Beginnings and Milestones
Jointly owned by a Singaporean and Indonesian businessmen, construction of Mount Elizabeth Hospital and Medical Centre started in 1976. On 8 December 1979, the hospital and medical centre were officially opened.
In the same year on 20 December, the first baby girl was born at Mount Elizabeth and her parents named her "Elizabeth", after the hospital.
In June 1985, National Medical Enterprises Incorporated (NME), the largest healthcare company in the United States of America (USA) at that time, bought Mount Elizabeth Hospital.
It drew upon the management expertise from USA and strived to provide the best tertiary hospital services in Singapore and the region. NME also purchased East Shore Hospital in November 1989.
Mount Elizabeth Hospital is recognised throughout the region for its specialty services and excellent physicians. It offers cardiology, neurosciences, and many other tertiary services. It has the first private cancer centre in the region and was the first private hospital in Singapore to offer cardiac catheterisation, cardiac and neurosurgery and other advanced medical procedures.
To cope with the increasing demand for medical suites as more specialists in the government hospitals leave to join Mount Elizabeth Hospital and Medical Centre, a new wing was added to the medical centre in 1992. Besides medical suites, the new wing also added more than 100 new car park lots to the facility.
The Brunei royal family built the Royal Suite in Mount Elizabeth Hospital in 1993 for their private utilisation. It has two suites, a lodger room (for family or doctor in attendance) and a lounge cum conference room with attached pantry and bathrooms. All rooms come with 24-hour private nurse, security and butler service. This suite is now available to all members of the public who require a higher level of comfort during their hospital stay.
In 1994, Mount Elizabeth Hospital was awarded the Asian Management Award for People Development and Management. Given by the Asian Institute of Management, Far Eastern Economic Review, it aims to promote management excellence in Asia.
In 1995, Parkway Holdings Ltd, which already owned another leading tertiary acute care hospital in Singapore, Gleneagles Hospital, bought Mount Elizabeth Hospital and East Shore Hospital. This makes Parkway Holdings Ltd, the largest private healthcare organisation in Singapore.
In 1998, Mount Elizabeth hospital was awarded the Singapore Quality Class - an award which recognises organisations which have attained a commendable level of performance in the journey towards business excellence.
Having established itself as the premier healthcare facility with a reputation for quality services, Mount Elizabeth Hospital is committed to develop its staff through continuous training and development.
