Jurong Community Hospital
Jurong Community Hospital is a public hospital in Singapore.
The Jurong Community Hospital (JCH) is a 400-bed community hospital in Singapore’s Jurong East. It’s part of a larger hospital complex that also includes the Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (abbreviated to NTFGH). While Jurong Community Hospital began operations on July 22, 2015, it was formally launched on October 10, 2015, alongside NTFGH.
The integrated healthcare complex, which includes both the Ng Teng Fong General Hospital and the Jurong Community Hospital, started construction in September 2012 and was expected to be completed by 2015 (initially December 2014 for NTFGH), with a budget of S$700 million. CPG Consultants was the principal developer of the integrated hub after winning the contract for its development.
The Building Construction Authority of Singapore awarded the integrated hub (which includes Jurong Community Hospital) the Green Mark Platinum Award in 2013 for its ecologically efficient design characteristics.
On July 22, 2015, the hospital opened its doors.
On the 10th of October that year, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, as guest-of-honour, formally inaugurated Jurong Community Hospital and Ng Teng Fong General Hospital during JurongHealth’s Health Carnival.
Mobility Park and the LIFE Hub are included.
JCH is Singapore’s first hospital to include a mobility park, which allows patients to gradually re-acclimate to regular life. It has ramps, stairs, rough surfaces, and a safe atmosphere with a simulation of public transportation (including MRT carriages and buses).
Furthermore, the LIFE Hub, which consists of a mock-up of a three-room HDB apartment outfitted with accessibility items, assists patients in reintegrating into their home environment.
JCH (together with the Ng Teng Fong General Hospital) is connected to J-Walk, a second-story pedestrian network in the Jurong Gateway region that links them to the Jurong East MRT station, Jurong East Bus Interchange, and neighboring commercial malls (Jem, Westgate, Big Box, IMM).
With an unusual fan form, the design of our wards at NTFGH and JCH deviates from the norm. This ground-breaking design includes a window for each patient, greatly improving ventilation and maximizing natural light. These features not only increase the patient’s comfort and speed of recovery, but they also help to prevent infection. In addition, the medical staff will have a more spacious and comfortable working atmosphere thanks to this ward design.
