    Excellence in Public Service Awards 2017

    Our NTFGH Principal Medical Social Worker, Alvin Chua, received the PS21 Distinguished Star Service Award at the Excellence in Public Service Awards 2017 ceremony. Lianhe Zaobao featured him on 22 May for handling a rather special case of a 20-year-old patient. The young lady have had to move from place to place ever since her parents passed away when she was young. She sought treatment at NTFGH after she was assaulted by her friend whom she was staying with. Kudos to Alvin for his passion and dedication in going the extra mile for this patient and others in need!

    Excellence in Public Service Awards 2016

    For her dedication and commitment to providing quality care to our patients, our Senior Staff Nurse (SSN) Jaya Jothi S Thoondi, received the PS21 Star Service Award at the Excellence in Public Service Awards Ceremony 2016. The PS21 Star Service Award recognises outstanding public service individuals who embody the best customer service ways and have made a difference to the lives of others. 



    The Healthcare Humanity Awards (HHA) are given out to healthcare workers who are inspirational models. They exemplify the values of courage, dedication, selflessness, and steadfastness in ethics, compassion and humanity. These values underscore healthcare as a noble profession, and not merely a job.

    The HHA is a continuing legacy of the Courage Awards, which were first given out in 2003 to healthcare heroes for their courageous fight against Sars. 

    Healthcare Humanity Awards 2020

    Nurse Clinician Ranjit Kaur always tries to lift the spirits of those around her, lending a hand to colleagues who need help and attending to patients beyond her working hours. To her teammates, she is someone to count on. To the terminally-ill, she is a source of strength and comfort. To patients who are receiving post-discharge support, she is trusted like a friend. Ranjit has also been contributing outside her nursing profession. She is a regular volunteer on a PAP Home Visit Team, and has been on overseas missions to help victims of natural disasters. Having rendered medical assistance to tsunami and flood victims in Aceh and Orissa, Ranjit has inspired many to rally to the aid of those in need.

    During this pandemic, Principal Enrolled Nurse Norhashimah Binte Hashim took care of COVID-19 patients in the ward. Despite the challenges, she was touched by the positive attitude of many migrant workers. Together with friends and family members, she initiated a donation drive and gave out dates, snacks and prayer mats during Ramadan. Norhashimah also has a heart for children deprived of basic necessities. Since 2013, she has made many overseas trips on her own to help the less fortunate. Noting the plight of poor village children in Cambodia and Indonesia, she spearheaded many campaigns to improve their lives. This includes teaching them good hygiene and how to speak basic English.

    Senior Staff Nurse Kamala D/O Velu works as a Case Manager in our Emergency Department and holds frequent discussions with clinicians to prepare patients for discharge. She conducts comprehensive assessments of the patient’s health, and also coordinates multiple aspects of care with caregivers and healthcare professionals like physiotherapists, pharmacists and medical social workers. Having begun volunteering in secondary school, Kamala dedicates a huge part of her life outside of work to caring for those in her community. She has inspired 20 nursing colleagues to volunteer their time at fundraising and social events at several nursing homes. In addition, she trains pre-school teachers in first aid for children and infants, and also contributes to health screenings held at temples to benefit the needy.

    Healthcare Humanity Awards 2019

    Assistant Nurse Clinician Maznah Marmin was one of the ten award recipients to receive the Honourable Mention at the Healthcare Humanity Award 2019 and is the first in JurongHealth Campus to receive this Honourable Mention. Apart from her role as a specialty care nurse at NTFGH Neurology, ANC Maznah is an active volunteer who has assisted villagers in Kelantan contain the spread of malaria. In March 2018, ANC Maznah travelled to Bangladesh to provide medical relief to Rohingya refugees as part of the Muslim Healthcare Professionals Association. She does us proud and we continue to be inspired by her acts of service to humanity.

