Singapore medical tourism: Farrer Park healthcare and hospitality complex will open in 2013

 

Connexion at Farrer Park will be one of the world's first integrated healthcare and hospitality complexes with Farrer Park Medical Centre, Farrer Park Hospital, and One Farrer, a luxury hotel with wellness and conference facilities. Connexion is expected to be fully operational in 2013 for locals and medical tourists. The developers have changed their name from Singapore HealthPartners to The Farrer Park Company to tie all Farrer Park facilities under one clear identity.

Connexion at Farrer Park is built directly above the Farrer Park MRT Station. It has a six-storey centre with two 20-storey high-rise wings. The west wing houses Farrer Park Medical Centre while the east wing combines Farrer Park Hospital and the hotel. Hotel guests can enjoy the privacy and facilities of a distinctly separate hotel with easy and rapid access to medical facilities within the same complex.

Farrer Park Medical Centre will be home to more than 200 medical specialists occupying 189 medical consultation suites. The physicians and surgeons will be specialists in diverse medical fields. Outpatients have the choice of recuperating and resting in the comfort and privacy of their hotel rooms at One Farrer after a day surgery or a routine check-up.

Farrer Park Hospital is one of the first private hospitals to be built ground-up in Singapore in the last 30 years. As a wholly new development, it is able to incorporate and effectively integrate the tremendous advances in hospital design and medical technology that have transformed healthcare in the past three decades. It will have 11 operating theatres, three day surgery units with a total of 60 attached beds, a 23-bed intensive care unit with state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging services, three endoscopy suites, a radiotherapy department, clinical laboratories, a full-service pharmacy and the most advanced implementation of hospital information technology.

A unique feature of Connexion is the twinning of Farrer Park Hospital with luxury hotel One Farrer that offers guests accommodations ranging from serviced apartments to villas to standard hotel rooms. One Farrer will have a large ballroom and banquet hall, seminar rooms, conference facilities, two large spas, two gymnasiums, swimming pools, a ground-floor retail arcade and a range of food and beverage outlets.

Travellers to Singapore, who have special health requirements such as kidney dialysis, frequent respiratory care, or the need for regular injections and infusions, can opt to stay in One Farrer with essential medical support amenities at their doorstep. Family and friends, who provide significant emotional and physical support, can stay in the same hotel.

On the ground level of Connexion, there will be a mix of lifestyle retail, amenities and services for the leisure, business and medical tourism traveller.
