The Elective Care Centre, designed by DPA, to meet Singapore’s increasing healthcare demand


Designed by DP Architects, The Elective Care Centre (ECC), located within the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) campus, held its groundbreaking ceremony on 21 January 2020. Slated for completion in 2026, the ECC will focus on non-emergency surgery, thereby freeing up resources in the main hospital for emergency cases and complex surgical procedures.The ECC will also house the new National Dental Centre that uses new technologies to give patients better treatment with increased efficiency. It will also be designed to better serve the needs of elderly patients.

As part of the larger medical campus, significant design emphasis has also been placed on connectivity to buildings outside of the development. Services with a high volume of patients are moved closer to Outram Park MRT station, making SGH more accessible to patients and visitors. Thus, the site establishes a key urban axis to achieve the goal of an integrated campus.
