About the Charity
Established in 1910, KWSH is a charitable healthcare organisation and is registered as an Institution of Public Character, committed to looking after the sick and needy. At present, KWSH operates a nursing home, a rehabilitation centre, a traditional Chinese medicine centre, three community care centres and offers home care services. It is now one of the most established providers in the ILTC (Intermediate and Long-Term Care) sector.
This year, our new chronic sick wards co-located within the same building as the upcoming Kallang Polyclinic (operated by National Healthcare Group) will furnish an additional 128 beds and boost our total capacity to 750 beds. Our fourth Kwong Wai Shiu Care centre, KWS Care @ MacPherson, will also be ready to serve the community. Moving forward, a second nursing home located at Potong Pasir is set to be ready in 2022. The Hospital will eventually operate close to 1,200 nursing home beds in total, making us one of the largest nursing home operators in Singapore. The increase in number of residents and the expansion of our services mean that the Hospital's overall operating cost is expected to hit an estimated $60 million by 2022.
The majority of our beneficiaries are from lower-income families and their fees are heavily subsidised by KWSH. The generosity of the community has certainly aided us in sustaining the daily operations of the Hospital.
