Singapore's Mount Elizabeth Hospital starts renovation works

The $350m project will expand the hospital’s bed capacity by 50%.

Mount Elizabeth Hospital (MEH) has held a wall-breaking ceremony to mark the start of its first extensive refurbishment works to retrofit and rejuvenate its facility along Singapore’s Orchard Road, its operator IHH Healthcare said in a press release.

Called “Project Renaissance”, the $350m project, partly funded by Parkway Life REIT, is expected to span three years, adding another 56 single beds from the current 112 single beds as well as including other additions to transform the facility into a “modern and integrated multiservice hub,” the company said.

Yong Yih Ming, chief executive officer of MEH, said the renovation will include the refurbishment of the drop-off point, lobby, clinical assets and back room.

“Expansions to our Emergency Department and many of our inpatient and outpatient treatment centres, as well as improving our ward configurations will be carried out for better workflow, comfort and overall patient experience,” he added.

The hospital also aims to be designed to obtain BCA’s Green Mark Platinum certification, Singapore’s highest accolade for sustainable, green buildings, IHH added.
