Sengkang General and Community Hospitals is an innovative new health facility with an expected completion date of 2018. It is situated at the corner of Sangkang East Road and Anchorvale Street near Treasure Crest in Singapore. The facility is intended for the residents of Sengkang, Pasir Ris, Hougang, and Punggol.

The development will include a 1,000 bed general hospital and a 400 bed community hospital. A pedestrian bridge links the two hospitals. As the level of care a patient needs changes, they can be easily transferred from one to the other in one of the 200 easily movable “swing beds”. A Specialist Clinic is also planned.
As medical professionals in different buildings work together they reinforce the hospital’s holistic mission. The multi-disciplinary teams help patients and their families understand options, treatment plans and their current health. They consider the whole patient, including any mental, spiritual and emotional concerns.

Patient and visitor amenities are planned to make a hospital stay more comfortable. A number of gardens are planned, including a rooftop garden and smaller “pocket” gardens elsewhere. Retail shops are planned as well as a food court. A community space is planned for wellness activities that reinforce the hospital’s holistic mission.
Education is as important as patient comfort. Training facilities include a Skills Lab and a Nurses’ Training Room at Treasure Crest Sim Lian. A Patient-Caregiver Training Centre helps new members of that field learn new skills. Presentations in the Lecture Theatre will keep medical professionals up to date and efficiently serving the community for years to come.
