The Shaw-NKF Children's Kidney Centre in Ward 45 is jointly funded by the National Kidney Foundation and the Shaw Foundation. It is specially designed for the multidisciplinary holistic management of paediatric patients with kidney diseases and their families. Our doctors and nurses have expertise in the care of paediatric dialysis and transplant patients as well as those receiving immunosuppressants for various kidney disorders. Private rooms are available for family meetings with the medical team. The ward also houses simple kitchen facilities for caregivers and a dedicated children's play area.
Our dialysis equipment can cater to patients of varying sizes, ranging from newborns to adult-sized adolescents. Our programme is primarily an automated nightly home peritoneal dialysis programme to allow maximal integration of our patients in schools and the workplace. In the peritoneal dialysis area, specially trained paediatric dialysis nurses conduct formal one-to-one training on home automated peritoneal dialysis to the patients and their caregivers. We also perform simple outpatient procedures like assessment of exit sites and peritoneal equilibrium tests here. Simple day therapy procedures like administration of intravenous drugs can also be performed. In the haemodialysis area, we perform long-term haemodialysis for paediatric patients. We also perform and conduct training for home haemodialysis for selected patients.
These clinics, located just next to the dialysis area, allow our dialysis, transplant and immunosuppressed patients to be seen promptly by our doctors and nurses, separate from other patients with possible acute infections like flu. The clinic also provides rooms for consultations with psychiatrists, psychologists, dietitians and social workers. Specially equipped rooms for child life, play and art therapies are also available here.
Our renal biopsy team comprises paediatric nephrologists, paediatric radiologists, paediatric laboratory staff and doctors in charge of sedation. We have a dedicated room for these renal biopsies, equipped with an ultrasound machine, sedation equipment and a microscope to allow immediate visualisation of the biopsy samples.

Mondays to Fridays: 8.00am to 5.30pm
Dedicated solely to children with cancer and blood diseases, the outpatient consultation rooms help to minimise the risk of possible infections from other children with cough and cold. Parents are also able to support one another through discussions in comfortable waiting areas. There is a child-friendly waiting room as well as a separate room for teenage patients.
Patients no longer need to go through long waits for their Full Blood Count (FBC) results. Two full-time trained haematology technicians are available to run the FBC on the spot and upload the results into our real time computerised patient care system within 15 minutes. After consultation, chemotherapy orders are reconstituted fresh in the onsite pharmacy to be administered in the Day Therapy Centre. Medications are also dispensed onsite by dedicated oncology pharmacists.
The Day Therapy Centre has 9 beds with televisions for patients to receive their chemotherapy treatment comfortably. There are also 4 single beds for bone marrow transplant patients and 1 isolation bed. The Day Therapy Centre allows the majority of our chemotherapy to be administered as outpatient cases.
Mondays to Fridays: 8.00am to 8.00pm
The Inpatient Centre has 17 beds with 5 stem cell transplant rooms and 3 isolation rooms. The isolation rooms are specially designed with infection prevention in mind, with dedicated negative pressure and double door isolation.
Each bed has a mounted television for entertainment and computer games. Broadband internet access, lounges and chairs which can be converted into overnight beds, and kitchen facilities are also available for our patients' caregivers.
The social workers from the Children Cancer Foundation run an on-site library and resource room where patients and their parents can borrow clean toys and books to keep themselves occupied. Dedicated play areas for children are available in various sections of the Centre.
The stem cell transplantation suite comprises 5 individual High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA)-filtered positive pressure rooms with a dedicated HEPA-filtered exercise corridor, motion-activated double-door, play area and nursing counter.
Severely immunocompromised children undergoing stem cell transplantation no longer need to be strictly confined to their own rooms but will be able to mobilise, exercise and play in the comfort of an exceedingly clean environment.
Parents can interact with and support one another during the period of transplantation. A treadmill and an exercise bicycle are available for parents or patients keen to work up a sweat.

Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) Singapore provides vital resources and compassionate care to children and their families in NUH via our programmes – Ronald McDonald House™ and Ronald McDonald Family Room™.
The Ronald McDonald House™ and Ronald McDonald Family Room™ at NUH are temporary and very special "home away from home" for families of seriously ill children being treated at the hospital. We know parents want to be close to their children while they are in the hospital and our Ronald McDonald House™ and Ronald McDonald Family Room™ can help to make that happen. If you are a registered guest, you may go back and forth between your child and our facilities whenever you want without leaving the hospital. We offer a home-like environment where parents can find respite from the anxiety and stress of the wards. The doctors, nurses and hospital staff are here to take good care of your seriously ill children and RMHC Singapore is here to help take care of you.
Our Ronald McDonald House™ and Ronald McDonald Family Room™ are open 24 hours a day for registered family members. If you would like to access our facilities, please register with our staff at Ronald McDonald House™ in NUH between 9.00am and 9.00pm.
Holistic care for our patients starts before the patient arrives in the hospital. This is especially true for our non-ambulant patients with neuromuscular condition. Due to progressive muscle weakness, these children use motorised wheelchair for mobility. As such, coming to the hospital for clinic review poses extra challenges.
Although NUH is wheelchair accessible, patients may come from homes where it is hard for them to get to public transport like MRT or buses. Their bulky and heavy motorised wheelchairs also do not fit in regular taxis or family sedan cars. The additional costs of hiring an appropriate transport and safety issues during transit are important matters to address.
Our paediatric patient Toh Wee Yang as he alights the cab using the ramp.
On 5 July 2014, RMHC Singapore granted us funds to cover the transportation cost of our non-ambulant neuromuscular young patients. This enabled us to hire London cab which has a wheelchair retention system to hold wheelchairs firm and secure during transit as well as accommodate most large motorised wheelchairs. The programme covers the cost of transport to NUH for any clinic visit as well as from NUH back to their homes safely.
It has made it easier for our non-ambulant young patients to come to NUH for their medical appointments and also relieves the search for a parking lot for the handicapped.
Beneficiaries of this programme would like to extend their heartfelt thanks to RMHC Singapore for helping their family.
The NUHkids Space Station is an initiative by KTP-NUCMI to improve quality and safety of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans for children. It is funded by Ronald McDonald House Charities®. Our aim is to reduce the need for sedatives. To enhance the overall experience for your child, he or she can watch a movie during the scan while donning a special spacesuit and helmet to enter the spaceship!
1. What is an MRI scan?
2. What is this space adventure about?
3. Can I be with my child during the MRI scan?
4. What happens if my child cannot lie still or is too scared to do the MRI scan?
5. Does my child need to fast before the MRI scan?
MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, which is a safe and painless test that uses a strong magnetic field to obtain detailed pictures inside our body. The MRI scanner is a square machine with a tunnel in the middle. Your child will be placed on a table that slides into the tunnel for the MRI scan. He or she has to lie very still for the machine to obtain a clear image.
Back to top
At our NUHkids Space Station, your child will don a special suit and helmet in preparation for entering our space shuttle, which is also the MRI room. He or she can watch a movie during the scan.
With this space adventure, we hope that your child will enjoy the MRI scan instead of fearing it!
Of course! We would like you to enjoy the adventure together with your child. One parent can accompany the child into the MRI room.
We will have to give your child sedation. This will put him or her to light sleep. Alternatively, the scan may be postponed to another day.
In the event that your child requires sedation, we will need him or her to fast for at least 4 to 6 hours before the MRI scan. Your child's doctor will advise you accordingly.
