Notes:

Public health facilities refer to those owned or controlled by a government unit or another public corporation (where control is defined as the ability to determine the general corporate policy).

Not-for-profit health facilities refer to those producing health goods and services, but are not permitted to be a source of income, profit or financial gain for the unit(s) that establish, control or finance them.

Private health facilities refer to those set up for the purpose of producing health goods and services and are capable of generating a profit or other financial gains for their owners.

A residential health facility providing more than one residential care service will be categorised based on its highest level of medical capability (LMC), provided the highest LMC beds make up at least 25 per cent of total bed capacity.

For example, a health facility providing both community hospital and chronic sick services will be categorised as a 'Community Hospital' if its number of community hospital beds is at least 25 per cent of its total bed capacity.

9  Prior to 2019, home palliative care places were computed on a per year basis, i.e. total number of clients who can be served per year.
From 2019 onwards, home palliative care places are computed based on the number of clients who can be served at any one time, so as to align with other non-residential long-term care services.
    From 2020 onward, the number of places computed based on total clients served per year will be discontinued.
