This study aimed to make longitudinal comparisons on the epidemiology of VRE in an acute hospital and its closely-affiliated ILTCs. Materials and methods We conducted period prevalence surveys screening for VRE in JuneJuly 2014-2016, in an adult acute tertiary-care hospital (AH) and 6 of its affiliated ILTCs, in Singapore. Stool or rectal swabs were obtained and cultured using selective chromogenic agar. Epidemiologic data was obtained from electronic medical records. To compare differences in VRE prevalence, multivariable logistic regression models were constructed. Results Of 5359 patients screened, 9.8  were VRE colonized. VRE prevalence was significantly higher in the AH (14.2 ) than in intermediate-care (ITC) (7.6 ) and long-term care (LTC) (0.8 ) facilities (P < 0.001). In the AH, VRE prevalence decreased from 19.8  in 2014 to 14.0  in 2015 to 8.9  in 2016 (P < 0.001). In ITCs, VRE prevalence increased from 5.1  in 2014 to 9.9  in 2015 (P = 0.012) and was 7.4  in 2016 (P = 0.19).
