Inpatient Services & Facilities
St Luke’s Hospital is well-equipped with a wide range of services and facilities for all patients. Our wards are staffed by multi-disciplinary care teams that comprise doctors, nurses, therapists, pharmacists, dieticians, medical social workers and pastoral care staff.
Join us on this tour, to take a look inside our hospital as we introduce our inpatient care.
Patients who require rehabilitation care or sub-acute care may be warded in our general:
- Rehabilitation care: for patients who require assistance to work on their physical function through physiotherapy, occupational therapy and/or other forms of therapy, before reintegrating into the community.
- Sub-acute care: for patients recovering from sub-acute medical conditions, and require an additional short-term period of medical stabilisation, nursing and therapy-focused care.
We have a total of seven general wards. A multi-disciplinary team of doctors, nurses, therapists and other allied health professionals cares for patients in each ward.
In addition, we have specialist services provided by Visiting Consultants

Art and Music Therapy are also available, depending on patients’ needs.

Rehabilitation helps our patients regain their ability to carry out day-to-day activities (i.e. balancing and walking, feeding, speech and toileting). Depending on the patient’s conditions and needs, our therapists will provide an individualised therapy programme that will facilitate safe discharge back to home.
Our inpatient gym is equipped with mobility training devices such as the G-EO System and robotic exoskeleton which are used for suitable patients. In our inpatient gym, we also have supported ambulation system. This system provides a safe ambulation environment for both therapist and patient. Without the fear of falling, patients can focus more fully on their tasks of gait and balance.
We offer simulations within the Inpatient Gym to help patients regain confidence upon discharge. They are:
- “Supermarket” corner – prepares patients whose goal is to be able to do grocery shopping upon discharge
- “Traffic light” simulation – helps patients gauge their speed of walking
- Simulated toilet training – for caregivers to help patients with their daily needs
Our inpatient pharmacy provides the following services:
- Dispensing of medications
- Medication reconciliation to optimise patients’ clinical conditions
- Medication Review
- Medication counselling to provide patients knowledge about their medications
