About Us

About SingHealth Community Hospitals

SingHealth Community Hospitals (SCH) comprises of Sengkang Community Hospital and Outram Community Hospital. Being Singapore's only cluster of community hospitals allows us to shape the way we deliver person-centred care to patients. 

Our community hospitals are poised to set standards in care, exchange best practices and strengthen collaborations with our healthcare and community partners.

We provide medical, nursing and rehabilitation services, with emphasis on rehabilitation to get the patients well enough to return to the community.

Our Vision

Bridging Care. Building Communities.

Our Mission

We deliver person-centred care to achieve health goals with our patients.


Our Philosophy of Care

Patients at the heart of all we do.png

We share SingHealth's philosophy to put 'Patients. At the Heart of All We Do.'

At SCH, our focus goes beyond healthcare to health. To promote healing, our community hospitals provide a homely environment for patients to recuperate and take part in well-paced personalised care. 

We want our patients to not only recover from their medical conditions but also to return to their family and be supported by a helpful and connected community. Palliative patients will also receive thoughtful, compassionate and dignified care.

SCH is under the SingHealth Regional Health System (RHS) and is supported by the medical expertise and research capabilities of the SingHealth-Duke NUS Academic Medical Centre. 

Beyond Healthcare to Health 

We aim to deliver a seamless and integrated care path for patients requiring sub-acute care, rehabilitation and palliative care

Beyond Hospital to Community

Enhanced patient flow - We will work closely with SGH, SKH and CGH to proactively identify patients suitable for transfer. This collaboration will allow us to facilitate patients' move to or from our community hospitals, simplify referral processes, and extend transfer cut-off time. 

Better post-discharge care and support - To ensure that patients are cared for even after discharge, we will collaborate with community partners through initiatives like joint discharge planning, developing care protocols and a training centre for our partners.
