Overview

The National University Hospital is a tertiary hospital and major referral centre with over 50 medical, surgical and dental specialties, offering a comprehensive suite of specialist care for adults, women and children. It is the only public hospital in Singapore to offer a paediatric kidney and liver transplant programme, in addition to kidney, liver and pancreas transplantation for adults.

The Hospital was opened on 24 June 1985 as Singapore’s first restructured hospital. Each year, the Hospital attends to more than one million patients.

As an academic health institution, patient safety and good clinical outcomes remain the focus of the hospital as it continues to play a key role in the training of doctors, nurses, allied health and other healthcare professionals. Translational research plays a pivotal role in the Hospital’s three-pronged focus, paving the way for new cures and treatment.
