Tour of Yishun Community Hospital
On Thursday morning, the Healthcare Committee toured the facility of Yishun Community Hospital (YCH). YCH contains approximately 428-beds for patients and offers facilities to accomodate rehabilitative, dementia and palliative care treatment. Also, YCH is strategically located beside Khoo Teck Phuat Hospital to to allow both hospitals to coordinate their efforts to free up beds for acute patients. Patients who are not classified as requiring the intensive care services or facilities of an acute-care hospital may be hosted at the YCH. The objective of YCH would be to use therapeutic solutions to assist the recovery efforts of patients and allow them to function independently daily.
