Named after Singaporean entrepreneur, Ng Teng Fong, the hospital is part of an integrated development together with the adjoining Jurong Community Hospital. It began operations on 30 June 2015 after JurongHealth's move from Alexandra Hospital and was officially opened on 10 October 2015.

Delay in completion
The completion of the hospital was delayed by 6 months due to problems with the production of materials needed for the exterior of the hospital. Due to the delay, Alexandra Hospital, which was due to close temporarily for renovation once the hospital is completed, remained operational till construction of the hospital is complete. Later, it was announced that the hospital would open on June 30, 2015.
The hospital commenced operations on 30 June 2015.
On 10 October 2015, Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, along with Jurong Community Hospital, was officially opened at JurongHealth's Health Carnival, by guest-of-honour Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
