About TTSH

175 banner



TTSH was the first hospital started by the community to care for the community in 1844. Over the years, we have been constantly upgrading our capabilities to better care for patients in our hospital and nurture the next generation of competent healthcare professionals.

As we celebrate 175 years of care, we envision the future of care beyond the hospital into the community to span the whole care continuum and better support the people to lead healthier and meaningful lives.

The Hospital has 61 medical disciplines and three institutes that are spearheading care, research and innovations in geriatric medicine and ophthalmology. With more than 1,600 beds and powered by 9,000 healthcare staff, TTSH sees over 2,700 patients at its specialist clinics and some 450 patients at its emergency department every day.

With a strong quality culture steeped in patient safety, TTSH actively challenges itself to provide faster, better, cheaper and safer care for patients by investing in its staff, facilities, medical technology and system improvements. TTSH is part of the National Healthcare Group, providing holistic and integrated patient care.

Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH)’s heritage takes us back more than 170 years when it was built as a hospital for the poor in the Chinese community. Today, TTSH remains committed to its legacy of compassion, philanthropy and care and its duty as a people’s hospital.
