Integrated healthcare provider Pacific Healthcare Holdings has officially opened its second nursing home in Bukit Panjang today. The five-storry purpose-built facility started operations late last year with 105 beds. When fully operational, it can take in 250 residents for both long term convalescent care, as well as short-term respite services.

Lim Boon Heng, Minister, Prime Minister’s Office and Chairman of the Ministerial Committee on Ageing officiated at the grand opening of the new facility which is within walking distance from the LRT Senja Station.

The new facility is designed to inspire confidence and peace of mind among residents and their families. The open atrium and skylight, as well as the lush tropical garden allow residents to relax and recuperate in a tranquil environment, said the company.
The home has a team of well-qualified and dedicated nursing staff to attend to the needs of residents. There is also a Rehabilitation Centre providing specialised treatment including occupational and speech therapy.

Dr William Chong, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Healthcare Holdings, said, “Pacific Healthcare Nursing Home will continue to provide a high level of eldercare at affordable prices as part of our commitment to serving the community at large.”
