Mount Elizabeth Hospital, known colloquially as Mount E, is a 345-bed private hospital in Singapore operated by Parkway Health.[1] Construction began in 1976 and the hospital officially opened on 8 December 1979. The hospital specialises in cardiology, oncology, and neuroscience, among other tertiary services. It is also recognised as a multi-organ transplant specialty hospital.[2] Since 1995, it is owned by Parkway Holdings Ltd.

The hospital is accredited by Joint Commission International and is located in Singapore's Orchard Road,[3] on Mt Elizabeth. It is the first private hospital in Singapore to perform open heart surgery and to establish a nuclear medicine centre.[1]

The Royal Family of Brunei built a Royal Suite in the hospital for their own use. It was later made available for use by other patients.[3]

In 2016 the cost of a bed in a four-bed ward was $276 a night. A single room was $640 a night.[4]
