The National University Hospital (NUH) is a specialist hospital that provides advanced leading-edge medical care. Equipped with state-of-the-art facilities as well as dedicated and well-trained staff, NUH is a major referral centre that delivers tertiary care for a wide range of medical specialties including Cardiology, Gastroenterology & Hepatology, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Oncology, Ophthalmology, Paediatrics and Orthopaedic Surgery.
Backed by substantive expertise and experience, NUH has been chosen by the Ministry of Health to develop two new national specialist centers to meet the growing need for heart and cancer treatments.
The coming together of NUH and the National University of Singapore's Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and Faculty of Dentistry under the joint entity, National University Health System (NUHS), boosts its international standing as a university hospital. This further sharpens its three-prong focus of excellence in medical care, clinical research and education to meet the healthcare needs of today and tomorrow.
In 2004, NUH became the first Singapore hospital to receive Joint Commission International (JCI) Accreditation, an international stamp for excellent clinical practices in patient care and safety. It was also the first hospital in Singapore to receive a triple ISO certification concurrently for Quality, Environmental, and Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems in 2002.
NUH is also the first and only hospital in Singapore to achieve triple ISO certification simultaneously - ISO 9001:2000 (Quality Management System); ISO 14001:1996 (Environmental Management System); and OHSAS 18001:1999 (Occupational Health & Safety Management System) in December 2002.
