Singapore General Hospital Introduction


With a history and tradition of medical excellence spanning two centuries, Singapore General Hospital (SGH) is Singapore’s flagship hospital.

SGH operates as a restructured hospital and is a member of the SingHealth (Singapore Health Services) Group, an integrated healthcare delivery network incorporated on 31 March 2000 comprising hospitals, national specialty centres and polyclinics.

It is a not-for-profit institution with a long tradition of providing affordable tertiary healthcare. As the bedrock of medical education, SGH continues to play a key role in nurturing doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, and is committed to innovative translational and clinical research.

Our social mission and humanitarian legacy have been the driving force behind the Hospital’s efforts and achievements in service, education and research – the “three pillars” of SGH.

Comprehensive Range Of Clinical Specialities
Dedicated to providing multidisciplinary medical care and backed by state-of-the-art facilities, SGH offers team-based quality patient care that is widely acknowledged to be amongst the best in the world.

Established in 1821, SGH is the third largest teaching hospital in the world to be re-certified as having attained the Joint Commission International standards of safety and quality in healthcare in 2008.

Located within the SGH Campus are sister institutions under the SingHealth Group – National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS), National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS), National Neuroscience Institute (NNI), Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC) and National Dental Centre Singapore (NDCS) and Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore, the country’s second medical school.

In the SGH Campus, patients have ready access to more than 30 specialty services including Haematology, Renal Medicine, Nuclear Medicine, Orthopaedic Surgery, Pathology and Plastic Surgery (Burns) which are established as national referral centres. It also boasts a comprehensive range of allied health service including Clinical Dietetics, Medical Social Services, Occupational Therapy, Pharmacy, Physiotherapy, Podiatry and Speech Therapy.

Every year, the SGH Campus caters to over 1 million patients. With a 7,000-strong multi-generation diversified workforce, SGH accounts for about a quarter of the total acute hospital beds in the public sector and about one-fifth of acute beds nationwide.

Teaching Hospital
SGH has been nurturing generations of doctors, nurses and allied health professionals since the first medical and nursing schools were established in the early 1900s. It became the first postgraduate teaching hospital for specialist training following the creation of specialty departments in the 1960s.

The Postgraduate Medical Institute (PGMI), Alice Lee Institute of Advanced Nursing (IAN), Postgraduate Allied Health Institute (PGAHI) and Institute of Medical Simulation and Education (IMSE) are established within the hospital for the training of local and overseas healthcare professionals seeking advanced and clinical skills training and education.

Today, students from both the National University of Singapore’s Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School Singapore, spend a substantial part of their curriculum in SGH. At the same time, our medical staff hold teachings positions at both universities.

SGH also plays a major role in undergraduate medical teaching and serves as a clinical teaching hospital for student nurses, radiographers and therapists from the polytechnics and medical institutions here and the Asia Pacific region.

Patient-directed Research
SGH’s goal is to develop the SGH Campus into a global centre of translational and clinical research. In pioneering research, it will remain at the forefront of technology and medicine and ensure that her patients have the best outcome. The Hospital is well placed to achieve this as it can capitalise on its multi-disciplinary capabilities, depth of specialization, a large patient base and its research affiliations with renowned centres overseas.

Clinical research is an integral part of our institutional practice and is actively carried out by medical, nursing and allied health departments to augment care delivery and teaching which maintains databases of genetic and clinical information of thousands of patients.

To support the next lap of biomedical science development, the new SGH Pathology Building will consolidate several laboratory service sites at one location to enhance integration, enable effective deployment of equipment and manpower, and raise workflow efficiency.
