  • Why Mount Elizabeth Hospitals

    mount elizabeth novena hospital

    Mount Elizabeth is a one-stop integrated healthcare institution, hosting Asia Pacific’s largest concentration of cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons and equipped with modern technology and facilities.

    As one of the first private hospitals in Singapore to perform a successful Left Ventricular Assist Device procedure (LVAD – a mechanical device that efficiently helps in the heart’s blood-pumping function), we have saved patients from the strain of heart transplant, and have given them renewed possibilities for more years of life.

    Our comprehensive range of diagnostic tests, advanced surgical treatments, cardiac rehabilitation and post-surgery counselling cover the full spectrum of specialist care.

  • Recovery

    Recovery from heart disease comes in many forms, both pre- and post-surgery. Besides using medication to keep your heart condition under control, a healthy lifestyle can also contribute greatly to your heart’s well-being.

    Lifestyle factors such as smoking, drinking alcohol, a fatty diet, lack of exercise and obesity are major contributing causes to heart diseases. At Mount Elizabeth Hospitals, we are equipped to help you modify your lifestyle and improve your general health.

    Our post-operative care programmes are tailored to include behaviour counselling and health education, and are designed to enhance your psychological and physical well-being. This is part of our commitment to improve your quality of life and possibly lower the risk of future hospital stays.

    We can partner with you through these 4 phases:

    • Inpatient
    • Outpatient
    • Outpatient intermediate maintenance
    • Community-based lifelong maintenance
  • Our Facilities and Support Staff
