An odd-job worker and his family's sole breadwinner, Mr Chen wondered what would happen if he didn't regain his strength and mobility. What would happen to him and his loved ones?
He is thankful to the hospital for helping him recover, pay for his medical bills and transport when he needs to go for medical appointments.
He said in Mandarin: 'If not for the help from the hospital, I would have no money to see the doctor and have a chance to recover, let alone go back and provide for my family.'
About the Charity
St Luke's Hospital, named after the patron saint of the medical profession, was the first hospital in Singapore dedicated to the elderly sick. We have expanded our services beyond the elderly to enrich more lives. An Institution of a Public Character, we care for 2,000 inpatients and 2,000 outpatients each year, regardless of race, language or religion. As illnesses may be long and chronic, we care holistically for patients' physical, emotional and psychosocial well-being. Impactful and innovative in transforming community care, we were the first recipient of the President's Award for Social Impact (2012), and the first community hospital to receive the National Healthcare Innovation and Productivity Medal (National University Hospital - St Luke's Hospital Integrated Care Path, 2016).
