Heart Transplant - What it is

The heart transplant programme was established in 1990 with the National Heart Centre Singapore being the only healthcare institution in Singapore that carries out both heart and lung transplantations.  

Since its establishment, the programme has gifted more than 70 recipients who required a heart or/and lung transplantation, with a new lease of life.
