Name and Constituency of Member of Parliament
Mr Chua Kheng Wee Louis
MP for Sengkang GRC
Question No. 2825
To ask the Minister for Health (a) whether the Ministry has data on the expected increase in the number of private hospital bed capacity in the next five years and, if so, what is the number; and (b) whether there are any plans to call for the tender of additional hospitals to supplement the projected increase in public hospital bed capacity.
1 MOH does not have the projected capacity of private hospitals as they are driven by commercial and other considerations.
2 Nonetheless, MOH does facilitate the development of private hospitals which operating model can complement that of public healthcare institutions. We will announce such plans whenever they are available and ready.
