The government will call for tenders to appoint consultants for its planning and design.
A new integrated general and community hospital will be built in Bedok North in 2030, the country's Ministry of Health (MOH) announced in a press release.
The new hospital, which will be operated by government-owned Singapore Health Services (SingHealth), will be located next to the Bedok North MRT station, bounded by Bedok Reservoir Road and Bedok North Road.
The general hospital will offer emergency, inpatient and specialist outpatient services. Meanwhile, the community hospital will give intermediate services such as rehabilitation and sub-acute care to support patients discharged from the general hospital.
The government will call for tenders in the following weeks to appoint project consultants to plan and design the new integrated hospital at Bedok North.
MOH first announced its plans to build the new integrated hospital in the eastern part of Singapore during the Committee of Supply debate in March.
