The VIC Day Centre is our group’s latest concept and one of its kind in Singapore. Launched in April 2020 and located at Novena Specialist Center, we have developed a Centre where patients can be seen by our Specialists, undergo diagnostic tests and if necessary, undergo minimally invasive endovascular/interventional procedures without the need for hospital admission and in a seamless manner at one location without the need to travel to different locations for care. Patients will also receive highly personalised and professional care for speedy post-operative recovery.
Our one-stop Centre sits on 4000 square feet and houses a hybrid operating theatre, a recovery suite, a Vascular Studies Lab, a treatment room and consultation rooms. Our hybrid operating theatre is fitted with the latest Philips Azurion Clarity Flexarm C20 Advanced Fluroscopy System which is the first of its kind to be installed in Asia and Singapore. The Philips Azurion Flexarm which is CE marked and has received 510k clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provides advanced imaging during endovascular and interventional procedures. As a result procedures are carried out with increased safety, increased treatment efficacy and are more efficient. We are very excited to work with Philips as their Centre of Reference and explore new imaging opportunities to achieve clinical excellence and enhance patient care.
As patient safety remains one of the key focus of our Centre, we have installed Hepa-air filtration system in our hybrid operating theatre to ensure excellent air quality during procedures to ensure minimal risk of infection. Stringent tests for bacterial count, particle count and air exchange rates also ensure a safe environment for our patients.
Our Centre which is fully accredited and licensed by the Ministry of Health Singapore is also a Medisave accredited facility for patients who wish to utilise their Medisave funds for procedures done at our Centre.
