​National University Centre for Women and Children (NUWoC)

National University Centre for Women and Children (NUWoC) is a national university specialist centre that aims to empower women, children and their families to lead healthier lives. We provide comprehensive medical and surgical services ranging from pre-conception to child and maternal health.

NUWoC comprises the Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology (O & G) and Khoo Teck Puat - National University Children's Medical Institute (KTP-NUCMI) of National University Hospital. It focuses on the right-siting of appropriate services in the community and builds complementary services in National University Health System's (NUHS) institutions - Ng Teng Fong General Hospital and Alexandra Hospital.

Through a generous gift from the Estate of Khoo Teck Puat, KTP-NUCMI established an integrated outpatient facility with medical, diagnostic and rehabilitation services for children. We are also the only public specialist centre in Singapore that offers paediatric kidney and liver transplant programmes.

We seek to improve accessibility to women and children healthcare services across every touchpoint, in every NUHS institution and in the community.

Our Vision

Empower women, children and their families to lead healthier lives.

Our Mission

Be the Centre of Excellence in Women and Children's Health so that every person can achieve their fullest human potential.
