHK Medical Centre is not only a recognition of our School of Nursing, it also serves towards achieving our mission of enhancing quality healthcare in Hong Kong.”
