“Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital will raise the bar on standards of healthcare and broaden the range of choices available to patients in Singapore and in Asia. This multi-billion-dollar hospital will be an important component in strengthening Singapore’s position as the leading medical hub in the region.”
Challenged to create a “hospital of the future” that would provide the best possible healing environment, the design team blended world-class technology and advanced medical expertise with hospitality-focused patient care.
The sophisticated medical plan combines a Singaporean care model demanding privacy and comfort with international benchmarks for interventional platforms, high-tech operating theaters and diagnostic treatments. Merging inpatient and outpatient services with diagnostic and treatment areas enables physicians to provide patients with a continuum of care delivered from medical offices organized as “centers of excellence” and traditional medical suites.
The design creates an environment that feels like an upscale hotel or residence. All 312 patient rooms are private, featuring custom furnishings and fittings. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow the healing power of natural light to shine through to patients. Balconies, gardens and rooftop landscaping link patients to the nurturing environment. The unique angled room design gives patients better access to the outdoor environment while helping clinical staff monitor their activities.
The hospital sets a new benchmark for sustainability in Singapore. Eco-friendly features including aerial gardens and integrated photovoltaic green technology helped the building earn Green Mark Platinum certification.
