Ng Teng Fong General Hospital and Jurong Community Hospital

Ng Teng Fong General Hospital and Jurong Community Hospital comprise a regional hospital, a community hospital as well as specialist outpatient clinics. The two hospitals operate symbiotically, with the regional hospital providing advanced medical and general support services to the community hospital and the latter receiving the former’s stabilised, recovering patients for stepdown care.

To reduce the need for mechanical ventilation in Singapore’s tropical weather, the building is oriented in a northwest-southeast direction to maximise exposure to prevailing winds for natural ventilation, and to minimise direct solar heat. With an individual window for every patient next to each angled bed module, planters are aligned and positioned to be viewed by every patient—this not only creates a distinctive façade, but also provides shading in the form of external gardens and planters.

All three blocks are designed with architectural features that carve spaces for natural lighting and landscaping within the buildings—high-rise gardens and balconies at the wards, and internal courtyards and skylights in offices seek to offer both patients and employees quality healing and comfortable working experience respectively.
