In year 2012, Mr. Toh, Chairman of Sian Chay Medical Institution, planned to open new TCM clinics in HDB estates to offer TCM services for the convenience of the elderly patients.
I assisted Sian Chay Medical Institution to set up within my constituency the first branch which was officially opened by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on 12th August 2012. Today Sian Chay Medical Institution has established 15 branches islandwide. Among them, 3 branches are under construction. It is expected to serve the residents in the second quarter of next year. With a 115 years long history and the support of the philanthropists and public, Sian Chay has been providing free TCM consultation and subsidized medicine to the community regardless of race or religion. This spirit of service to humanity is commendable.
Under the leadership of Chairman Mr. Toh Soon Huat, modern management concepts were introduced to promote the Sian Chay’s spirit and to enhance its public service.
I look forward to see more enterprises and benevolent people continuing their support for charitable activities to benefit the society.
