Since our founding in 1844, TTSH has had roots in the community – being supported by the community and supporting the community in return.
As Singapore’s healthcare needs evolve, our mission is expanding alongside it: to serve patients who come to the hospital, but also to care for the people in the wider community.
Central Health is a network of health and social care partners caring for the residents of Central Singapore. Our integrated care model sees more than 80 partners joining up care closer to residents across seven subzones.
Together, we seek to build Healthier, Happier Communities, where people are activated and supported to live well and age well in their homes and communities.
Community Health Teams
Community Health Teams are multi-disciplinary teams embedded in the seven subzones that TTSH serves. Each CHT works with partners in their subzone to co-develop care plans for residents, as well as operate
Community Health Posts located within partners' premises.
Key members of the CHT are our Health Coaches, who aim to encourage healthier, active living among residents through personalised guidance based on each resident's individual needs and goals.
They also develop and conduct wellness activities and structured programmes that incorporate elements of group work and experiential activities that encourage peer support amongst residents and application of new skills and knowledge.
Together, residents are empowered to create lasting change in their own lives and health, and to build a supportive peer network around them that encourages them to continue to their healthier lifestyle habits.
