KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital has evolved over the decades, since its founding in 1858, into a leader in Obstetrics, Gynaecology, Paediatrics and Neonatology.
Today, the 160-year-old hospital is a referral centre providing tertiary services to handle high-risk conditions in women and children. More than 500 specialists adopt a compassionate, multi-disciplinary and holistic approach to treatment, and harness the latest medical innovations and technology to deliver the best medical care possible.
Accredited by Joint Commission International as an Academic Medical Centre, KKH believes that world-class clinical training and research are imperative in raising the standard of care. Hence, the Hospital has adopted a culture of innovation as it achieves world-class clinical leadership. KKH is a major teaching hospital for Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School, Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine.
The 830-bed hospital also runs the largest specialist training programme for Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Paediatrics in Singapore. Both programmes are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education International (ACGME-I), and are highly rated for the high quality of clinical teaching and the commitment to translational research.
