Hospital Facilities

Our facilities

Mount Elizabeth Hospitals are supported by well-equipped, specialised facilities to deliver optimal clinical outcomes for our patients.

Intensive care unit (ICU)

The intensive care unit (ICU) is a specialised facility dedicated to patients who require close monitoring, nursing care and complex respiratory support. Our ICU is staffed 24 hours a day by:

  • Board-certified specialists
  • Seasoned critical care nurses
  • Nurse practitioners
  • Physician assistants

Features of the ICU

Our units leverage technology to ensure patient safety and quality clinical care. Its features include:

  • 24-hour centralised monitoring of vital signs. Patients’ vital signs are transmitted to a central nursing station manned around the clock by our qualified nurses. This enables the ICU team to respond to any changes swiftly.
  • A ceiling-mounted service unit to deliver critical power and house medical equipment. Beds in the ICU are not tethered to the wall and can be rotated or positioned flexibly for optimum results.
  • A close proximity to the operating theatres, allowing patients to receive emergency treatment as quickly as possible.

High dependency unit (HDU)

The high dependency unit (HDU) is an intermediate care unit for patients who require a higher level of observation, treatment and nursing care compared to a general ward.

The HDU is also called a step-down unit or progressive care unit. A move from the ICU to the HDU is often seen as a welcome sign of progress. Such moves mean that the patient is gradually resuming normal eating and sleeping patterns, and is a step closer to going home.

Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)

The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) specialises in the monitoring and care of ill or premature newborn infants. The NICU also admits babies with congenital problems or trauma during delivery.

Our NICU provides the following services:

  • Newborn screening
  • Neonatal intensive and special care
  • Standby team for high-risk deliveries
  • High-risk and birth defect consultations
  • Neonatal neurodevelopmental follow-up monitoring of premature newborn infants
  • Specialist outpatient consultation

With sophisticated equipment and trained healthcare professionals, we are committed to giving every child the best start in life.
