Singapore is continuing to develop its medical tourism in an attempt to capture an ever-larger share of this lucrative new market. In September 2008, Singapore achieved a quality score in healthcare that puts it on par with the most medically-advanced countries in the world. Singapore is currently ranked the sixth best nation in the world for its medical advances and the best in Asia by the World Health Organization.
Connections at Farrer Park is a major new development on the horizon. The 19-story fully-integrated mediplex will open in 2010 and will feature a hospital, private medical suites and a full-service hotel for patients as well as care-givers. The mediplex will offer a full spectrum of patient-oriented facilities and services, with some of the region's best physicians and teaching/conference facilities to host medical meetings and exhibitions.
