National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS)
At the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS), we see a high volume of cardiac patients locally. The heavy workload enables us to accumulate experience through the diversity of heart conditions treated, in particular, the complex cases. Many of our doctors were trained in overseas hospitals such as the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, USA, the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA, and the Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA. They are also fellows of international societies such as the American College of Cardiology, USA, the Royal College of Physicians, UK and the Royal College of Surgeons, UK.
As the leading specialist centre for cardiovascular disease, we are committed to stay abreast of medical advancements. This is evident in our numerous ‘firsts’ including the first heart transplant in Singapore in 1990, the first radiofrequency catheter ablation procedure in Singapore and ASEAN in 1991 and the first left ventricular assist device implantation in Singapore and Southeast Asia in 2001, to mention a few.
