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 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.
