Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands integrated resort has already put itself on the map for gaming, shopping, and fine dining. With the February opening of the MW Medical Centre (65/6220-0622; mwmedical.com.sg), it can now boast 24-hour health care, too.
Situated just above the ice rink at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, the 372-square-meter clinic is perfectly positioned to treat the sprains and bruises of over-ambitious skaters. Its primary focus, though, is on catering to the medical needs of time-pressed executives based in the Central Business District, and tending to the legions of business and leisure travelers who pass through Marina Bay Sands and other nearby hotels.
A wide range of on-site services is available around the clock, ranging from routine medical screenings and travel immunizations to X-rays, lab tests, and physical therapy. The clinic also provides a medical concierge service, arranging appointments with specialists across Singapore, providing interpreters, and generally ensuring a hassle-free experience.
MW Medical also offers mobile services, dispatching doctors, nurses, and physical therapists any time of the day or night. Business travelers can schedule a doctor’s appointment between meetings or arrange to have prescriptions delivered to a boardroom, while holidaymakers can get their health care needs met without ever leaving their hotel rooms. –Angela Leenhouts
