This partnership is in line with StarMed’s mission to simplify healthcare delivery, heeding the call to improve quality of care while reducing cost and wait time. As an ambulatory care centre, StarMed provides outpatient and overnight care for patients, including consultation, diagnostics, radiology, treatment, endoscopy, surgery and nursing care, all under one roof. StarMed’s alternative mode of healthcare delivery and specialised medical facilities enables medical procedures and surgeries to be performed outside of hospitals, while providing patients with quality, convenience and savings. With same-day discharge and faster treatment times, there is a lower chance of patients being exposed to high-risk patients with contagious conditions and a reduced risk of cross-infections.

With the collaboration, Prudential’s eligible policyholders can now gain access to StarMed’s integrated specialist services with appointment booking via Prudential’s PRUPanel Connect team within 3 working days. They can also enjoy up to SGD15,000 in cashless medical services and a $15 transport benefit if they undergo day surgery at StarMed.

To ensure a seamless patient experience at StarMed Specialist Centre, StarMed is fitted out with technologically-enhanced medical facilities and equipment. These include a radiology centre with MRI and CT scanners, as well as operating theatres and procedural suites that are comprehensively set up with endoscopic, laparoscopic and imaging equipment. With every stage of the treatment and recuperation journey meticulously designed and thought-out, patients and their families benefit from the shorter turnaround time while ensuring utmost privacy and comfort throughout their short stay at StarMed.

As Dr Louis Tan, Chief Executive Officer of StarMed, said: “StarMed was set up with a vision of simplifying the delivery of good quality and affordable specialist healthcare in Singapore; with the goal of always giving patients a peace of mind through prompt diagnosis and meticulous management of care outcomes and costs.”
