The Tan Tock Seng Hospital is the third-largest hospital in Singapore after the Institute of Mental Health Singapore and Singapore General Hospital, but its accident and emergency department is the busiest in the country largely due to its geographically centralised location. Set up in 1844 by entrepreneur and philanthropist Tan Tock Seng, the hospital came under the international spotlight when it was designated as the sole treatment centre for the SARS epidemic which struck the country in 2003.
In Tan Tock Seng Hospital, putting patients first is our priority. We respect the rights of our patients, provide high quality care and strive to deliver the best possible outcome.
