Bio

The history of Mount Alvernia Hospital began in 1949 with the arrival of Sister Mary Angela McBrien, Sister Mary Camillus Walsh and Sister Mary Baptista Hennessy. Back then, public hospitals were overcrowded and understaffed. The nuns from the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood (FMDM) who worked at the hospital felt that more could be done to bridge the gap. So pooling their savings and salaries, the FMDM Sisters started a core fund and canvassed for donations. Many generous individuals and companies responded to the call and eventually, enough was collected to build a new hospital. The hospital was officially opened on March 4, 1961 with 60 beds. Today, the hospital is a 304-bed general acute care medical institution; with tertiary medical capabilities and two multi-disciplinary medical specialist centres. The hospital is supported by over 1,200 accredited doctors, with about 170 specialist doctors located on the campus. As the hospital develops, more medical suites will be built and the pool of doctors is expected to grow. An exempt charity, the hospital’s annual surplus goes into developing and upgrading the hospital, supporting the Assisi Hospice and community outreach activities.

I came in at night and got admitted promptly. (My doctor is a little annoying but he is just a visiting doctor... oh well).

Thoughtful selection of meals (I've tried them all, from chinese, western to malay. I find malay the least bland).

The nurses are wonderful.

Great Catholic hospital. There's a chapel and some historical needlework, exhibits and statues. I like it. Very peaceful.

Child was born here. Nurses are brisk but extremely helpful and friendly.
Need to know your way around and ensure to find all the hidden costs or you will be caught off guard. While it is vaguely explained there in the registration phase. You should still clarify.
Service response is a little little bit slow but still very acceptable.

Mount Alvernia is one of the best hospitals for giving birth. The ladies in my family prefer Mt A to other private hospitals because of the good nurses and service.

My son came down with acute appendicitis recently and had to undergo an emergency operation at Mount Alvernia Hospital. He was due to take his A-level physics examination the following day and we decided that he should take the paper in the hospital. We would like to show our appreciation to the staff at St Clare’s Ward, Mount Alvernia Hospital, for making this possible. 

They allocated a big single room, removed the bed, put a desk in its place and a “silence” notice on the door for my son to take his paper.

Went in e night for child recurrent fever and cough. Child was delivered there with good experience. But after x ray e doc can't read and confirm the finding , need wait two days for radiologist to come back after PH. Signed and explained by a nurse to pay $50 for X-ray, $20 for blood test but at payment was told these are just surcharges , paid $300 plus for consultation X-ray and blood test. Yet need wait another two days to know result. Should have gone to kk. Regret the choices .

Generally, this hospital has very responsive and caring nurses. Pleasant stay when I gave birth to my first child in January. It'd be perfect if all their nurses provide equally good service!

Confined for 2 days, admission and discharge was smooth. Nursing staff at St Francis ward are friendly and provided superb nursing care, doctors are great and facility is top notch. However, I was bitten by mosquitoes while inside the ward. Unpleasant experience with the Business Office department on my hospital claims and didn’t even keep in touch with me during the claims cancellation outcome. Mt A record shows cancelled however GE processed the claim and even sent disbursement summary. Waited for the refund for almost two weeks but no money was wired back to my credit cards. I really have to call GE and Mt A to know whats happening. Mt A BO kept me waiting for the documents to be mailed to me, thus unable to file the hospital claim with my employer.
Business Officers who handled my case, requests & calls provided very lousy service.

This is the only hospital I would take my kids to. There used to be limited single-rooms in the children's wards, but after renovation, about 90% of rooms are single-bedders. The double rooms are more for the convenience of parents who are admitting 2 kids. This is a fantastic arrangement as it's crazy difficult to handle a crying toddler in pain yet trying to be conscientious of the neighbouring kid.

My kids were delivered here and we used their A&E services twice. They are fast, efficient and economical. The staff are courteous and professional. Best hospital in Singapore!

Went to visit a friend and his wife who gave birth here last night. Generally, it is a quiet hospital. Not too crowded but has plenty of parking space. Very minimal security but staff are very friendly and attentive. Signage however are quite lacking and the arrows are quite misleading. Lifts are definitely faster but the corridors are dimly lit and quiet w doors squicking. Eerie indeed. But the wards and rooms are well furnished. Single rooms are not as spacious. Feels very cramp as compared to other hospitals.
