New 550-bed Khoo Teck Puat Hospital


Board of Directors for Khoo Teck Puat Hospital

MOH is building a regional hospital in Yishun to better serve residents from the Northern region of Singapore. Spanning over 3.4 hectares, the 550-bed hospital will offer a comprehensive range of medical and healthcare services.
The new public sector hospital will be named Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, following the promise of a donation of $125 million from the family of the late banker and philanthropist Tan Sri Khoo Teck Puat.
KTPH Private Limited has been incorporated under MOH Holdings to own and operate Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
A Board of Directors, chaired by Ms Jennie Chua, has been appointed to guide the strategic direction of Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
The Board of Directors will ensure that the hospital will be managed well with strong corporate governance to achieve financial sustainability, service excellence, and an active programme of development and innovation so that it can deliver its mission to be a hassle-free and patient-centric hospital.
MOH is pleased that Ms Mavis Khoo, representing the Khoo Teck Puat Foundation, has agreed to serve as a member of the Board. Please refer to the Annex for the full list of the Board of Directors.
Khoo Teck Puat Hospital will be run by the existing team running Alexandra Hospital and will continue to be led by Mr Liak Teng Lit, Chief Executive Officer. The incorporation of the hospital provides the team with the opportunity to try out innovative models of care delivery and coordination, as well as eliminate wastage that stands in the way of efficiency, with a view to improving healthcare for Singaporeans.
