KK Women's and Children's Hospital - Hospital Charges and Services
: : Mount Alvernia Hospital : :
I do agree with that KK does look down on "lower grade" people, this I am proud to say that Mount A. dont't have that attidude.
most important of all is where your gynae is based on & fm there you decide where you should put up.
But if I have the choice i rather goes to other hospital than KK. FYI, even when my boy is sick & need immediate medical attention I also goes to Mount A. if my pediatrician is off fm his clinic. Mount A. waiting time is so much shorter than KK.

For my opinion choose Mt A.
I have given to my 3 babies at Mt A. Loved their service, the food and ethe nurses over there. My Gynae Is Dr Chen Lin Han, his clinic at chong pang. He delivered at Mt A or Thomson Medical Center.
Hi, i exp both Kandang Kerbau Hospital & Mt Alv..Thumbs up for Mt ALv..Luv thier service,food.. staffs all friendly & helpful & Labour Ward nurses are very professional than Kandang Kerbau Hospital..Book for 4bedded but got 2bedded(Pay for 4Bed)... i spend only2.4k, cash $600..
what about deciding between Thomson Medical Center or Mt A?
Mt A recent charge
overall you are gtg for Normal Or C-sec? (staying 2 beded but paiding 4 beded pricing)
If you are gtg for Normal Cash out Is @S$700 than Medisave is $3950 than for C-sec is @S$900. For my case is C-sec still got balance of $300 like that.
For the cost that I mention is everything gtg smooth.
for my case.....
During my son times coz $$$ issues so I gtg Kandang Kerbau Hospital than everything ready under Medisave but the service are not that good . Than for my daugther I think alot back coz during the times in Kandang Kerbau Hospital are long waiting, service, times and etc..... than I ask my hubby he did say paid abit more get a better service. Coz time is $$$ I ready agree with him less waiting times, better service and etc...
So during tis time I and my hubby dont mind to wrk harder to have a better service...As for your hubby say the choose is urs. Think careful coz ready you are the 1 that gtg to deliver.
Overall I did a compare
Kandang Kerbau Hospital If private => the service is good . (No point coz you can a better service @ private hospital)
Mt E => too exp
Thomson => service good, but have to paid abit more if you compare w Mt A.
Mt A => overall the private hospital is the cheaper that you can get. good service (Thumb up)
NUH => service ok, but alot of trainee...
singapore general hospital => service ok
Hope that is can help you.

Agree with the rest of the ladies
choose Kandang Kerbau Hospital, if you have budget constraints and are aiming for the subsidies. Then be prepared to be treated like a "product" being processed through a machine with little or no thought for your feelings as a human being. They really dislike people who dont't follow their 'standard operating procedures'.
choose Mt A, if you are able to spend a little more money. Nurses are friendlier and more compassionate. Also, I like the catholic atmosphere.
between Thomson Medical Center and Mt A... well, I chose Thomson Medical Center as my gynae had his office there... but to be honest, there's little diff between the two in my opinion.
added their package details for your refer :
Thomson Medical Centre

hi, my choice will be Mt. A. for my lst trimster i was in kk, e waitin time (veri LONG n troublesome) n bad services frm e hospital ask me to change hospital. even though is private in kk, e service still not veri good. so i went to Mt.A is i reali made a right choice, their service reali thumb up.....
i'll stil go Mt. A for my nxt birth..
I would like to know there is a few mummy paid 4 bedded in Mount A but end up in 2 bedded. May i know why is this so?
I heard that Mt.A is actually cheaper than Thomson Medical Center? Is it true???
wah, didnt know KK is so horrible!
i had pin at kk, was still ok. when i delivered, the nurses there still alrights, can joke with me n all. so i would say i had a pleasant time there.
guess i was lucky.
but after hearing so many horror stories, i think i might consider Mt A for my next child.
Wow!! for those who have upgrade to 2 bedded are so lucky.. i'm still considering on 4 bedded or 2 bedded.
will it be worth it to go for single bedded?
i delivered my baby boy 3rd july at Kandang Kerbau Hospital(C-Sec). Services at delivery suite was good. I had no problem there. the food was good too. After the delivery i was shifted to B+ ward but i dint knw tht i was in B+ ward instead of C ward. So i liked the room and the services there. the nurses were good and friendly. After sometime later they shifted me to C ward as i preffered. the moment i was shifted there, i wanted to tell them to change my ward. The ppl were noisy there.. i couldnt rest quitely.. i was just out from the operation n all i wanted was to rest peacefully but i cldnt. Than it comes to the services. I dint not like most of the nurses there. its like they hessitated to do something if you ask for. but the rest was ok for me. and dnt even talk about the food there. It SUCKS mann...
but i did not bother to change the ward as we r newly married couple and we didnt had much savings to spare. so i told my hubby tht its ok i will tolerate for 3days of my stay. at least they take care of my baby i will be happy. as the nurses took care of my baby at nursing room, i dint knw whether they feed my baby or took good care of him.
After i got discharged, the nxt day i was supposed to visit the polyclinic to check for my babys J level. so they took his weight agn. and i was shocked when doctor said he loss 300g upon discharge. This shows how good care they took of my child. So from this i will have to think where i want to deliver my 2nd n 3rd baby.
So think before you decide.
i was a total subsidy. So my total bill was 5K. but i had to pay 1.2k+ altogather.
I feedback to my own pediatrician about this issue. He said there are two possibilities. Firstly, it might be due to not using the same weighing scale that results in different readings. Secondly is because the baby is under UV lights, he or she tend to dehydrate.
In conclusion, if the same thing were to happen again, I will never go Kandang Kerbau Hospital again.
Wow, after so many feedback i think i will go to Mount A for better service. I think at least after i give birth, better service and environment will allow me to rest well and enjoy the stay.
Heard from my gynae that from 1st jun/jul, the limitation on medisave withdrawal for maternity service has increase. is it true?
