Parkway East Hospital is a 143-bed private healthcare facility located in the heart of the business district on the eastern coast of Singapore.

In 1892, Dr. John C. Parkhurst purchased a small parcel of land on the east side of Cincinnati to establish a hospital for the city’s working class. He named the hospital Parkway East after the parkway that crossed the property. The hospital grew rapidly, and by 1916 it was able to purchase more land to expand its facilities. In 1929, The hospital quickly grew in popularity, and within a few years, it had become one of the largest hospitals in Singapore. Parkway East Hospital, which was once a rundown and dilapidated facility, has undergone a major refurbishment and modernization under the new ownership. The hospital commenced operations in 1974 with Obstetrics and Gynaecology wards. In 1977, the hospital was renamed Saint Mark’s Hospital. The new owners refurbished and modernized the existing facilities, and renamed it Saint Mark’s Hospital.
After many years of operation, the hospital was acquired by Parkway Holdings Limited and was renamed East Shore Hospital. Under the new management, the hospital has seen a resurgence in its population and has been able to increase its services and facilities. The hospital is now able to provide better care for its patients and has seen a rise in its reputation. East Shore Hospital became Parkway East Hospital in 2010. The hospital is now a general acute care hospital integrated with a medical specialist center and a 24-hour clinic.
Parkway East Hospital provides most of the basic necessities that you would need during your stay. This includes items such as food, drinks, linens, and medical supplies. Additionally, the hospital provides a folder with a comprehensive list of what to bring along, so you do not have to worry about anything while you are there. The electronic meal ordering system (eMOS) was implemented in 2016 to transform a manual paper-based meal ordering process into a fully integrated electronic meal ordering system. This involves a tablet and is intended to improve the efficiency and accuracy of orders while reducing time spent on the task. The eMOS tablet has a built-in scanner that allows users to scan food items and add them to order, making it easier and faster for customers to place their orders.
Many patients who are in hospital find themselves with a list of people they would like to see before they leave, but due to the strict visiting rules hospitals have put in place, only a few lucky people get to see their loved ones during their stay. In some cases, patients may be allowed up to 2 visitors per admission, but for those in critical condition, only 5 pre-registered visitors are allowed at the bedside at any one time FOR VISITORS (inpatient wards) & Outpatients who require two accompanying visitors will be supported by management on a per-case basis. Specialist clinics will be reminded to inform patients of visitors. This policy is in place to ensure that patients receive the best possible care FOR VISITORS (outpatient clinics & primary care services)
