Woodlands Health Campus
Woodlands Health Campus (WHC) is a
1,800-bedded purpose-built Campus comprising a fully integrated acute and
community hospital, specialist outpatient clinics, and intermediate and
long-term care facilities. It is slated to open progressively from 2023.
WHC aims to reinvent the way care is
delivered and provide seamless integration of care within and beyond hospital
walls. To achieve this, WHC will be leveraging SMART technology to enhance care
within the hospital, and extend the reach of WHC healthcare professionals into
the community to partner and empower residents in their health journey. Work
has already begun at WHC pre-operations wards to test innovation and
user-friendly solutions for inpatient care, emergency medicine, pharmacy,
logistics and the community.
WHC has also started serving the community
through health talks, fitness sessions, health coaching and community nursing
posts. In September 2020, WHC introduced the GPFirst Programme in the North and
opened the first community-based Urgent Care Centre at Kampung Admiralty,
making urgent care more accessible to residents living nearby.
