The team includes infectious-disease physicians, epidemiologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other health professionals. The team is equipped to manage various infections ranging in complexity and provide consultative care for patients with particularly challenging problems in the diagnosis, management and therapy of various infectious diseases.
These infections may be bacterial, viral, fungal or parasitic in origin, and may be acquired locally from the community or abroad during travel. Our Infectious Diseases service at SKH is committed to working together with other physicians in the community to improve the overall population’s health care and quality of life by enhancing the application of its patient care delivery. Along with diagnosing and treating a wide array of infections and infectious disease, our team of infectious disease specialists go to great lengths to prevent infections long before they occur. This is done through purposeful health education in the community, which our team of medical staff are actively involved in.

Infectious disease is an illness caused by the spread of prions or micro-organisms (bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites) to humans, animals or the environment, including food and water.
At Sengkang General Hospital, we take preventative medicine very seriously and are always striving to prevent disease long before it occurs. Some good ways to prevent infectious diseases include washing your hands often, using antibiotics as prescribed by your doctor, getting vaccinated, being conscious about your food preparation, not sharing personal items, practising safe sex, and staying at home when you feel like you might have an infection or illness coming on.
