SINGAPORE GENERAL HOSPITAL Company Profile

23:47 EDT 23rd June 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Singapore General Hospital (SGH) is the public sector's flagship hospital. Established in 1821, the SGH is Singapore's oldest and largest acute tertiary hospital and national referral centre. A multi-disciplinary approach to medical care affords patients to ready access to a wide range of specialties and support services. SGH accounts for about one third of total acute hospital beds in the public sector and about a quarter of acute beds nationwide. Annually about 60,000 patients are admitted to our wards and another 500,000 attended to at our Specialist Outpatient Clinics.

Following a major reorganisation of the public healthcare services initiated by the Ministry of Health, SGH came under the management of Singapore Health Services Pte Ltd, or SingHealth, when the company was incorporated on 31 March 2000. The SingHealth Group is positioned to serve the eastern sector of Singapore through a cluster of 3 hospitals, 5 specialty centres and 7 polyclinics.

Committed to uphold its slogan "A Tradition of Caring & Excellence", SGH continues to provide the best and yet affordable medical services to its patients. This social mission and humanitarian legacy has been the driving force behind the Hospital's efforts and achievements in Service, Teaching and Research, the "Three Pillars" of SGH.
