Tan Tock Seng Hospital in Singapore has launched 17ha mega healthcare city project, designed by the architectural firm Broadway Malyan.
The project, dubbed Health City Novena, is being implemented by Tan Tock Seng Hospital, the National Healthcare Group and Singapore Health Ministry.
Broadway Malyan's Singapore-based team is providing the masterplan, architectural and landscape design services, in collaboration with Surbana International Consultants, which is offering project management and engineering services.
The project will connect existing healthcare facilities and the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine.
After completion, the facility will serve 30,000 patients, visitors, staff, students and residents per day, double the current 15,000 who visit Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
As per the plans, existing buildings will be replaced with multi-storey blocks to increase the floor space from 250,000 to 600,000sq m.
The number of beds will be increased by 25% to 2,200 and ten buildings will be physically connected, including Tan Tock Seng Hospital.
Broadway Malyan said it will deliver a sustainable complex with a large, central open space featuring a new plaza.
Broadway Malyan practice director Ian Simpson said, "The public launch is a major milestone in the delivery of this exciting project and our team of world-class masterplanning and design experts is working in close partnership with the client's team to deliver a scheme which transforms the experience of patients and the range of healthcare services in Central Singapore."
