The National University Health System (NUHS) is an integrated Academic Health System and Regional Health System in Singapore that delivers value-driven, innovative and sustainable healthcare.
Throughout the history of our institutions, our staff has worked across the health system to advance the tripartite missions of achieving clinical excellence, developing the next generation of healthcare professionals, and changing the natural history of chronic diseases through research.
At NUHS, we leverage our unique position as an academic health system to tap on the wealth of resources residing within the whole of the National University of Singapore (NUS). Through collaborations with NUS faculties, we are able to draw upon their academic, research and creative capabilities to develop solutions for existing and emerging health and healthcare needs of the Singapore population.
As part of our regional health system responsibility, we work in close collaboration with community hospitals, general practitioners, family medicine clinics, nursing homes and other community and social partners to provide integrated care to the community.
Institutions in the NUHS group include tertiary, acute and community hospitals - National University Hospital (NUH), Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, Jurong Community Hospital and Alexandra Hospital (2018); National Specialty Centres - National University Cancer Institute, Singapore (NCIS), National University Heart Centre, Singapore (NUHCS) and National University Centre for Oral Health, Singapore (NUCOHS) (2019); a polyclinic group - the National University Polyclinics (NUP); a medical centre – Jurong Medical Centre; and academic health sciences institutions – NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (including the Alice Lee Centre for Nursing Studies), NUS Faculty of Dentistry and NUS Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health.
With member institutions under one academic health system, NUHS creates synergies as a fully integrated cluster to provide seamless care from prevention to home care, and with our academic institutions, to continue to develop solutions for Singapore’s healthcare challenges, and nurture the next generation of healthcare professionals.
