Architects Broadway Malyan have been picked to design a "mega integrated healthcare hub" for the rapidly ageing population of Singapore, the company says.
‘Health City Novena’ is spearheaded by Tan Tock Seng Hospital, the National Healthcare Group and Singapore Health Ministry, and will serve patients in Central Singapore, where the local population is aging faster than the rest of the country.
Broadway Malyan’s Singapore-based team is delivering the detailed masterplan, architectural and landscape design services, in collaboration with Surbana International Consultants, which is leading on project management and engineering services.
When complete in 2030 it will serve 30,000 patients, visitors, staff, students and residents a day (Broadway Malyan)
When complete in 2030 it will serve 30,000 patients, visitors, staff, students and residents a day, double the current 15,000 who visit Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
Existing low-rise old buildings will be replaced with space-efficient multi-storey blocks to increase the floor space from 250,000 to 600,000 sq m, the number of beds will be increased by 25 per cent to 2,200 and 10 buildings will be physically connected, including Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
