Singapore Neonatal Resuscitation Course


Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is the largest facility in Singapore that treats premature babies and infants, including those referred from other hospitals.

KKH has one of the lowest mortality rates in the world, at 1.99 per 1,000 live births. This outcome has been made possible by close coordination between our perinatal and neonatal teams to manage high-risk pregnancies and deliveries and extend timely and advanced neonatal care to the newborn.
