The National University Hospital’s (NUH) new heart centre will be a one-stop centre for heart patients, with its own dedicated cardiovascular nursing and operations team. Officially opened yesterday, the centre will focus on six areas of cardiovascular care: heart failure, congenital heart disease, acute coronary syndrome, vascular disease, women’s heart health and heart rhythm disorder. Its new three-storey building also brings together several departments that used to be scattered across the hospital grounds. These are the cardiac, and thoracic and vascular surgery departments, and the Cardiovascular Research Institute.
The focus is on a holistic and comprehensive approach to treating heart disease. As part of this approach, the new centre even has a garden created by multi-media artist Tan Swie Hian, featuring various sculptures and poems about the heart. This is Singapore’s second heart centre, and is meant to complement the Outram Road facility and take over some of its patient load.
NUH sees about 62,000 outpatients for heart illnesses yearly. With its increased capacity, the new heart centre will be able to see about 10 per cent more patients. This is expected to adequately handle sustained increases in workload for at least the next six to eight years. The new centre’s six key focus areas are meant to address the problems that come with Singapore’s ageing population. Its women’s heart health clinic is also the first of its kind in Singapore. Cardiovascular disease, which includes heart disease and stroke, is the No. 1 killer among women in Singapore. There is also the addition of a cardiac rehabilitation centre which will provide aerobic and weight-resistance training to improve patients’ heart health.
With the new centre, floor space has increased by more than three times. The number of clinics and laboratories has also been increased by about 50 per cent to cater to a larger number of patients.

The tassels of diamonds lend movement, grace and elegance to the jewelry and mark a move away from the structured look of previous season’s chandelier earrings. These tassels are soft and flowing, much like cascading water from a waterfall.

Opening in 2020, the Sengkang hospital - which will likely have between 500 and 600 beds - will be the third new hospital to be up-and-running in a decade, following the opening of Khoo Teck Puat Hospital last year and the scheduled opening of the Jurong Hospital in 2014.

The upgraded polyclinics are now paperless and have multi-disciplinary teams. They are also piloting tele-ophthalmology for patients with eye disease, helping to cut unnecessary referrals to a hospital ophthalmologist. The 700-bed Jurong general hospital will be renamed the Ng Teng Fong Hospital, after the family of the late property mogul and founding chairman of Far East Organization donated S$125 million to the institution.

The Chinese New Year will bring about a new chapter for Dover Park Hospice when it expands its services and facilities at a cost of $2.5 million. The three-storey building at 10 Jalan Tan Tock Seng will have 10 more beds in four single rooms and three two-bed rooms, raising its bed capacity from the current 40.
Further expansion is not possible at the current site because of space constraints. The hospice is also hiring another six nurses to add to the current staff strength of 21 nurses, four doctors, a medical social worker, a counsellor, eight care employees and a part-time music therapist. Preparations for the new beds are underway, and the foreign nurses who occupied dormitories on the top floor are moving out.
The dormitory space will be turned into offices, which are now on the lower floors. The space on the lower floors will, in turn, be used for the new beds. A multi-purpose room and another one for prayers will also be refurbished to create more single rooms for patients. The walls will be repainted from the current white and orange to something more soothing. The hospice's expansion will be a small boost to the palliative care sector, which serves about 1,200 inpatients a year, according to the Health Ministry.
Dover Park Hospice opened in September 1995 with 40 beds. It has an annual operating cost of $4 million, of which 35 per cent is paid for by government subsidies, half by fund-raising events and donations and 15 per cent from patients' fees. Patients pay $210 per day, of which $160 can be drawn from Medisave. About a third of the patients are fully subsidised.
Jurong General Hospital is part of Jurong Health Services. Slated to open in 2014, the 700-bed acute hospital will be twinned with a 280-bed community hospital to provide patients with holistic and integrated care. Conveniently located within walking distance from the Jurong East MRT and Jurong East Bus Interchange, Jurong General Hospital will be collaborating closely with other healthcare partners including primary care providers such as General Practitioners and polyclinics, hospitals, long term care providers and voluntary welfare organisations.
The Hospital Planning Department: Hospital Planning is a unique department set up specifically to oversee and coordinate the design and construction of our new regional hospital, Jurong General Hospital, that caters to fast medicine. Working closely with the end users (doctors, nurses, allied health and administrators from the hospital), Hospital Planning will be the key driver working in close collaboration with the Architects and Medical Planners to plan and design our new hospital building.
A design competition held in mid 2009 saw many exciting entries from local and international architects. The competition was a platform to select the best building consultant/architect as the main Consultant and we were on the lookout for an organisation which understands the complexity of a healthcare building with sensitivity to the needs of a patient. CPG Consultants, HOK (USA) and Studio 505 (Australia) submitted the winning design, which incorporated features like:
A window for every patient - to improve lighting, ventilation and external views for the patient.
Healing environment - to incorporate natural and outdoor views through the window next to every bed. This would create a calming and restful environment which would help in the healing process of the patient.
Sense of connection with the Community - integrated community space within the hospital with the facilities and parks nearby.
They have since conducted many workshops with the architects to revise the design specifications as well as the general massing of the buildings. In the planning of these features the vision of the hospital remains as the focal point:
The Patient is their focus - Patients will be treated with respect, dignity and compassion. We will treat our staff likewise so that they can be expected to extend the same care towards our patients. Patient care will be integrated and holistic - The whole continuum of patient care will be coordinated and integrated, within the hospital and across the healthcare continuum (with Academic Medical Clusters, other hospitals and across step-down and primary care settings). Their focus would be on the "individual" within the patient; not just body parts or symptoms.
The hospital as a conducive innovation and research milieu - Staff are engaged in inquiry and research to continuously enhance medical care and patient experience. They will partner others to bring experimental clinical innovations for patient's benefits. A rich training ground for the next generation of healthcare providers. Ensure a systematic and integrated curriculum for medical and healthcare professionals.
A commitment to build a healthcare institution for generations to come.
