Johns Hopkins Outpatient and Inpatient Care 

To help patients with cancer to cope better emotionally, Johns Hopkins Singapore welcomes all family members to sit in on consultations and help patients make their treatment decisions. Family members are also welcome to stay overnight if the patient is admitted.

Educational materials on specific cancer types, treatments, management of possible side effects and other care-related issues are provided to help patients and their families make more informed choices.

The Johns Hopkins outpatient centre is located on Level 1 of Tan Tock Seng Hospital and the inpatient ward is on Level 13.

Johns Hopkins Internal Medicine 

To help manage the overall well-being of patients, the team provides a full range of internal medical consultations and treatments for general medical conditions, and also offers health screening programmes for patients to assess their current state of health.

Johns Hopkins Pharmacy 

The pharmacy provides a one-stop service for patients’ medication needs. There are two pharmacy outlets at Johns Hopkins Singapore: one at the outpatient clinic and the other at the inpatient ward. Areas of service include:
Investigation drug service — covers all aspects of investigational drug use from review to admixture, counselling and investigational drug management and accountability
Drug information — provision of drug information to patients and their family members and the healthcare team
Review of medication orders — a review of all medication orders, medication history review and reconciliation
Pharmacy admixture services — specialises in the preparation of intravenous chemotherapy and related agents
Dispensing and specialised counselling — covers dispensing of inpatient and outpatient medications, inpatient bedside discharge counselling, counselling on symptoms, and management of adverse effects to chemotherapy and related agents

Medical Social Work 

Cancer affects patients and their families in a significant way. The disruptions and emotional rollercoaster of fear, anxiety and worry can be difficult to handle. A medical social worker is therefore always available and ready to support patients and their family throughout the cancer treatment.

Medical social work services include:
Supportive counselling to help cope with the challenges of being diagnosed with cancer
Family mediation and counselling for relationship problems
Information and referrals to community resources, including elderly care/disability services, hospice care, family service centres, and support groups
Grief counselling
Financial information (for Singaporeans and permanent residents only)

Patients are welcome to approach any doctor, nurse or Patient Service Centre (PSC) staff member if they or their loved ones would like to speak to a medical social worker.

Alternatively, the centre can be contacted from Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 6pm at 65 6880 2150.
