Alexandra Hospital, then named the British Military Hospital, was established in 1938 to serve as the principal hospital for the British in the Far East. It is credited with being the first hospital in South East Asia to successfully perform limb re-attachment to a patient. In 1971, the Singapore Government took over the hospital and it officially became a public hospital taking on its current name of Alexandra Hospital. Until it closed for renovations and reopened with limited services in August 2015, Alexandra Hospital was a major public hospital in Singapore with more than a thousand staff at its peak.
In August 2010, Jurong Health Services (JurongHealth) took over the management of Alexandra Hospital. JurongHealth also oversees the newly opened (June 2015) Ng Teng Fong General Hospital located in Jurong East town in western Singapore.
On 30 June 2015, Alexandra Hospital closed for renovations and its management was transferred to the Sengkang Health group which also oversees the future Sengkang General and Community Hospitals. Patients were moved to the new Ng Teng Fong Hospital in Jurong.
On 11 August 2015, Alexandra Hospital reopened partially with limited services (inpatient and allied health services). Specialist clinic services are expected to be ready in 2016.
