Ardennes, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Catalist-listed Livingstone Health’s 51%-held Phoenix Medical Group, has launched Ardennes Healthcare on May 21.
Ardennes Healthcare is a one-stop health screening and radiology centre that’s located on the second floor of Paya Lebar Square.
It will offer laboratory and radiology-based services such as blood tests, X-rays and ultrasound to its corporate clients as well as middle-upper professionals, managers, executives and technicians (PMETs).
Ardennes, which is the first new centre to be opened by Livingstone Health since the completion of its reverse takeover on Feb 5, 2021, will be led by an experienced clinical team, says the group.
Patients who have abnormalities picked up during their screening at Ardennes can be referred to the group’s list of specialists for treatment.

Ardennes says it expects to increase its range of services to include mammography and bone density scans over the next financial year ending March 31, 2022.
“As life expectancy and affluence increase, early detection of illnesses has become more important. Singapore has an ageing population that desires quality of life, and hence the demand for health screenings is expected to rise. Ardennes hope to offer a range of dedicated services to meet the needs of this growing pool of patients so that they can lead healthier lives even as they age,” says Dr Chua Hshan Cher, co-founder of Phoenix Medical Group.
“The healthcare screening service is in line with the group’s mission to offer multi-disciplinary healthcare. Patients will receive a comprehensive screenshot of their health in a convenient and timely manner while having the option to be referred to a trusted network of specialists should the need arise,” says Dr Wilson Tay, CEO of Livingstone Health.
“Ardennes will also serve as a platform to strengthen the Group’s ecosystem, increasing patient referrals for our primary and tertiary healthcare services. I am confident that Ardennes will add value to patients, as well as the group’s ecosystem by providing us with greater outreach to patients,” he adds.
