Each year, more than 200,000 people from around the world travel to multi-cultural and multilingual Singapore for quality medical care. Providing an integrated focus in areas such as cardiology (heart), ophthalmology (eye) and oncology (cancer), patients receive quality healthcare and advanced treatments delivered by the region’s leading medical professionals.
Hospitals and specialty centres in Singapore offer a comprehensive range of healthcare services, which range from health screening, medical wellness and aesthetic treatments to specialty areas like cardiology, cardiothoracic surgery, urology, ophthalmology and oncology. These centres also carry out pioneering research and development, tapping on the growing biomedical research community in Singapore to discover innovative treatments.
In an independent survey published by the Political and Economic Risk Consultancy in April 2003, expatriates in Asia rated Singapore healthcare system as third in the world, following the United States and Australia. In 2002, the World Health Organisation’s first worldwide analysis of health systems ranked Singapore as the best in Asia, ahead of Japan (ranked 10) and the US (ranked 37).
Besides world-class medical care, international patients can find assurance in an environment that sets and enforces high standards in safeguarding health and ensuring efficacy. Singapore’s mix of cultures and multi-racial environment offers the most far-travelled patient a sense of home away from home. In Singapore’s vibrant multicultural and multilingual environment, patients are provided with the right balance of comfort and warmth.
