Vision, Mission, Purpose & Values

As Singapore's Academic Health System, the National University Health System (NUHS) is committed to putting people at the centre of everything we do as we care for each other and everyone we serve to deliver Incredible Care and Health, Together.

To deliver our Vision and Mission, our Leadership chose six core values to guide us - they are who we are, what we stand for and what we will never compromise on. Our values of teamwork, respect, integrity, compassion, excellence and patient-centredness inspire our culture and guide the decisions that we make every day.



A Healthy Community -
Shaping Medicine, Transforming Care

NUHS, as an Academic Health System, will improve the health of our community through better and more cost-effective care, nurturing the next generation of healthcare professionals, world class research and empowering people to take ownership of their health.



We advance health by synergising care, education and research, in partnership with patients and the community.
We strive to improve the health of our community by combining and harnessing strengths in clinical care, education and research to deliver quality and value. We put patients first, and work closely with partners including families, volunteers and organisations.

We Care as OneNUHS for each other and everyone we serve. We choose to be incredible, by doing better every day.
