In certain conditions, patients need or opt to get support from healthcare facilities in another country. Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore aids its international patients, including from the Philippines, to access its services and experience its various medical expertise.

The Patient Assistance Center serves Filipino patients and their families who need support in medical and travel arrangements, thus lessening their stress over the process of acquiring a healthcare service in another country.

Attending to these needs of patients and their families are the trained, dedicated, and warm staff of the Patient Assistance Center, who would assure their stress-free and comfortable journey.

Some of the one-stop concierge services of the Patient Assistance Center include medical referrals and appointment booking; evacuation and repatriation assistance; flight reservation; visa application and extension; accommodation arrangement; airport meet-and-greet service and domestic transfer arrangement; direct admission arrangement; assistance before, during, and after hospitalization; multi-language translation and interpreter service; hospital billing and financial inquiries.

Through the Patient Assistance Center in the Philippines, Filipinos can reach the world-class medical care and off-shore medical treatment that Mount Elizabeth Hospital could provide, which can also bring peace of mind for the patients.
