Hospital Admissions

The safety of our patients is our utmost priority. For updates on the latest visitation guidelines, please refer to our visitor and patient advisory.

We are here to help make your admission and stay as smooth as possible. Be prepared with information on what to expect during pre-admission, during your stay and upon your discharge.

Note: For maternity pre-admission, please refer to the Birth and Delivery page for additional information and checklists.

Appointment & medical enquiry

Pre-registration

Your doctor or clinic will make the necessary reservations for your admission. For priority service, do ensure that your doctor has registered your details online.

For a faster and hassle-free hospital admission, you can choose to pre-register with us in advance.

To pre-register, you can present your identity card, passport or FIN card at our Business Office any time before your date of admission.

During the financial counselling at our office, you will be informed of our payment process and your estimated bill size.

Plan to use your insurance? If your insurance company, benefits administrator or employer is assisting to settle your bill, you need to produce a valid and complete Letter of Guarantee. Learn more about using your insurance.

Calculate your estimated hospital bill size

Use our Hospital Bill Estimator to estimate your out-of-pocket costs for common surgical procedures based on your integrated shield plan and riders.

During admission

We will contact you the day before your admission date and inform you about your allocated room.

When to arrive

On the day of admission, you should arrive at the hospital at the time specified by your doctor.

If your doctor has told you that you need blood on standby for surgery, you need to check in before your surgery date for blood grouping and cross-matching.

Please check into the hospital before 1.00pm on the day before your surgery date. If your surgery has been scheduled for a Monday, check in on Saturday before 11.00am.

Where to go

When you arrive at the hospital, proceed directly to the room allocated to you. Once there, one of our nurses will process your check-in.

If you are unsure of where to go, the Concierge at the main lobby will be pleased to assist you.
