Getting to National Heart Centre Singapore

Vehicles going to National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) are recommended to enter via Hospital Drive.

Vehicles going to the SGH Emergency Dept will not be affected. There will be no drop-off/pick-up at SGH Block 3 including delivery services. Vehicles going to/from SGH Block 4, Bowyer Block Car Park C and National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) will be diverted to use 3rd Hospital Avenue, along Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC) and Diabetes & Metabolism Centre (DMC).
