Changi General Hospital
Changi General Hospital is a public hospital in Singapore.
Changi General Hospital (abbreviated as CGH) is a 1000-bed hospital in Simei, Singapore’s eastern region. It is Singapore’s first purpose-built general hospital, serving the east and north-east parts of the city-state.
General surgery, internal medicine, cardiology, ENT, orthopaedic surgery, and sports medicine are among the hospital’s more than 23 medical services. Breast Centre, Changi Sports Medicine Centre, Diabetes Centre, Geriatric Centre, Integrated Sleep Service, and Medical Centre for International Travellers are among the six speciality facilities housed there.
JCI (Joint Commission International) accreditation has been granted to the hospital.
The Old Changi Hospital combined with Toa Payoh Hospital to establish New Changi Hospital on February 15, 1997, and moved into its current location. On March 28, 1998, then-Deputy Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong proclaimed the hospital fully open. In 2000, the hospital became part of the Singapore Health Services (SingHealth) cluster as part of Singapore’s public healthcare reorganization.
Over time, the hospital added specialty centers and extended its clinical offerings to include Sports Medicine, Dermatology, Psychological Medicine, Rheumatology, and Neurosurgery.
Changi General Hospital became the first acute care hospital in Singapore to merge treatment with a community hospital, St. Andrew’s Community Hospital, on April 11, 2005. A protected connection bridge connects the two hospitals. The hospital was the second in Singapore to acquire Joint Commission International (JCI) certification on June 11, 2005. It was the first hospital to be accredited by the Joint Commission International for its Heart Failure and Acute Myocardial Infarction programs.
On November 1, 2010, the hospital purchased Singapore Sports Medicine Centre to expand its sports medicine expertise and provide capacity for additional sports experts.
The hospital became legally independent of SingHealth on April 1, 2011.
The Eastern Health Alliance welcomed the hospital as a founding member on November 18, 2011. Changi General Hospital, St. Andrew’s Community Hospital, SingHealth Polyclinics, and The Salvation Army Peacehaven Nursing Home were among the founding members of the Eastern Health Alliance on November 18, 2011. Its claimed goal was to better organize the delivery of healthcare services in the Eastern United States.
The Eastern Health Alliance amalgamated with SingHealth in 2017, and the hospital was restored to SingHealth’s control.
The Campus of the CGH
For the inhabitants of eastern Singapore, the CGH goal is to provide comprehensive, patient-centered treatment. This is accomplished via the use of integrated and innovative facilities that allow for the delivery of seamless, high-quality healthcare.
In 2014, the CGH campus built two buildings to the Main Building that concentrate on delivering acute, critical, emergency, and diagnostic services – The Integrated Building and the Medical Centre. The Integrated Building strives to improve functioning and promote patients’ return to their homes by creating a welcoming atmosphere for patients across the hospital and in rehabilitation settings.
A range of outpatient multi-specialty centers within the Medical Centre offer comprehensive ambulatory treatment. It is intended to facilitate multi-disciplinary consultation, functioning as a one-stop facility that delivers more patient-centric treatment, with over 130 consultation rooms for specialty outpatient care and minor surgical rooms.