    Healthcare Humanity Awards 2018

    Nurse Clinician Guat Hoon is one of our pioneer staff who has been with us since our early days. Donning hard hat and safety boots, she was heavily involved in setting up and commissioning our Emergency Department at NTFGH to ensure that the area was operationally ready and safe for receiving patients. Aside from her nursing duties, she was also tasked to lead the Decontamination Unit, which involved drafting policies, workflow processes, and creating a training curriculum to equip over 300 hospital staff with the skills to manage the decontamination process in response to a civil emergency. With over 20 years of experience in the ED, she describes her career in three words – challenging, interesting, and fulfilling! Even outside of work, she is steadfast in her belief to save lives and puts her nursing skills to good use by volunteering as a first aider at medical mission trips and marathon events.

    Healthcare Humanity Awards 2017

    Advanced Practice Nurse Clarice Wee has been looking after critically ill patients since she started her nursing career in 2007. She ensures that her patients receive the care that they need in their vulnerable moments and offers comfort to their families. Her parents were initially apprehensive about her career choice, worried that nursing was a tough job and that she’d be cleaning patients up most of the time. But 10 years on, APN Clarice is still in the ICU and she has never looked back. We are proud of Clarice for leading by example!

    Healthcare Humanity Awards 2016

    Our Senior Enrolled Nurse, June Ng, was one of the 101 healthcare heroes honoured at the HHA 2016. With over three decades of nursing experience, SEN June has seen the spectrum of human emotions – hope, suffering, triumph and loss. Despite the demands of her day-to-day duties, she took on responsibilities beyond her nursing scope of work to help set up and commission the new Endoscopy Centre at ‪NTFGH‬. Beyond the hospital, SEN June regularly participates in JurongHealth's community outreach activities and goes on voluntary mission trips every year. Her resilience and dedication to provide quality care to her patients those in need are indeed inspiring.

    Healthcare Humanity Awards 2015

    The HHA 2015 honoured 62 recipients, one of which was our Principal Enrolled Nurse, Jasmine Goh, who has served as a nurse for more than 30 years. Ms Goh is held in high regard by her colleagues and patients. She takes great pride in her work, often going the extra mile for those who require her assistance. On more than one occasion, Ms Goh has devoted her personal time to help patients in need change their wound dressings on a daily basis. The patients' families were very grateful to her and have continued to keep in touch with her. A nurse for over 30 years, Ms Goh uses her expertise to volunteer her services at community outreach programmes. In 2011, she received a long service award for her service to the community.

    Healthcare Humanity Awards 2014

    54 healthcare professionals were honoured at the HHA 2014, of which two were JurongHealth Campus nurses.

    Mdm Kuttiammal Sundarasan
    Chief Nurse, NTFGH

    A nurse of 40 years, Mdm Kuttiammal worked through the ranks from an Assistant Nurse before taking on the role of Director, Nursing, when Jurong Health Services was set up in 2009. An extraordinary nurse leader, she made significant contributions to the growth of the organisation, including the mammoth task of building the new hospitals.

    Under her leadership, our nursing team pushed for a patient-centred design and process, innovation, IT, training and enhanced career development. As a team, our nurses achieved many "firsts", such as the integrated Electronic Patient Information Board which eliminates the use of paper and provides up-to-date information at the patient’s bedside, the electronic medication cart and closed-loop system for medication administration which ensures patient safety, as well as the interactive learning application called “Virtual Nurse” which allows nurses to continually enhance their nursing knowledge.



    The Public Sector Transformation Awards recognises individuals and teams from the public service for their excellence in service delivery, innovation and best practices.

    Senior Staff Nurse Mary Jane, Ward C5, Jurong Community Hospital, is a very devoted and passionate nurse. Her propensity to render assistance to those in need outside of the hospital is a strong testament to her dedication.

    Mary Jane always lends a listening ear and forges friendships with her patients. She once helped a patient, who was despondent about her divorce while concurrently dealing with a terminal illness, to focus on the positive things in her life. Eventually, they became friends and even celebrated Christmas together.

    Other than her strong ability to empathise with her patients, Mary Jane was also recognised by Ng Teng Fong General Hospital as the “Best Clinical Instructor/Preceptor” for nursing students. Congratulations to Senior Staff Nurse Mary Jane on receiving the Exemplary Service Excellence Award 2020!
