In this last instalment of a six-parter series on the SingHealth key priorities, we look at how infrastructure development is coordinated for person-centred care and a seamless care experience.
Read how the SGH Campus is set to transform in the next 15 to 20 years into a healthcare ecosystem with SGH as the hub, surrounded by acute, secondary care facilities and our national centres of excellence. Adding to the tapestry are cutting edge research and education facilities which will revolutionise and advance medical care.
SGH Campus Masterplan: Bringing the Vision to Life
The journey has already started with Academia and the National Heart Centre Singapore’s new building. Here is a sneak peek at what is to come:
1) Diabetes & Metabolism Centre
One-stop centre offering co-ordinated care and facilities for patients with diabetes and metabolic conditions. Self-registration kiosks and centralised payment counters to reduce lengthy queues and waiting time
2) SGH Interim Accident and Emergency (A&E) & Campus Utilities Plant (CUP)
Expanded A&E capacity to cater to expected patient demand.
3) Outram Community Hospital – Connecting Care to the Community
Designed with patient rehabilitation in mind to allow for quicker recovery and a faster return to the community.
4) New National Cancer Centre Singapore
A new building set to offer Southeast Asia’s first Proton Beam Therapy Facility with medical, educational and research activities within a single institution; multi-disciplinary approach to cancer diagnosis and treatment.
5) New SGH
Phase 1 will comprise an Elective Care Centre and new National Dental Centre Singapore. Phase 2 will see capacity expanded to meet anticipated demand and improve accessibility to care by shifting facilities closer to transport nodes.
