There will be 700 acute beds, with an additional 400 beds from JCH. About six in 10 of the acute beds are subsidised, in Class B2 or C wards.
The older, larger public hospitals, such as the Singapore General Hospital, typically have more than 1,000 beds. However, very few of them have step-down care community hospital facilities so conveniently available.
At the hospital’s specialist outpatient clinics, patients will use the same queue number throughout the visit – at every clinic and service point. Payment for all services will be consolidated into one bill at the end. )
