Ng Teng Fong General Hospital is Singapore’s first medical campus with an outpatient clinic, community hospital and acute care general hospital. The facility, which includes Jurong Community Hospital, provides seamless integration of care on a single site. The hospitals are designed to share service facilities such as digital imaging, pharmacy, catering, medical records, storage and training facilities.
Sustainable design strategies create a facility that functions like a vertical healing garden. The design brings plants, gardens and daylight into each patient’s view. Controlled access to vegetation on terraces provides a therapeutic environment for healing. Oriented to reduce solar gain and capture prevailing breezes, the unique floor arrangement allows for double the amount of natural ventilation. The project also includes solar thermal hot water heating and a large photovoltaic array. It has been rated Platinum under Singapore’s Green Mark program.
