Mount Elizabeth Novena is the newest and highest-end hospital of the Parkway group in Singapore. The hospital’s unparalleled rooms, facilities, and medical technology (JCI accreditation) continue to make it the top choice for many patients who can afford it or have the necessary insurance coverage.

Based on our client feedback, here are 3 reasons why they choose Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital:

3. State-of-the-art technology

  • Hybrid operating theatre: Mount Elizabeth Novena hospital is the first private hospital in Singapore to have the hybrid operating theatre. The key unique features of this new theatre is the integration of high-tech scanning equipment such as computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines that enables surgeons to perform advanced surgeries in a minimally invasive and safe manner. Ultimately, this leads to shorter recovery time and better patient outcomes.
  • TrueBeam STx System: Using radiosurgery and radiotherapy, this system is specially designed to advance the treatment of lung, breast, intracranial, prostate, head and neck, and other types of cancer, especially inoperable cancers. Radiosurgery is a precise method that carefully shapes high-energy radiation beams to attack a tumour from outside the body, without performing surgery. Radiotherapy delivers large doses of energy to the tumours with great precision, allowing the treatment of many inoperable tumours, such as those in the brain or those that are close to the spinal cord, including tumours of the lung, liver, or pancreas, which are subject to respiratory motion during treatment.
