In partnership with the Viva Foundation, 9a Viva-University Children's Cancer Centre (VUC3) caters to infants, children and adolescents with cancer and blood diseases. At VUC3, we have an integrated and under-one-roof set-up to help our paediatric patients and their families will feel at home.
Outpatient Consultation Clinics
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.
Point-Of-Care-Tests (POCT) for Full Blood Count and Onsite Pharmacy
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.
Day Therapy Centre
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.
Stem Cell Transplantation Suite
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.
