The Hospital Authority (HA) has appointed Dr Theresa Li as cluster chief executive (Hong Kong West) and hospital chief executive (HCE) of Queen Mary Hospital and Tsan Yuk Hospital, effective from 1 October.

She will succeed Dr Luk Che Chung, who will take up the post of Cluster Chief Executive (Hong Kong East) and HCE of Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, St John Hospital and Wong Chuk Hang Hospital on the same day.

Dr Li is an anaesthesiologist by background. She is currently the head of human resources at the HA Head Office, a position she has held since February 2014.

In her current position, Dr Li has improved the overall governance and management of the training and development function alongside various other staff attraction and retention measures, inter alia, introducing a locum office to facilitate flexible employment; developing a career progression model for supporting staff grades; gauging staff views with a corporation-wide staff survey; and enhancing staff medical benefits such as improving access to private diagnostic imaging services.

Dr Li has also led the modernisation of human resources management through the introduction of technology, such as using mobile apps for staff clinic appointments, leave applications, training and development, and staff welfare promulgation.

Dr Li possesses ample management experience both at the corporate and cluster levels. Prior to her current role she served as cluster manager (strategy, planning and service transformation) in Kowloon Central Cluster and as HCE of Shatin Hospital and Bradbury Hospice.
