Request for Change in Accommodation

You can request for a transfer to a different ward type (subject to availability of beds) under the following conditions:
  • Private Wards

    All charges (except daily standard ward charge) incurred at the lower ward type will be levied at the higher ward type from the date of admission. Follow-up at Specialist Outpatient Clinics after discharge will be charged at private rates. 
  • Subsidised Wards

    If you satisfy the criteria of a Means Test, the subsidised rates will apply from the date of your transfer.

Hospital Overstayers

When you are certified fit for discharge but insist on staying in the ward, you will be charged at full cost for the period of your overstay.

The overstay charges will commence from the 7th calendar day of the date of certification as fit for discharge or from the 7th calendar day after the hospital has found a placement in a step-down care facility.

Early admission

If you are feeling unwell and require urgent medical treatment, please go to the nearest Accident & Emergency Department for immediate medical treatment.
