Our History

Our Story

Our specialist clinics in infectious diseases began operations more than 20 years ago, starting initially at Gleneagles Medical Centre in 1999 before expanding to Mount Elizabeth (Orchard) Medical Centre in 2000 and then to Farrer Park Medical Centre (Connexion) in 2015. Todate, we have treated over 35,000 private patients.

We have been involved in the care of patients with complicated medical problems including severe sepsis, multiple-organ failure related to sepsis and infections in patients with cancer, transplants, HIV,Covid-19 etc. In particular, we work closely with other medical specialists and surgeons in the management of patients with complicated medical problems. Our specialists consult on inpatients at private hospitals in Singapore including Gleneagles, Mount Elizabeth Novena, Mount Elizabeth (Orchard), Mount Alvernia and Farrer Park Hospital.

Our specialist clinics serve as a one stop centres for the investigation and treatment of a wide range of infections. We also provide vaccinations and pre-travel advice. Our patients include Singapore residents and expatriates, as well those who come from regional countries.

Between 2021 to 2022, our ID Physicians were tasked to manage 2 Covid Treatment Facilities to look after patients infected with Covid-19.  In addition, we also provided teleconsultation to locals and foreigners who could not travel.  Our clinic at Gleneagles Medical Centre, is also a MOH approved PCR swab and ART testing site offering, both physical and offsite testing.

In addition to providing private care to our patients at our clinics, our doctors continue to serve as visiting consultants to public hospitals and contribute to teaching of the senior residents specialising in infectious diseases. We also continue to conduct CME for family practitioners under our ‘Meet The Infectious Disease Specialists’ seminars.

Since 2009 ( except for 2020 and 2021 during the Covid-19 pandemic) as part of a corporate social responsibility activity we gave free influenza vaccinations to elderly residents of Kreta Ayer Constituency.  Our group donated the influenza vaccines, and together with our nurses and staff as well as the teams from Buddha Tooth Relic Temple (BTRTS), Kreta Ayer Senior Citizens Activity Centre and Metta Welfare Association helped to coordinate the event including ferrying the 250 to 350 elderly residents from the surrounding Kreta Ayer area to the Temple to receive their annual flu vaccinations.
