History[edit]

Bradbury Hospice was found by the Society for the Promotion of Hospice Care and is the first independent hospice in Hong Kong. It was started building in 1990 on land in Sha Tin granted by the Government of Hong Kong, and was named after the Bradbury Charitable Trust, which donated HK$24 million to the building of the hospice. Other principal donors include the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club and the Keswick Foundation. The 26-bed hospice started its operations in June 1992 and was officially opened on 7 November 1992 by Charles, Prince of Wales.[1][2][3]

On 1 April 1995, the management of the hospice was transferred to the Hospital Authority.[4]
