At the end of 2008 we received information about the plan of expansion of a new building for ICU, NICU, PICU and OT. This is a building dedicated to the founder, called Alkema Memorial Building. We tried to offer ceiling pendant as solution for OT and ICU, but the concept was still quite new so the users were not familiar with the utilization of ceiling pendants outside of OT. At the beginning of 2009 we invited the ICU and OT users to have a site visit to our pendant installations in other hospitals and explained in more details about the utilization of pendants in ICU as space and workflow management solution, not just ceiling extension arms to hold equipments, therefore it is applicable also in ICU not only in OT.
At that time the progress of the building was already 50% built, and after many approaches finally we succeeded in convincing the users. In April 2009 during the Board of Directors meeting, the users requested to look into purchasing ceiling pendants for ICU and OT.

The new National Heart Centre Singapore is now a 12 storey building with a floor space of 48,000 square meters, increasing clinic capacity two fold.
The new building was designed with aim to reduce 30 percent reduction in energy consumption due to direct west facing façade, extensive natural ventilation in the concourse area, installation of an efficient air-conditioning plant and use of regenerative lifts. This translates to annual energy savings of an estimated S$1.3 Million and a drop in carbon emission by 3,000 tons yearly. With key focus on seamless care delivery, the new building also feature self-registration kiosks and one stop payment system to reduce patient waiting time. To help patients take charge of their heart health, it will also house a new health information library. With clear sight on being a digital heart hospital, the centre is built with leverage on technology to integrate clinical systems to improve the processes and outcomes of care.
