Johns Hopkins Singapore
Johns Hopkins International Medical Center – Located in a private pavilion of the Tan Tock Seng Hospital, JHM International provides care in a 30 bed inpatient unit, and a large outpatient chemotherapy suite with a large mix of international patients seeking care for a variety of oncology related diagnoses. Operating since 1999, the facility recently doubled its capacity. The original site for the JH International Medical Center was the National University Hospital, however, due to growth the facility moved to Tan Tock Seng Hospital in May 2005. Johns Hopkins Singapore is currently working on expanding the scope of its services to include respiratory medicine.
Johns Hopkins Singapore – Research Activities - Funded through an initial 5-year US$35 M grant by the Singapore Government in 1998, Johns Hopkins has established and implemented a clinical and translational research program. In 2004, the grant was renewed and expanded for an additional 5 years at US$50 million with an added element of providing educational programs for Ph.D. students.
Joint Commission Accreditation – Singapore – JHI provided consulting and technical assistance to our partners in Singapore to develop systems and standards to prepare for and ultimately receive Joint Commission International Accreditation. While Johns Hopkins – NUH International Medical Centre had already been the first institution in Singapore to receive ISO accreditation, the 2004 JCI accreditation also represented the first time an institution had received certification in quality and safety by JCI. Completed in the spring of 2004
