Community Hospital in Eunos
Updated: Dec 7, 2020
Those of you who check up on the URA Masterplan (available online) when it is updated every five years would have noticed the reservation of a fairly large tract of land for a medical facility from Masterplan 2015.
In February this year, the Ministry of Health (MOH) shared with me its plans for the construction of a community hospital in the latter half of the decade in the Eunos ward of Aljunied GRC.
Today, MOH has officially announced its plans to build the facility and confirmed that it will be run by SingHealth. A tender to procure design consultants will be called in the coming weeks and the consultants are expected to commence work on the hospital design from mid-2021 onwards.
Combined with the opening of the Kaki Bukit Polyclinic in the second half of 2024 as announced earlier close to the Kaki Bukit MRT station, the medical needs of Eunos residents will be very well-served in the years to come.
