Alexandra Hospital (AH), together with National University Health System (NUHS) and NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, has launched what it claims to be the world’s first public hospital’s healthy longevity clinic in Singapore.

The new Healthy Longevity Clinic, which is co-located with the NUHS Centre for Healthy Longevity research unit at Alexandra Hospital, intends to defer biological ageing.

The aim is to grow health span via evidence-based diagnosis and intervention.

In a press statement, Alexandra Hospital said: “The clinic also aims to establish the cost-effectiveness of the service in optimising health and increasing healthspan. The ultimate goal is to persuade policymakers in Singapore to consider making evidence-based longevity medicine and care more accessible to more people.”

The facility will tap innovations from the NUHS research Centre for Healthy Longevity (CHL) as well as integrate advancements in geroscience and healthy longevity medicine towards precision medicine, leveraging ageing biomarkers unique to Singaporeans.

Led by clinical assistant professor Laureen Wang, the clinic aims to increase the health span of Singapore’s people by three years within the next decade.
