About NUHS

Vision, Mission & 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.


To deliver Incredible Care & Health, Together!


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

Our Leadership Commitment to Staff Wellbeing

NUHS is committed to the wellbeing of all our people. Taking good care of our staff is as important as providing good care for our patients. We seek to be the best workplace we can be where staff find meaning in what they do, feel connected to one another, see opportunities for growth, and take pride in being a member of the NUHS family.

We build a culture and work environment where staff are respected, fairly treated, valued for their contributions and feel safe to speak up. We focus on ensuring adequate resources, improving work processes, developing staff and building individual resilience to enable them to perform at their best.

We lead by example in caring for each other and taking personal responsibility for our wellbeing as we work together to deliver incredible care and health to our community.


We depend on each other to get the job done, and others can count on us.

We value the contributions, views and interests of others, and treat all with dignity.

We do the right thing, always.

We understand what our patients and loved ones are going through; we will do all we can to help them.

We pursue the highest standards in all that we do; we continually learn and innovate for better outcomes.

We design and deliver care around the needs of our patients and their caregivers.
