Why is health screening important?
Health screening is a proactive step to staying healthy. Regular
health screening gives you a snapshot of your health status and lets you know
how your body is doing from time to time. Regular health screening is also your
surest bet to detecting serious conditions for early treatment, before complications
Early detection allows for early treatment, which may reduce
the possibility of further complications and significantly reduce the overall
cost of treatment.
What does health screening involve?
Health screening generally involves blood, urine and stool
tests, and other procedures like X-rays, ultrasound scans and electrocardiograms.
A doctor will also record your medical history and conduct a physical examination.
Once all the tests are completed, the results will be consolidated
into a personal health screening report which you can take home. A follow-up
appointment will be scheduled with the doctor to review the findings and provide
you with the necessary medical advice.
What special packages and promotional events do you have?
We have various health-screening packages to suit your needs
as listed in our brochure. There are also various customised packages throughout

How long does the executive health screening checkup take?
Typically, you would expect to be at the Centre for approximately
3 hours. This varies according to the range of tests included in your chosen

What is the sequence of the screening tests?
Typically you would go through the following screening stations:
• Height/ weight/ BMI/ Eye-check/ waist circumference measurement
• Urine and stool collection
• Diagnostic imaging tests e.g. x-ray, ultrasound
• History-taking and medical checkup by doctor
• Review with doctor after completion of entire checkup at a later date
Note: higher end packages may also need you to go through the following:
• Stress treadmill
• Lung function test
• Special eye tests
The sequence doesn’t need to follow as above as we want to optimise your
turnaround time. We are also mindful that some tests require fasting and we
aim to manage the flow to complete these tests first so that you can have your
breakfast as soon as possible.
When will I receive my health screening results?

you return for your personal review with our doctor. This review will typically
take place one week after your checkup, according to available slots and your
