The local patient load and a new contract for air borders screening services from the Ministry of Health (MOH) and Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) bolstered Raffles’ healthcare services division.

Raffles Medical also opened the new Changi Airport Terminal 4 and Transit 4 clinics in the fourth quarter of 2017 along with a new MediConcierge service. The company shared that the current Raffles Medical on Level 2 of Raffles Hospital will be expanded in May 2018 to co-locate with Raffles Health Check.
