Minister Ong Ye Kung revealed that when he visited the Sian Chay Boon Lay Branch three years ago, he proposed to Toh Soon Huat that Sian Chay set up a charity Chinese medicine clinic to take care of the elderly in the division. He said: “When I visited the Sian Chay Boon Lay Branch, I felt that the residents were really blessed as Sian Chay Medical Institution is there. The elderly has little money or no money at all for the medical service. Gambas Branch did not come easily. When it was being set up, it also encountered many difficulties.
Chairman Toh came forward, overcame all challenges, held townhall sessions and other activities with the residents. After many efforts, the residents have found the clinic very helpful and are very pleased. Thank you, Mr. Toh Soon Huat and the team and Dato’ Seri Dr Derek Goh and his family for their support. Thank you!”According to Chairman Toh Soon Huat, the Gambas branch was opened in 2017 and served an average of 100 patients daily. Two physicians and one tuina therapist at the branch can serve five to six patients concurrently. ”
