Healthcare

Singapore’s healthcare system is well regarded internationally, providing good health outcomes and adding many healthy years of living to Singaporeans. These outcomes are made possible by excellent health services, quality infrastructure and sound policies. Most of all, the heart of what drives Healthcare is a motivated workforce that serves patients and their families with dedication and passion. Our Healthcare industry is growing, with career options that are exciting, challenging and rewarding. Working in Healthcare, you will play a vital role in safeguarding Singapore’s future by ensuring the health and well-being of our nation’s most important asset: our people. With a growing ageing population that will require more health and community care services, there are many job opportunities in diverse areas from clinical roles like nurses and therapists to non-clinical positions like centre managers and operations executives. You will be part of a growing Healthcare family working in concert with others to make a positive difference in the lives of patients. Primary Care Primary care is the foundation of our Healthcare system, anchored in the polyclinics and private medical clinics. As the first point of contact with patients in the community, family physicians and general practitioners play an important role in providing holistic care, including the management of acute and chronic illnesses, and keeping the population healthy through preventive health measures such as screening and vaccinations. Acute Care General hospitals provide multi-disciplinary inpatient, specialist outpatient, and 24-hour emergency services. There are also speciality centres that provide specialised care including cancer treatment, eye care and dental care. Community Care Community Care services are provided in community hospitals, home care and long-term residential care facilities. These are for individuals who need continued care and treatment after discharge from acute hospitals, or for community-dwelling seniors who may be frail and need assistance with their activities of daily living. Singapore’s Community Care services are expanding so that senior citizens can age well in the neighbourhoods they are familiar with.
