The Singapore-based team of architect Broadway Malyan has been tasked to design Health City Novena, a new mega healthcare development to be built around Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
The plan is to link existing medical facilities and the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine to create the largest healthcare complex in Singapore, which will also host a new National Skin Centre.
Floor space will also be increased by replacing low-rise buildings with space-efficient multi-storey blocks. The number of beds will also be ramped up by 25 percent to 2,200.
To be completed in 2030, the complex aims to serve patients within Central Singapore, where the local population is ageing faster compared to other parts of the country.
Spearheaded by Tan Tock Seng Hospital, Singapore's Health Ministry and the National Healthcare Group, the health city will offer a full range of acute to intermediate and long-term care and holistic care services, as well as wider research and education, leisure, commercial and public spaces.
“The public launch is a major milestone in the delivery of this exciting project and our team of world-class master planning and design experts is working in close partnership with the client’s team to deliver a scheme which transforms the experience of patients and the range of healthcare services in Central Singapore,” said Practice Director Ian Simpson.
