Abstract: The difficulties of coordinating end-user requirements and minimising subsequent changes, with the consequent delays and unforeseen extra costs, have been a feature of hospital procurement. Several successful cases to procure hospitals more quickly and less expensively by using alternative procurement systems are employed in U.K. This paper examines the characteristics and difficulties in running health care projects. By way of a detailed case study, the latest state-of-the-art approach, such as adopting the enhanced design and build system, well-defined project management system, partnering and value management, in managing a health care project in Hong Kong is presented and analysed. It also compares and contrasts the distinctive features of the enhanced design and build system and the pure design and build system.
