Alexandra Health System (AHS) offers multi-disciplinary and holistic care for the patient's total well-being. Established on 1 April 2008, AHS is a healthcare cluster in the north that currently manages Khoo Teck Puat Hospital and Yishun Community Hospital.
As part of an integrated healthcare system to serve the community in the region, AHS will build and oversee the Admiralty Medical Centre, Sembawang Primary Care Centre and the Woodlands Health Campus. This integrated healthcare network will be ready progressively from 2017 to 2022.
Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH), a 590-bed general and acute care hospital, opened in June 2010. Serving more than 700,000 people living in the northern sector of Singapore, KTPH combines medical expertise with high standards of personalised care, set within a healing environment, to provide care that is good enough for our own loved ones. From intuitive wayfinding to logical clustering of services, KTPH's design is focused on providing a hassle-free experience for patients. The hospital has been designed with patients’ comfort in mind. Since its opening, the building has garnered numerous awards for its green and energy efficient design. Patients can enjoy comfortable accommodation in different categories of wards with views of greenery and naturally cool air from improved ventilation. KTPH also provides a wide range of outpatient specialist services.
Yishun Community Hospital (YCH), operational in December 2015, caters to the sub-acute and rehabilitation needs of patients. The community hospital, with 428 beds, provides intermediate care for convalescing patients who do not require the intensive care services of an acute-care hospital. YCH serves the community in the north, where patients benefit from the integration of the two hospitals in terms of physical proximity, information flow and treatment plans.
The Woodlands Health Campus will be an integrated healthcare facility that will include an acute hospital, a community hospital and a nursing home. The hospital will serve the anticipated increase in demand for healthcare services in the northern region of Singapore, as our population grows and ages. In line with our vision and mission to better take care of the population in the North, this facility will be the first of the four new acute hospitals which the Ministry of Health had earlier announced that it would build.

The new hospital will be located along Woodlands Drive 17, opposite Christ Church Secondary School. The site is easily accessible by SLE and BKE, and will also be within walking distance to the future Woodlands South MRT station.
The acute and community hospitals and nursing home will provide some 1,800 beds in total. The development is targeted to open progressively from 2022.
Located in the Admiralty neighbourhood, the Admiralty Medical Centre will enable residents to have easy access to these high-quality healthcare services right at their door-step:
Ready in 2017, community nurses and other healthcare professionals will use the centre as a base to reach out and care for the chronic disease patients, engaging them to better manage their conditions. The proximity of care is especially beneficial to the elderly and home-bound residents in the neighbourhood.
Being in the heart of the community, the centre will be able to actively involve residents, assessing their health and helping them adopt healthy lifestyle habits.

Singapore's first Primary Care Centre, Sembawang Primary Care Centre, will be built in Sembawang Community Hub. The centre will be located close to facilities like a sports complex and a hawker centre so as to provide a one-stop service for residents. The centre will be a test bed for new care models and care processes, and will be managed by Alexandra Health System.
