Changi General Hospital is a 790-bed hospital located in Simei, eastern Singapore. It is Singapores first purpose-built general hospital to serve communities in the east and north-east regions.
The hospital has a comprehensive range of more than 23 medical services, from general surgery, internal medicine, cardiology, ENT to orthopaedic surgery and sports medicine. It houses six specialist centres – Breast Centre, Changi Sports Medicine Centre, Diabetes Centre, Geriatric Centre, Integrated Sleep Service and Medical Centre for International Travellers.
The hospital is JCI (Joint Commission International) accredited.
On 15 February 1997, the Old Changi Hospital merged with Toa Payoh Hospital to form New Changi Hospital and began to move into the present premises. The hospital was declared officially opened on 28 March 1998 by then Deputy Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. Under Singapore’s public healthcare restructuring, the hospital became part of the Singapore Health Services (SingHealth) cluster in 2000.
Over the years, the hospital expanded its clinical services to include Sports Medicine, Dermatology, Psychological Medicine, Rheumatology and Neurosurgery, and introduced specialist centres to meet the healthcare needs of the population.
On 11 April 2005, the Changi General Hospital became the first acute care hospital to integrate care with a community hospital, St. Andrew’s Community Hospital. Both hospitals are connected by a sheltered link bridge to facilitate the transfer of care for patients. On 11 June 2005, the hospital was the second hospital in Singapore to receive the Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation. It was the first hospital to have a JCI accreditation for its Heart Failure Programme and Acute Myocardial Infarction Programme.
To build on its expertise in sports medicine and create capacity for more sports specialists, the hospital acquired Singapore Sports Medicine Centre on 1 November 2010.
On 1 April 2011, the hospital became legally independent of SingHealth.
On 18 November 2011, the hospital became a founding member of the Eastern Health Alliance.
