The Jurong Medical Centre (JMC) is a patient-centred health hub providing services that not only meets patients’ needs, but also empowers patients to care for themselves, by offering knowledge and support.
JMC offers a range of services including outpatient specialists, diagnostic and day surgery services, chronic disease management, health screenings and promotion programmes.
Bringing specialists care into the community
An initiative by partners Alexandra Hospital (AH), National University Hospital (NUH), NHG Diagnostics and NHG Pharmacy, the JMC experiments a new way of healthcare delivery, with General Practitioners (GPs) and chronic disease management as vital components.
The JMC augments GPs’ care to patients by providing supplementary and ancillary services for all levels of complexity of patients. For the intended purpose, JMC congregates specialists (doctors/allied health), healthcare provider (tenants) and service providers (retail) under one roof. For minor illnesses, patients will be advised to see their family GPs in nearby vicinity.
JMC aims to be a convenient place that sees to the healthcare needs of patients, without them having to travel to a hospital. This also means value for money, as JMC offers quality services and packages more affordable than those offered in hospitals.
