Bukit Panjang Polyclinic and Senja Care Home is Singapore’s first co-located polyclinic and senior care facility. The building is set into a sloping hill, with Senja Road at 9m above Woodlands Road. Vehicles enter from Woodlands Road at Level 1, where the first 2 stories consist of carparks and communal spaces for the Bukit Panjang community.

Pedestrians can enter from Woodlands Road at Level 1, from Senja Road at Level 4, or via the overhead bridge at Level 5. The multiple entry points provide universal accessibility and integration into the community.

The 60-person senior care centre and polyclinic are located at the third to fifth stories, with the 365-bed senior care home located above, from the seventh to twelfth storeys. Co-location allows the sharing of an automated pharmacy, community rehabilitation and physiotherapy services, providing a continuum of care for seniors.

With a focus on the patient experience, physical and technological features make wayfinding intuitive, such as clear departmental and room coding/numbering systems supplemented by colours and floral motifs and bright day-lit waiting areas with views to greenery.
