Celebrating 200 years of medicine in Singapore

In 2021, SingHealth celebrates 200 years of Medicine in Singapore, with our flagship hospital - Singapore General Hospital (SGH) – marking its Bicentennial!

We have come a long way with the nation, caring for generations of Singaporeans in good and tough times, in a journey enriched by the breadth and depth of expertise of each healthcare institution within the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre (AMC) family.

This strong foundation, rooted in a legacy of excellence, is the result of visionary and dedicated healthcare professionals with a strong moral compass and a dedicated commitment to our values and sense of purpose.

Today, with a network of acute hospitals, national specialty centres, community hospitals and polyclinics offering over 40 clinical specialties, the SingHealth Duke-NUS AMC is well placed to drive the transformation of healthcare and provide affordable, accessible and quality healthcare to all Singaporeans.

As we celebrate 200 years of Medicine in Singapore (MedSG200), join us as we trace our journey with the nation.

MedSG200 logo

In celebration, we have developed a logo to be used across collaterals and at our events from January 2021. The logo features an extension of SingHealth’s 20th Anniversary logo, representing our collective, continued pursuit to define tomorrow’s medicine. Our institution colours are applied on the interconnecting “O”s of the logo, reflecting how each of our roles are intertwined and crucial in this pursuit.

The History of Public Healthcare

The story of public healthcare in Singapore begins with SGH, the country’s pioneer public healthcare institution and first acute care hospital.

Many of our hospitals and national specialty centres saw their genesis in SGH. Stay tuned as we share how SingHealth grew from strength to strength, emerging as a global thought-leader in shaping the future of Medicine.
