Parkway Group Healthcare's corporate history states that Gleneagles Hospital had its beginnings as a 45-bed private nursing home known as Gleneagles Nursing Home which was later incorporated as a private company called Gleneagles Hospital Limited on 16 January 1958. The building which housed the hospital at Napier Road was originally a hotel called Gleneagles Hotel. Situated opposite the Singapore Botanical Gardens, the hotel had large open lounges, tastefully decorated rooms and suites, and offered excellent cuisine. After it was bought over by the hospital, the building's interiors were converted to suit a hospital's requirements. The new hospital opened to the public on 8 June 1959. Between 1979 and 1980, the building was expanded to become a 126-bed medical centre. In May 1987, Parkway Holdings bought Gleneagles Hospital for S$46 million.
