JurongHealth Campus embarked on an exciting journey to arrive at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (NTFGH). We started planning on a clean slate and focused on a hospital design that was built around patients to offer integrated care and services. Breaking new ground, NTFGH and Jurong Community Hospital are the first hospitals in Singapore to be designed and built together from the ground up as an integrated healthcare development. They were envisioned to transform the way healthcare is provided to the community and designed to deliver patient-centred services in a seamless and integrated manner. They complement each other for better patient care, greater efficiency and convenience. The hospital planning process took into account how patient care, treatment and rehabilitation may continue seamlessly between the two hospitals. The 700-bed NTFGH showcases revolutionary features and processes, some of which are a first in Singapore.

We began in 1992 as the Care Liaison Services (CLS) under Ministry of Health (MOH) to coordinate and facilitate the placement of elderly sick to nursing homes and chronic sick units. In 2001, CLS became the Integrated Care Services (ICS) and expanded to take on a greater role in discharge planning and facilitate the transition of patients from hospitals to the community.

ICS was then renamed the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) in 2008, and a year later, AIC was established as an independent corporate entity under MOH Holdings, and assumed the role of National Care Integrator. Today, AIC continues in what we are tasked and seeks to create a vibrant care community enabling people to live well and age gracefully. We work closely with Community Care partners in supporting them in service development and manpower capability building to raise the quality of care and bringing care support closer to those in need.
