Covid-19 Update

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the hospital is constantly updating measures put in place to safeguard patients, staff and any visitors accordingly. We urge you to continuously check with us for any updates. In line with these updates, the hospital has eased the restrictions on visiting hours by lifting the suspension previously placed on visiting hours. Patients can now receive one visitor per day for 30 minutes. Please refer to the visiting hours page for the schedule. The hospital also advises that we now have a Persons Under Investigations (PUI) isolation ward within the premises. The ward will ensure improved patient management regardless of Covid-19 status.
