Most expensive private hospital to open in 2nd half, 2012

By Melissa Pang
Parkway Pantai's most expensive investment in Singapore to date - the Parkway Novena Hospital - is on track to open in the second half of 2012.
The $2 billion medical centre is the most expensive private hospital to be built in Singapore in the last 30 years, and will house 333 single-bed only wards.
The hospital held its topping up ceremony on Tuesday to mark its structural completion. Health Minister Gan Kim Yong was guest of honour at the event.
In a speech, Parkway Pantai chairman Mohammed Azlan Hashim said Parkway Novena will be the 'crown jewel' of the group's network of hospitals.

these are loved by the super rich patients from the region and MENA

medical tourism is a growth industry

Mount E, Raffles Hospital and Gleneagles are too old fashioned liao, and too stereo-typed, and Specialist Centre has become shopping mall.........

this luxury medical centre is much needed and long overdue, else the $$ will go to M'sia and Thailand (already gone much)

Read something about this suite called 'Chairman Suite' which costs almost $13000 a night. Size of 5 room flat, with 2 bedrooms and even a resting area for round the clock guards and 5 meals a day...erm, birds nest and abalone?
For the rich and famous.

why so ex ?
inside hospital ward got golden tap for patients to wash hands ?

when a person is sick suffering from cancer, last thing they want is to clock up expensive hospital bills treatment, even if they're very rich. They just want to know:-

i) got cure or not ?

ii) if no cure (eg: advanced stage of cancer cells spreading rapidly to other organs) - at the very most, how many more months to live ?

iii) how to reduce pain from chemotheraphy treatment, morphine pharmaceutical drugs injection, etc?

iv) any miracle healing, if doctor tell patients "No hope" ?

this hospital is designed to rip rich patients off $.
ask youself:- do they really have the heart or mood to treat patients cheaply ?

sometimes, i wonder - where are the doctors of Korean "Da Chang Jin" type nowadays ? non existant ? What happen to their ideal / morals (if any), when they first pledge to be a doctor in the first case, to heal the sick regardless of poverty or condition ? if $ is what they are after, better that they become Investment bankers, instead of becoming medical doctor.
