The 26,000 sq m Centre for Oral Health will house research, education and clinical services. Currently, these services are provided in three separate buildings. Undergraduate teaching and research are done in two different buildings at NUS, while clinical services are provided at NUH.
The project hopes to encourage more voluntary work among dentists. The Faculty will be partnering with a charitable organisation to set up a free dental clinic for the needy.
The constructions will allow the faculty to increase its intake of dental students and train more specialists. The Ministry of Health has projected the need to increase the undergraduate intake from 48 students a year to 80 in 2020. The new centre will also provide the full range of oral health care, especially geriatric and preventive-care dentistry. It will carry out research into areas such as regenerative biology and tissue engineering, focusing on new ways to enhance repair and regeneration of soft tissue and bone as the population ages.

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 first specialised training center for Assisted Reproductive Techniques (ART) of its kind has been established in Asia Pacific, to enhance the ART skills of clinicians, embryologists, nurses and administrators from around the region.

The unique real life, real learningapproach will enable practitioners to immediately apply newly acquired skills.
CREST is made possible by a $3.8-million donation from German pharmaceutical and chemical company Merck-Serono.

Residents in the fast-growing Sengkang and Punggol areas will be served by a new hospital and an additional polyclinic. 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.
Substantial investments in the healthcare infrastructure, including a S$50-million upgrade of polyclinics at Ang Mo Kio, Bedok, Geylang, Tampines and Yishun over the next five years have just been announced as well. A new polyclinic will also be built in Punggol.
SingHealth has been tasked with assembling a "young outstanding team" to take charge of the project and will "challenge them" to build a better hospital than Khoo Teck Puat Hospital and the one in Jurong, "measured from the patients' point of view". The new hospital will be located beside Cheng Lim LRT Station and within walking distance of Sengkang MRT Station.
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.
MyHomeTutor Campus is pleased to announce the opening of their 6th and 7th campuses at Bukit Batok Central and Jurong West!
