Sengkang General Hospital
Sengkang General Hospital (SKH) forms a
vital part of Singapore's master plan to provide quality and accessible care to
better serve the healthcare needs in North-Eastern Singapore.
Offering a wide spectrum of specialist
clinics and co-located with Sengkang Community Hospital, SKH is a part of the
newest integrated hospital campus delivering multi-disciplinary and
patient-centric care covering all major healthcare disciplines.
Reflecting its mission of achieving better
health together, SKH's team of doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals
practise multi-disciplinary and team-based care. Patients are treated
holistically and will benefit from having a primary doctor (specialist) oversee
and coordinate their care throughout their hospitalisation stay and follow-up.
For patients who need longer-term rehabilitative care, they can be seamlessly
transferred from the general hospital to the community hospital to receive the
appropriate care during their recovery.
As part of the hospital's efforts to provide
integrated care for patients, our multi-disciplinary care team works with
polyclinics, general practitioners, and other healthcare providers to provide
longer-term care for chronic disease management through follow-ups with
patients and ensuring timely and appropriate access to specialist care for
acute and complex cases.
Allowing residents in the north-east to
access national specialty services nearer their home, SKH has collaborated with
National Heart Centre, National Cancer Centre, Singapore National Eye Centre,
National Dental Centre Singapore, National Neuroscience Institute and KK
Women's and Children's Hospital to offer specialty services within the
hospital's Medical Centre.
