SINGAPORE – A new $820 million National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS) building located within the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) campus – with twice the capacity of the centre’s previous premises – officially opened on Thursday, at a ceremony officiated by Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong.

The state-of-the-art facility will provide more comprehensive and holistic care for the growing pool of cancer patients here. It has enhanced facilities for cancer care, rehabilitation, research and education.

One in four Singaporeans is likely to get some form of cancer over his lifetime, and close to 40 per cent diagnosed with cancer currently are aged 70 and above, said Mr Wong.
