Surbana Jurong’s (SJ) Mechanical & Electrical (M&E) Engineering team celebrated the groundbreaking of Woodlands Health Campus on Tuesday, 18 April 2017. It will be the country’s first hospital complex in which acute and community care services will be housed in the same building.

The medical facility in Woodlands, in the north of Singapore, is set on 7.66ha of land which is the size of about 11 football fields. It will also include a nursing home and specialist clinics, to allow patients to move seamlessly from acute to step-down care with the same doctors in charge.

Surbana Jurong is the M&E consultant for this project which is jointly undertaken by engineering firms Squire Mech and Alpha Consulting Engineers.

“This project is the first multi-building general hospital undertaken by SJ for M&E and Environment Sustainable Design (ESD) services. Together with our partners, we are proud to be able to contribute to the nation-wide efforts in meeting the challenge of the growing demand from an ageing population,” said Lek Siang Hwa, Senior Director, M&E Engineering.

The 1,800 bed medical facility is expected to take in its first patients in 2022.
